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 unicorn hot cocoa bombs we used this silicone mold that we found on Amazon. When it comes to purchasing a silicone mold you need to be mindful of its temperature ratings and if buying in store run a pinch test prior to purchase to make sure that it truly is silicone.
  • Not all silicone is manufactured equally. While all levels of melted chocolate should be ok for any style of silicone mold, you can sometimes run into issues if you plan on freezing your hot cocoa bombs in order to set the candy melts.
  • Typically a silicone mold can withstand hot and cold temperatures, however, you do need to make sure that the silicone mold you are using can handle that low of a temperature before freezing so that you do not damage your mold.
  • We also suggest running a pinch test to make sure that you are getting a pure silicone mold and not one that has had another material added to lower the costs. To do this simply pinch and twist a section of the silicone. If it stays the same color your mold is good to go – if it has a whiteness to it, then the mold has a filler in it and is not pure silicone. Even though a pure silicone mold may be more expensive, it is a better investment as they will last longer and are more versatile in use.

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

  • There is never such a thing as too many marshmallows in my book. When it comes to filling your hot cocoa bombs stuff as much as you can into them. It is so much fun watching the marshmallows 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.
