How To Make Hot Chocolate Bombs

In this article, you will find two instructions for making hot chocolate bombs (with and without a silicone mold). Choose the one that suits you better.


  • 12 oz (340 g) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 6 tbsp hot cocoa mix
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • sprinkles for decorating
  • 6 cups (1 ½ l) milk (whole or 2%)


  1. To make the bombs using a mold first finely chop the semi-sweet chocolate chips or bar. Set about 4 oz (115 g) aside. Set up a double boiler and melt the chocolate in it. Stir with a silicone spatula. Note that the mixture shouldn’t get too hot to touch. Remove the bowl with chocolate from the double boiler. Stir in the rest of the chocolate until smooth. The mixture should be about body temperature.
  2. Pour 1 tablespoon of the chocolate mixture into each silicone mold and use the brush to spread it up the sides. Let it harden for 15 minutes. To make the layer more even brush the molds with some more chocolate and let it harden for 15 to 30 minutes.
  3. Fill half of the molds with 1 tablespoon hot cocoa mix, 1 heaping tablespoon mini marshmallows, and ½ teaspoon sprinkles each.
  4. Coat the edges of the rest of the molds with melted chocolate. Cover each cocoa-filled mold with an empty one. Leave at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
  5. Decorate the chocolate bombs with the rest of the tempered chocolate and some sprinkles. Remember to wear gloves when touching the chocolate to prevent fingerprints.
  6. Place each bomb into a cup of very hot milk. Stir and enjoy your delicious drink!

The Second Version

  1. To make the bombs without a silicone mold use cupcake liners. Fill each one with 1 tablespoon of tempered chocolate, spread the mixture, let it harden. Add another layer as in the first recipe and let it harden completely.
  2. Add the filling as in the first recipe. Then drizzle 1 tablespoon of tempered chocolate over the filling and use the back of a small spoon to smooth it out and enclose the bombs. Let the bombs sit for half an hour at room temperature. Decorate with the rest of the chocolate and some sprinkles.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

Hi there, I think your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
Whenever I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic site!

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on various websites
for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about Is there a way I can transfer all my
wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly

Your style is so unique compared to other people I have read stuff from.
I appreciate you for posting when you have the opportunity,
Guess I’ll just book mark this site.

Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird
when browsing from my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to fix
this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thank you!

Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my
blog shine. Please let me know where you got your theme. Many

Wonderful post but I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this topic?
I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit further.

Wow, incredible blog structure! How long have you ever been blogging for?

you made running a blog glance easy. The overall look
of your web site is wonderful, as well as the content material!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?

If you are going for most excellent contents like I do, simply
visit this site all the time for the reason that it gives feature contents, thanks

When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
Thus that’s why this paragraph is perfect. Thanks!

I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing
issues with your blog. It appears like some of the
text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?

This might be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
Many thanks
