Hot Chocolate Bombs have taken over the holiday season. These are a fun way to make hot chocolate with a little twist.

Supplies and Ingredients:

  • Silicon sphere mold (I used a cake pop mold) 
  • Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • Hot chocolate powder mix
  • Hot water or milk
  • Optional: Candy canes and marshmallows


  1. Melt chocolate wafers in 15-20 second increments until fully melted and smooth. Stir after each time you microwave the chocolate.
  2. Pour melted chocolate into silicone molds and make sure they are fully coated. Gently tap out excess chocolate and cool. (I stuck mine in the freezer for 20 minutes.)
  3. Gently remove chocolate from the molds and fill half of them with hot chocolate mix, crushed candy canes, and marshmallows.
  4. Place two of the half spheres together by “gluing” them together with melted chocolate.
  5. Lastly, garnish them (I rolled them in crushed candy cane) and then place them into hot water or milk. For the cake pop size, I found two or three hot chocolate bombs work best. 
  6. Enjoy!
