  • 2 cups (320g) chocolate chips
  • 1 cup (100g) hot chocolate mix
  • 4 tablespoons crushed peppermint candies
  • 1 cup (45g) mini marshmallows
  • 2 tablespoons white chocolate melted
  • garnish: crushed candies, sprinkles, and additional melted chocolate


  • Melt the chocolate, then place about 2 tablespoons into each mold. Using a spoon or pastry brush, distribute the chocolate so it coats the inside of each mold evenly.
  • Place in the freezer for 5 minutes, and then add a second coat of chocolate to each mold. Place back into the freezer for another 5 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the chocolate from the molds.
  • Then, using a warm pan, place 4 of the halves one by one onto the pan to even out the edges.
  • Fill each of these half circles with 2-3 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix. Add in a pinch of peppermint candies and a small handful of marshmallows.
  • Take an empty half circle and even out the edges on the warm pan. Immediately place that half on top of one of the filled halves. Hold and press for 10 seconds to help the chocolate stick. Repeat this profess with the remaining three.
  • Decorate your formed bombs with drizzled melted white chocolate, sprinkles, and crushed candy as desired.
  • When you are ready to use your hot chocolate bomb, place it in a mug and pour one cup of warm milk on top.


Recipe Tips

  • Melt the chocolate slowly using a double boiler or in 15-second increments in the microwave.
  • Check the molded chocolate for thin spots, especially around the mold’s edges, and re-coat with more chocolate if needed.
  • When assembling, wear food-safe gloves and dip your fingers into ice water as needed to avoid melting the chocolate or leaving fingerprints.
  • Don’t forget to decorate! Drizzle the bombs with melted white (or colored chocolate to match different seasons and holiday) and top with crushed candy, sprinkles, or cookie crumbles.
