Hot cocoa bombs are now a chilly day favorite. This tempting treat is a chocolate ball filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. When the bombs are met with heated milk or water the magic happens. Below I share the steps on how to make the cocoa bombs but grab a kit to keep things simple. But I do recommend picking up additional supplies just in case the kit materials are not enough.
Hot cocoa bombs do feel like magic wrapped in chocolate. Even though the process seems magical, it is just the chocolate ball melting when touched by the hot liquid. Once the outside melts, pops out the goodies like the cocoa mix and marshmallows.
Making hot chocolate bombs is easy once you get the hang of the steps. I used Target’s Hot Drink Bomb Kit to learn the process. With that being said, I highly recommend using the kit because it comes with the essentials such as a silicon mold and chocolate flavored wafers. The steps for hot cocoa are as follows: melt the wafters, scoop the melted wafters in the mold, next, a quick freeze, then fill and seal. Afterward, decorate the bombs with sprinkles or more melted wafers.
Lastly, have patience with sealing the hot cocoa bombs, and remember any noticeable mistakes with dealing with the bombs are fixable more with decorations.
When deciding between milk or water, it is totally up to you depending on your dietary needs or what is available. I use non-dairy milk such as macadamia milk or almond milk. Undoubtedly, hot cocoa is more satisfying with milk since it is creamier.
However, many hot chocolate mixes already have powdered milk in them, so you can get away with using hot water.
Even though the ingredients are non-perishable, I recommend using the cocoa bomb within two weeks for optimal freshness. As you may know, marshmallows feel like concrete when exposed to air for too long. Store bombs in an air tight container.
Yes, and yes! Hot chocolate bombs are an absolute favorite, so instead of going with hot cocoa kits in a jar or cookies, switch it up with hot cocoa bombs!
Last but not least, be sure you share this recipe with friends and family. Even go ahead and pin it on Pinterest.
