Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 45 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

Servings: About 6


  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons hot chocolate mix
  • hot chocolate bomb mold 
  • optional fillings: mini marshmallows, sprinkles, crushed candy bars, toffee bits, cinnamon, crushed peppermint candies, etc.

Here's how to make them: 

  1. Melt the chocolate either in the microwave (microwave for 30 seconds, stop to stir with a silicone spatula, then microwave again for 30 seconds and repeat until chocolate is melted) or in a double boiler. 
  2. Spoon the melted chocolate into the molds. Cover the entire inside of the molds with chocolate. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to set. 
  3. Carefully (very carefully!) remove the chocolate from the molds. 
  4. Pour 1 tablespoon of hot chocolate mix into each half of the chocolate molds. Fill them about three-quarters full. Add desired fillings, if using. 
  5. Heat a plate in the microwave. Put the rim of one half of an empty chocolate mold on the plate to melt the edge. This happens very quickly. Remove and attach to a filled half to complete the chocolate bomb. Refrigerate again to set. 
  6. If desired, decorate the outside of the chocolate bombs with sprinkles or chocolate piping. 
  7. To serve, drop the hot chocolate bomb into a mug of hot milk. Then watch the magic happen!
