A cute and super simple Easter Hot Chocolate Bomb perfect for gifting or surprising the kids with in their Easter baskets!

Easter Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe

Hot Chocolate Bombs are one of my favorite easy recipes to make for gifting – especially during the holidays when I have a lot of people I need to whip up treats for!

Hot Chocolate Bombs can be prepared weeks ahead of time without any loss in quality, texture or flavor and always make for a cute and well-received gift.

I originally bought my Easter Egg silicone mold with the plan of making really intricate Easter Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs for my friends and family. I planned to use candy melts and sprinkles to create classic Easter Egg designs on each individual egg… but as is often the case (for me, at least) I over-estimated how much time I would have to prepare my hot chocolate bombs.

But, just because I was pressed for time didn’t mean I was about to make something less cute than I had originally envisioned! Cute bunny candies to the rescue!

The simple addition of these cute bunnies to the top of my Easter Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs transforms them from basic to super cute with very minimal work on my behalf. You can also add some colored mini marshmallows or candies for some added interest (my daughter insisted on the sixlets).

I ordered my bunny candies from Etsy, but if they are sold out or you need your candies quicker you can alternatively use these cute Wilton bunny icing decorations to add bunny features to your Easter eggs or this variety pack of bunny and chick icing decorations.

To gift your bunny hot chocolate bombs, be sure to use something sturdy like a cupcake container to prevent it from being broken, and then attach a little note explaining how to use a hot chocolate bomb.

You can use your hot chocolate bomb two ways:

  • Place the hot chocolate bomb in a mug and pour warm milk overtop
  • Place the hot chocolate bomb in a mug already filled with warm milk

How to Make Easter Bunny Hot Chocolate Bombs

Place the white candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and melt according to the package directions until completely smooth.

Place 1-2 Tablespoons of the melted candy coating into each mold cavity and use the back of a spoon to press the candy coating evenly around the mold. You want a thick, even coating. Reserve the remaining candy melts for later.

Allow the candy melts to set for an hour, or place in the freezer for 5-10 minutes.

Once the candy has set, gently peel the silicone mold away from the candy eggs and place the eggs on a baking sheet or other clean work surface.

Place 1 Tablespoon of the hot chocolate mix and 4-5 marshmallows in half of the half-egg cups, leaving the other half empty.

Next, you’re either going to heat a skillet or place a plate over a bowl of boiling water until it’s hot to the touch. (If using a skillet, remove from heat before proceeding.) Some people prefer heating a plate in a microwave but that’s personal preference.

Gently take one empty half-egg and press the edges against the hot plate/skillet until they start to melt. Immediately place this half-egg on top of one of the hot chocolate mix-filled half-eggs to form a sealed egg. Hold in place for about 30 seconds to set.

Repeat this sealing process with all of the half-eggs.

Remelt the unused candy melts and then scoop into a piping bag. Use to fix any imperfect sealed on the Easter egg bombs, and then add a dollop of melted candy melts to the top of each egg bomb. Quickly place one of the bunny icing decorations onto the candy melts and then garnish with additional sprinkles or sixlets.

Allow the candy melts to set completely before storing or using.
