Hot Chocolate Bombs are all the rage, but did you know that they are super simple to make? Just get some chocolate disks or melt chocolate chips, get a silicone mold (I just used my egg bites mold, but you can buy molds at the craft store or on Amazon), hot chocolate, some icing to seal your bombs with or to decorate with, and whatever you want to use to decorate.
I started by getting my supplies together. I always prefer to make sure I’m prepared.
What you’ll need:
Silicone mold — you can either use an egg bites mold or a hot chocolate bomb mold.
Good Melting chocolate wafer discs or melts or chocolate chips
Wilton Cookie Icing – You can do white or red. I found the red to be very messy, so I prefer using the white.
How to Make Hot Chocolate Bombs
I melted my white chocolate chips in my microwave, I like to melt it for 15-20 seconds at a time until it’s properly melted.
Then I took a spoon, dipped it in the chocolate and used the back of the spoon to cover each area in my silicone mold with chocolate.
I popped my mold in the freezer for 45 minutes and then added a little more chocolate to the mold to make sure it was covered.
Then I pulled the mold out of my freezer and popped my chocolate bomb halves out of the mold, using a butter knife to loosen them – honestly, this was a hard part. I’ll totally admit that my hot chocolate bombs looked a little like capsules. I may try them a different way next time!
I placed my peppermint hot chocolate mix and some star marshmallows in each of my hot chocolate bomb cups and then added another of the hot chocolate bomb cups and sealed it with some melted chocolate.
Then I drizzled white icing on the hot chocolate bombs and sprinkled crushed candy cane bits over them. They came out so cute!
Serve by putting it in a mug and pouring over hot water or hot milk and then watch to see the fun begin.

My mouth watered reading this. I’ll be making these on Christmas Eve with my boys. Was it tricky to seal the two halves together?
The Mama Maven says
No, it was pretty easy. I also saw that you can put the edges on a hot plate and then let them melt for a second or two and then seal them!
The chocolate bombs look so festive!
I am loving chocolate bombs for the holidays! I can’t wait to make these.
