So this recipe is a trend that I saw on YouTube and it is really cool and yummy and perfect for a cold winter night when all you want to do is cuddle up on the couch and have this hot, hot cocoa right in front of you!


Hot Cocoa Bombs

  • 1 and 1/2 cups of dark chocolate chunks, 2 and 1/2 cups of dark chocolate chips, or 1 and 1/2 bars of dark chocolate

  • a half sphere, 2 part mold (I found mine at Michael’s)

  • hot cocoa mix

  • small paint brush

  • mini marshmallows

  • 8 cups of steamed milk

  • gloves

  • cupcake liners

  • a small circle cookie cutter, optional

  • 1 cup of white chocolate, melted for decoration, optional



Melt your chocolate in a double boiler, microwave, or a melting pot until the chocolate is 100 percent smooth and there are no clumps of chocolate.


Once smooth, pour 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate into the mold and, using the paint brush, paint the chocolate up the sides of the mold until the whole mold is covered with a thin coat of chocolate. Repeat with the rest of the molds. Once all the molds are covered in a thin coat of chocolate, put in the fridge for a 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove From fridge and put another thin coat of chocolate in the molds. Once all the molds have another coat of chocolate, put in fridge for another 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, take out, and put in the freezer from 30 minutes to 1 hour until the chocolate shell has lifted out of the mold and you can easily take the shell out of the mold.


Once ready, take the shells out carefully by using gloves and place on a cutting board. Once all are out, take one and put on the small cookie cutter or in a cupcake liner.


Fill the shell with 2 tablespoons of the hot cocoa mix and 1/4 cup of mini marshmallows. Repeat with 3 more shells.


Take a medium-size pan and heat it on medium high heat for 1 minute. Remove pan off of the heat and wrap the pan in a towel in order for it to stay hot. Then, one by one, take one of the empty shells and place it while using glove in the hot pan for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds remove shell from the pan and place it on top of one of the shells that are filled. Secure it on, but it does not have to be completely closed. Then repeat that step with the remaining empty shells.


Once all the shells are on, take the remaining melted chocolate and if you are using a melting pot you can skip this part. If you used a double boiler or the microwave, take the melted chocolate and put it in the microwave for 15 seconds until you can easily mix it. Then take a piping/small ziplock bag and pour the remains of the hot melted chocolate. Cut a very small tip and pipe all the way around the bomb where the 2 shells meet. Then, using a glove, gently press the chocolate into the shell to make the hot cocoa bomb smooth and with no gaps.


To decorate, drizzle the melted white chocolate over the top of the hot cocoa bomb.


To make the hot cocoa, heat the milk in a pot over medium-high until the milk has steamed / boiled. Then take a mug or heat-safe glass and drop one of the hot cocoa bombs in the glass. Next, pour the milk over the bomb and it should exploded. If it has exploded, you will see the marshmallows float to the top. Give it a good mix before you devour. Enjoy !!!
