How to Make Hot Chocolate Bombs

No matter where you are in the country, winter brings cooler weather and cooler temperatures mean it’s the perfect time to curl up with a nice cup of hot chocolate. After all, chocolate is the ultimate comfort food!

Now, you can opt for powdered mixes in a pinch, but when you want to really enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, there’s no better way than with a hot chocolate bomb.

Chocolate bombs are all the rage, and for good reason – they create the best cup of hot chocolate you’ll ever taste! But what are they? They’re milk or dark chocolate balls that contain cocoa mix and mini marshmallows inside. You then put them in your favorite mug, pour hot milk over them and as the chocolate melts, the marshmallows are released and voila! A delicious mug of hot chocolate!

Your local gourmet chocolate shop has probably been busy making (and selling out of) these trendy treats, and we sell one that’s ready-to-use (and yes, it keeps selling out). But if you’re handy in the kitchen and want to whip up a batch of bombs yourself, we’re here to help with this simple recipe.

First off, you’re going to need a few ingredients:

  • The most important is the chocolate! We recommend milk chocolate melting wafers, which are designed to melt quickly.
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Hot chocolate mix
  • Round silicone baking mold

To make your bombs:

  1. Melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl in 15-second intervals, stirring in between until it’s smooth.
  2. Use a round silicone baking mold to form the bomb. Drop about a teaspoon of chocolate into the cavity of the mold and cover the sides completely to make the first half of the bomb’s shell.
  3. On a parchment lined baking sheet, invert the baking mold (chocolate side up) and pop in the freezer for a few minutes to set.
  4. Remove from the freezer and gently press on the mold to release the bomb.
  5. Fill half of the bombs with a tablespoon of hot cocoa mix and 2 tablespoons of mini marshmallows.
  6. Warm a plate of bowl of water in the microwave. Take an empty bomb half and dip the edge into this water to slightly melt the chocolate and place it on a full half bomb and seal the two pieces together.
  7. Freeze for about 30 minutes to set, then enjoy!
