Harry Potter Sorting Hat Hot Chocolate Bombs Recipe Ingredients
(makes 8 hot chocolate bombs)
For the homemade marshmallow recipe:
4 gelatine leaves
1/2 tbsp liquid glucose
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla extract
food colouring gel
3 tbsp icing sugar
3 tbsp cornflour
For the hot chocolate bombs:
400g white chocolate
200ml double cream
food colouring gel (red, blue, green, yellow)
Hogwarts house coloured candy
Milk (250ml per bomb to serve)
Harry Potter White Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe Method:
To create your homemade Hogwarts House marshmallows, begin by blooming the gelatine in the 70ml cold water until soft.
In a saucepan, heat the sugar, liquid glucose and remaining water until it reaches 120c. At this point you can add in the softened gelatine (with the excess water) and stir until dissolved.
Place your egg white into a bowl and whisk until frothy. Slowly pour the sugar syrup in, whisking continuously. Once all the syrup has been added, whisk on high around 8 minutes until you have a glossy meringue. Flavour with vanilla and continue whisking for a few more minutes. (Wizard Tip! You'll know it's ready when you can touch the side of the bowl and it should be cool)
Split the marshmallow into 4 bowls and dye into the Hogwarts House colours using food gel.
Mix the icing sugar and cornflour together and use this to coat the inside of your moulds. Spoon the marshmallow mixture in, level off until even, and then place in the fridge to set for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight).
To create the hot chocolate bombs, half temper the chocolate by breaking 100g into a bowl over simmering water and stirring until melted - remove from the heat. Roughly chop another 100g and slowly add into the melted chocolate, stirring as you go. This will gradually cool the chocolate down and temper it for you.
Pour the melted chocolate into the sphere moulds, swirl round until all sides are coated and then tip onto a wire rack over a baking tray. Leave for 30 seconds until the excess has dripped out. Clean the edges and place in the fridge to set for 10 minutes.
If you prefer a thicker shell you can coat the insides with additional melted chocolate using a brush.
Make the white chocolate ganache centres by heating the double cream until warm but not boiling. Split into four and colour with food gel to achieve your Hogwarts House colours.
Add 50g chocolate into each coloured cream and leave for 30 seconds before stirring through. Once smooth allow to cool and thicken.
Remove the marshmallows from the moulds and use an oiled knife to cut into small cubes. Dip them in the remaining icing sugar and corn flour mixture to prevent sticking.
Fill half the shells with marshmallows, candy and the matching coloured ganache. Use some more melted chocolate to stick the other half shell on top, running your finger along the seam to smooth the edges. Place in the fridge to set for 15 minutes.
Remove the hot chocolate bombs from the mould, and dor an added sparkle you can decorate the outside with some optional edible glitter spray
To serve, heat the milk until almost boiling. Place a hot chocolate bomb into the bottom of your mug and pour the milk over the top. Leave for a minute to let the ganache melt and then stir to reveal your Hogwarts House colour!
Which Hogwarts House will you be hoping for?
