Tips for Making Hot Cocoa Bombs at Home

When it comes to making hot cocoa bombs at home we have some tricks for you that will save your sanity when it comes to creating your hot chocolate bombs.

What Kind of Chocolate Can You Use to Make Hot Cocoa Bombs?

While you can use chocolate chips or melting chocolates to create a hot cocoa bomb, we personally suggest using melting chocolates.

Melting chocolates are created for candy making and can handle the melting and reshaping process better than chocolate chips can. Chocolate chips on the other hand can be more prone to seize up. This is not to say that you cannot overheat melting chocolates and run into issues with them seizing up, it is just that it is less likely to happen when using melting chocolates.

What Should I Look For Before Buying a Hot Cocoa Bomb Mold?

To create these M&M hot cocoa bombs we used a silicone mold. When shopping for a silicone mold make sure that you choose one that is food grade quality, and that it is safe to use with high and low temperatures (such as the microwave or freezer).

How Many Marshmallows Should You Put Into Your Hot Cocoa Bombs?

There is never such a thing as too many marshmallows in my book. The same goes for the M&M’s. When it comes to filling your hot cocoa bombs stuff as much as you can into them. It is so much fun watching the goodies inside explode into your cup of hot cocoa!

What if I Want to Add Different Ingredients?

You totally can! Just keep in mind when you are adding ingredients to your hot cocoa bombs that you do plan on drinking this. Make sure your ingredients will melt into the hot milk so you don’t end up choking.
