Easter Bunny Hot Cocoa Bombs are hollow chocolate Easter Bunnies filled with hot cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, and colorful sprinkles. Drop them into a mug of hot milk and they melt into a delicious mug of hot chocolate.
Use a heated knife to gently press into the bunny to slowly melt through and cut it open. (Knife heating instructions in the notes below)
Using a funnel, add sprinkles, hot cocoa mix, and marshmallows to the hollow bunny. Fill the hot cocoa mix about 2/3 of the way up, leaving room for the marshmallows to fill the rest of the bunny.
Depending on how fast you worked, the chocolate may still be melty, in which case, it’s super easy just to pop it back together.
If the chocolate has hardened, heat the knife back up in the same manner in which you heated it the first time. Press one of the cut sides of the bunny back to the hot knife to get it a bit melty, and press the bunny back together.
The chocolate will set after a few minutes, or you can pop the filled bunny in the fridge until the chocolate is nice and set again.
Place the filled bunny in a large mug and pour steaming hot milk over the top. Let the chocolate melt, the marshmallows pop out, then stir until dissolved.
I heated my knife with a kitchen blow torch (you may have one if you ever made crème brulee). Alternatively, you could use a lighter to heat your knife, like the kind you may use to start a grill, or the gas burner on a stove. As always, please be careful with heat and flames especially if you are working with children nearby. If those methods don’t work for you, you can use a hot plate (warm-up an empty plate by putting it in the microwave with a small bowl of water for 30-60 seconds), or a warmed skillet to press the knife against, or run the knife under really hot water and dry completely before use.
