Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs

Over the holidays my kids loved making the viral TikTok Hot Cocoa Bombs and since then, we’ve had a blast coming up with all sorts of flavors.

Being that my kids LOVE Fruity Pebbles, we knew we had to figure out a way to combine their favorite cereal and hot cocoa.

Bring in the Fruit Pebble Hot Cocoa Bombs!! These were so fun to make and so tasty too!

Hot Cocoa Bomb Tips:

  • Avoid getting the candy melts wet (as in with water) or they will seize and will be ruined.
  • The chocolate bombs need to be stored somewhere cool or they will melt.
  • Avoid holding or touching the hot cocoa bombs for too long or they will melt in your hands.
  • You can wear food safe gloves to avoid getting fingerprints on your chocolate bombs.
  • To have easier control of the silicone molds and to make the chocolate come out easier, you can cut the silicone molds so that each sphere mold is by itself. You can read how to cut your hot chocolate bomb mold here.
  • To make a hot plate, place a microwave safe plate inside the microwave for 30 seconds and check on it. If it’s hot enough, remove with a heat resistant mitten. If not, heat for another 30 seconds until hot.
  • To store, keep them in an airtight container in fridge to avoid melting. 
  • You do not need to spray the silicone mold with cooking spray, the hot cocoa bombs pop right out without any extra steps.
  • You can place them inside sealed bags for gift giving.

How to Use Hot Chocolate Bombs

Once your hot chocolate bomb is ready to be used, drop into 8-10 oz of hot milk or stick into the bottom of a cup and pour 8-10 oz of hot milk over the chocolate bomb.

Watch the hot chocolate bomb melt before your eyes. Stir and drink to enjoy!

You can use whatever milk you want such as whole, skim or even almond milk. We use 1% milk.

Keep in mind, use less milk if you want a more rich taste and use more milk if you want a less rich taste.

What You Need to Make Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs

In a medium sized, microwave safe bowl, melt the white melting wafers in 30 second increments, stirring in between to prevent burning. This should only take 60-90 seconds.

  • Vanilla Flavored Melting Wafers – I used Ghirardelli’s brand for this instead of Wilton candy melts because I feel that they are less sweet and better suited for these cocoa bombs.
  • Colored Candy Melts –  For this, I did use Wilton’s candy melts for the use of color to enhance the look of these. Such a small amount of them were used that they don’t alter the flavor too much. I used pink, royal blue and light blue.
  • Strawberry Milk Chocolate Mix – I used Nesquik as that is what is available to me. The strawberry flavor further enhances the fruity pebbles flavor however regular hot cocoa mix or even white hot cocoa mix will work well.
  • Fruity Pebbles Cereal – This creates such a wonderful flavor in the drink, making it obviously fruity and sweet.
  • Mini Marshmallows – Because all hot chocolate deserves mini marshmallows.
  • Half Sphere Silicone Mold
  • Pastry Brush – You can also use a spoon
  • 1 medium sized, microwave safe bowl
  • 3 small sized, microwave safe bowls
  • Small microwave safe plate

How to Make Fruity Pebbles Hot Cocoa Bombs

Once melted, evenly coat each mold with about 2 tablespoons using your pastry brush or spoon.

Once the molds are coated, place into the refrigerator for about 10-15 minutes until the chocolate has hardened.

Remove from fridge and apply a second layer of chocolate and let set again. Then gently remove each half sphere from the mold and set aside.

In 3 small, microwave safe bowls, melt each of the colored candy melts in 30 second increments, stirring between. This should only take about 30-60 seconds.

Separate 6 of the sphere halves and reserve the other 6 for the bottoms. One at a time, take the six tops and using the pastry brush, brush a thin layer of a colored candy melt over the outside of each half sphere.

Quickly dip into the fruity pebbles or gently press cereal onto the half sphere and let sit until hardened.

In the other 6 plain white halves, spoon in 1 tablespoon of strawberry chocolate milk powder. Top with ½ tablespoon or more of the fruity pebbles cereal and several mini marshmallows.

Warm a small, microwave safe plate in the microwave for about 45-60 seconds. Place the empty, “painted” half on the warm plate for a few seconds to let the edge melt. The warm, melted edge acts as a glue.

Immediately place on top of the coordinating, filled half sphere. Run a clean finger along the edge to clean it up. Finish connecting the other 5 spheres.
