Hot chocolate bombs are delightful treats that create a fun and interactive way to make hot chocolate. When you pour hot milk or water over them, they burst open, releasing marshmallows and cocoa mix to create a delicious and creamy hot chocolate. Here’s an easy recipe to make your own hot chocolate bombs:

What Are Hot Chocolate Bombs?

Hot chocolate bombs are wonderful sweets that have a melting shell on top of the richness of hot cocoa. These bomb-shaped sweets often have a hollow chocolate shell inside of which are placed a variety of fillings, including marshmallows, sprinkles, and cocoa powder. The shell dissolves when hot milk is added to them, exposing a rich and creamy hot chocolate interior.


  • 1 cup chocolate chips (milk, dark or white)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Optional add-ins (e.g., peppermint extract, cinnamon, sprinkles, etc.)


  1. Until the chocolate is completely melted, microwave the chocolate chips in 30-second intervals while stirring in between.
  2. Spread the melted chocolate evenly within a silicone mold, covering the edges and the bottom with a tiny spoon or pastry brush. Continue until you have six to eight half spheres.
  3. For 10 to 15 minutes, or when the chocolate has completely solidified, place the chocolate mold in the refrigerator.
  4. Carefully remove the half spheres from the mold once the chocolate has dried and become firm.
  5. The cocoa powder and powdered sugar should be combined in a separate bowl.
  6. Place a tablespoon of the cocoa-sugar mixture in one side of the chocolate sphere and top with a tiny handful of micro marshmallows and any additional ingredients you like to make the hot chocolate bombs.
  7. Place the empty half of the chocolate sphere on the microwave-melted plate to slightly melt the rim of the chocolate after briefly heating the dish in the microwave. This will assist in fusing the two pieces together.
  8. To make a full sphere, stack the empty half of the sphere on top of the filled half and gently push the two halves together.
  9. Add more melted chocolate, sprinkles, or other toppings on the hot chocolate bomb’s exterior if you choose.

To enjoy, put the hot chocolate bomb in a mug, top with hot milk, and watch as it melts and releases the marshmallows and hot cocoa mix within.
