Halloween Zombie Hot Cocoa Bombs


  • 1 cup black candy melts
  • 1 cup light green candy melts
  • 21 bits marshmallows
  • 6 tablespoons hot cocoa mix
  • 6 large candy eyeball sprinkles
  • green mini pearl sprinkles
  • Wilton black gel, for decorating
  • cocoa bomb mold


  1. Melt the black and green candy melts separately as directed on the package.
  2. Using the back of a spoon place green and black candy melts into the mold and lightly swirl while coating the mold. Make sure you cannot see the mold through the candy melts. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  3. Once the candy melts are hardened remove the domes carefully. Set aside.
  4. Heat a frying pan to low heat. Place the bomb edge side down into the pan. Melt slightly just to even out edges. Pull it up and fill with two tablespoons hot cocoa mix and 7 marshmallows.
  5. Quickly heat another dome edge and place on top of the one with the cocoa mix. Make sure to align the domes well. Repeat for the other two hot cocoa bombs.
  6. Using cooled, not hot chocolate, paint some onto the back of the candy eyeball and place on the front of the chocolate bomb. Let dry. Paint chocolate on top of the chocolate bomb and place green pearl sprinkles to make a mohawk.
  7. Keep in the fridge in an airtight container until ready to use. If you need to keep longer, place in the freezer for up to a month.
  8. When you're ready to enjoy your hot cocoa bomb, heat 8 ounces of milk in the microwave, or on the stovetop.
  9. Place your cocoa bomb in a mug, and slowly pour the milk over it.
  10. Stir lightly to open the bomb and see the hot cocoa explode.
  11. Continue stirring until the candy melts and cocoa mix have melted, and enjoy!
