These green hot chocolate bombs are easy to make with these easy step-by-step ingredients that the kids are sure to love (especially when their milk turns green) making these the perfect treat for St. Patrick’s Day and to celebrate Dr. Suess Day!

In our house, we love celebrating holidays, big or small. One of our favorite things to celebrate is Dr. Seuss Day because one of the first books I have taught all my kids to read is “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.” It’s like reliving those memories all over again each year! We crack open the book and enjoy a Dr. Suess-inspired treat like these fun 1 Fish 2 Fish Rice Krispie Treats, but this year we are mixing it up with these fun Dr.Suess Hot Chocolate bombs. 

If you are a lover of hot chocolate bombs, you will definitely want to try our Valentines’ Day Hot Chocolate Bombs, Oreo Hot Chocolate Bombs, or our White Chocolate Hot Chocolate Bombs!

The Following Tools With Be Helpful When Making These!

How to make Dr. Seuss Hot Chocolate Bombs

  • First, Place a plate in the freezer.
  • Melt green candy melts in a microwaveable bowl on high for 30 seconds.
  • Stick a spoon in the chocolate to see if it’s beginning to melt. If it is you will need to decrease the power percentage on your microwave down to 60 percent and continue.
  • Continue to warm up chocolate in 30-second intervals stirring between each time. This may take 2-4 times.
  • When you stir the chocolate and see it’s mostly melted, heat for 15 seconds and stir until all lumps are gone and the chocolate is smooth.
  • Use the back of the spoon to coat the mold completely.
  • Wipe away any excess chocolate.
  • Freeze for 15-20 mins.
  • Prepare your set up for the contents inside of the cocoa bombs. Remove plate and mold from the freezer.
  • Carefully remove each half from the mold and set them on the now cold plate (this keeps them from melting)
  • Spoon in powdered coffee creamer and mini marshmallows (if you’d like)
  • Connect the two ends of the mold together by either melting chocolate to serve as a glue (piping bag method) or place the top half onto a heated plate to lightly melt the edges and stick them together.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure you place the plate in the freezer when you begin. This helps ensure your mold does not melt when you are piecing it together. 
  • The chocolate can and will burn if you do not stir it frequently or you overcook it. 
  • Be sure that when you are coating the mold with chocolate that you go all the way up to the edge. If you don’t you will not have anything to “glue” together and the pieces will not fit together. 
  • Be sure you coat your entire mold generously. The thinner your layer of chocolate the more fragile your hot chocolate bomb will be. 
  • Whatever you put in the hot cocoa bomb will end up in your hot chocolate. Please note sprinkles will not melt. They are certainly fun, but they can cause a choking hazard with little ones. 
  • These melt quickly! The more you touch them the quicker they will melt, so be careful how much you handle these.
  • Place your Dr. Seuss hot chocolate bomb on its side in the mug (so you can see the seam) this will help it to open and melt!

Storage

If you are making these prior to enjoying them, you will want to keep them in the freezer to prevent melting. 

How to Connect a Hot Chocolate Bomb together

The most complicated part of the process of making these is connecting the hot chocolate bomb, but don’t worry these tips will help you!

Hot Plate Method

Place a small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes and remove. It will be hot! Touch one halve of the hot chocolate bomb on the plate and let once it starts to warm up remove and stick your hot cocoa bomb together. 

Pipe Melted Chocolate

With your leftover melted chocolate add it to a piping bag and cut a small hole in the end. Then squeeze chocolate around the rim of the bottom sphere (filled with the filling) and place on the other half gently. Use your finger to gently smooth the chocolate.
