Valentine’s Day is coming and 2021 is needing some extra love. Conversation hearts are so uplifting and kind, I thought we had to do something this year including them.
Conversation Hearts have been around for years! Sweet love notes made out of candy melts inside a decadent cocoa bomb will make anyone happy to receive.
Valentine’s Day isn’t about the candy for me anymore, it’s about the thought.
Kids love making the Conversation Starters out of candy melts so they can also be included in this DIY project.
Since Cocoa Bombs are the viral craze right now, why not combine the two? I’ve already done Christmas Cocoa Bombs, New Year’s Eve Cocoa Bombs, Marriage Proposal Cocoa Bombs and a fun Surprise Valentine’s Day Cocoa Bomb.
It’s time to make surprise Cocoa Bombs with Conversation Hearts.
If you’re having a party, don’t forget some colorful straws.
Don’t forget, you can also use regular chocolate to make the Conversation Starter Cocoa Bombs. That would make for a chocolate bliss hot cocoa!
Lily’s White Chocolate Baking Chips (optional)
These conversation starter cocoa bombs make great party favors too!
Valentine’s Day isn’t all about romance. Don’t forget your BFF!
- Melt chocolate (start with 1 min 50% power) Do not over melt - just stir lumps until melted
- Spoon chocolate into the mold
- Put molds on a tray or cutting board and into refrigerator for 30 mins
- Pull chocolate molds out of molds when ready using gloves (if you don't want fingerprints)
- Heat up a plate for 1 minute
- Place mold on the plate to smooth out and fill with 1 Tablespoon of Cocoa Powder
- Place marshmallows inside
- Place other half of mold on hot plate and smooth out and immediately place on top of cocoa filled mold
- Heat up some white chocolate chips and spoon into a ziplock bag, cut off tip and drizzle on top.
- Add sprinkles
Exact amounts of ingredients needed or yield may vary depending on the actual silicone mold you use. Silicone molds come in all sizes - with the one's I purchased, I used the large ones, so if you don't use the exact same one we did, you may end up needing more or less of each ingredient. I used a full tablespoon of Cocoa in each mold.
If you are drizzling the white chocolate on top of bomb, make sure it cools a little otherwise it will put a hole in the bomb
