Recipe For Halloween Hot Chocolate Bombs

Step 1. Melt Chocolate

Start by placing the chocolate melts in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat at 30-second intervals and stir until melted.

It’s best to slowly melt the chocolate so it doesn’t overcook. It took about three 30-second intervals for them to melt.

I found these meltables at the craft store and LOVED how they worked.

They are in a pouch so you can squeeze the chocolate into the mold. It was so easy!

Step 2. Add Melted Chocolate To Silicone Mold

Paint the melted chocolate into your silicone molds. You will need two coats. 

You can use a plastic spoon or a food brush.

Step 3. Let Harden

Let the chocolate sit at room temperature until the chocolate molds harden.

Step 4. Remove The Chocolate Bombs

Remove the chocolate spheres from the mold and place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

Step 5. Fill The Molds

Fill the chocolate about 3/4 of the way with your favorite hot chocolate mix and marshmallows.

Step 6. Seal Two Pieces of Chocolate

Place an empty plate in the microwave and warm it up for about 30-45 seconds.

Take one of the cocoa bombs and press it onto the warm plate until it is slightly melted.

This will create a chocolate “glue” to seal the chocolate bombs.

Step 7. Decorate The Hot Cocoa Bombs

Decorate your cocoa bombs with extra melted chocolate and add sprinkles and a pair of monster eyes to each bomb.

Be sure to use melted chocolate to cover the seams as well.

Now all that’s left is to let the cocoa bombs sit in the refrigerator to harden. Look at how cute they are:

Hot Cocoa Bombs FAQ’s

Where do you find white candy melts?

You can find candy melts at most grocery stores, craft stores, or online.

The candy coating that I used here is from Michaels craft store.

Where do you find candy eyes?

Check out the baking section at craft stores where the sprinkles and birthday candles are.

In the grocery store, look for them in the baking section where the frosting is located.

If you can’t find candy eyes, you can use mini white chocolate chips.

How do you avoid fingerprints on hot cocoa bombs?

Be sure to wear disposable gloves when making the hot cocoa bombs to avoid fingerprints.

I didn’t wear them when making these and do have some prints. I’m sure my little nieces won’t care!

How Do You Use Hot Chocolate Bombs?

Hot cocoa bombs are extremely popular and can be made in different flavors and color combinations.

Simply place a hot cocoa bomb inside a mug. Pour hot milk or hot water (milk is preferred) over the top to melt the hot cocoa bomb.

As the candy coating melts, the cocoa powder and marshmallows inside are revealed. Stir and enjoy!

How Do You Store Hot Cocoa Bombs?

Store chocolate bombs in an airtight container. Keep refrigerated. They’ll stay fresh for up to 1 week.
