Have you tried hot cocoa bombs? If you like a good cup of hot chocolate, I really believe that you will like hot chocolate bombs. Not only are they delicious to drink, but they are also FUN to make!
I really hadn’t heard anything about hot cocoa bombs until I saw them on Facebook marketplace. I, being a researcher, had to look these hot chocolate bombs up. They seem to be the new food craze of 2020. From that point on, I’ve become a little addicted to them.
- 2 Silicone Sphere Molds
- 30oz of Ghirardelli White Chocolate melting wafers
- 2 C of peppermint mocha hot cocoa mix
- 1 disposable piping bag
- 1 cookie sheet fitted with wax paper
- 2 C Mini Marshmallows
- 1 C crushed peppermint candy
- ½ C mini chocolate chips
Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny
coat on it.
Using a heat-safe bowl, pour into the bowl and place the remaining of the Ghirardelli melting wafers in the microwave for 45-second intervals. Make sure to stir the chocolate after every 45 seconds until completely melted and smooth.
Using a spoon, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the chocolate into the mold.
Carefully swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold.
Lightly shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl.
Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes.
Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away
from the hardened chocolate shell.
Carefully place the mold onto the cookie sheet.
Repeat steps with remaining molds. You should now have 8 half-sphere molds.
Scoop some of the melted chocolate into the piping bag and cut the tip
Building The Bomb
Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold.
Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows.
Sprinkle in a few of the crushed peppermint candy.
Pipe a line of the melted chocolate around the edge of the bottom shell.
Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped chocolate to harden to the top shell.
Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells.
Place the mold back onto the cookie sheet.
Drizzle chocolate over the mold
Sprinkle crushed peppermint candy and mini chocolate chips on top
Allow them to harden before enjoying!
Hot cocoa bombs are a fun way to make your hot cocoa for the night and a GREAT way to warm up on chilly night.
