1 ½cupswhite vanilla melting wafers, such as Ghirardelli’s

6tablespoonsstrawberry milk powder mix (Nesquick)
2-3packages Pop Rocks, assorted flavors
Half sphere silicone mold
Milk for serving
In a medium sized, microwave safe bowl, melt the white vanilla flavored melts in 30 second increments, stirring in between. It should take about 1 minute for them to completely melt. Once melted, using a pastry brush or the back of a spoon, coat each mold with a thick layer of the white vanilla. Let set on the counter or in the fridge for a quicker set time. Once hardened, brush over any thin spots and the top edge to reinforce against fragility. Once hardened, carefully remove from the silicone mold.
In two small microwave safe bowls, melt the purple and pink candy melts separately, stirring every 30 seconds. Again, it should only take about 1 minute for them to melt. Once they are melted, spoon into two separate baggies and cut a small hole in one corner of each baggie. Drizzle each color over 6 halves of the candy spheres and let set.
In the other 6 plain spheres, place 1 tablespoon of the strawberry milk powder. Spoon some Pop Rocks on top of the hot chocolate mix. Top with several mini marshmallows.
To seal the bombs, warm a small plate in the microwave for 45 seconds. Set a decorated, empty sphere on the warm plate for a few seconds to melt the edge. Join each empty sphere with its corresponding filled half. Run a clean finger around the seal to clean it up.
Serve and enjoy, or package up to give away!
To make hot cocoa, place cocoa bomb in the bottom of a mug and pour warm milk over it. Once the bomb has melted, stir to mix the ingredients into the milk.
For best results, use vanilla flavored melting wafers. The regular white melting wafers like Wilton brand are too candy-like and combat the sweet fruit flavors of the candy.
For variety, try different flavored Pop Rocks, and vary the color of the drizzles.
