Making hot cocoa bombs is so much easier than you might think! All you need is some chocolate, cocoa mix, and a few extras to add in! It’s a bit of a process but I think of things like this as “food crafts” because they’re fun to make and then you get to eat them.

S’mores hot chocolate are the perfect addition to a sweet gift basket for teachers, friends, or family paired with a jar of Homemade Hot Cocoa Mix, some Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies and Homemade Almond Biscotti, and a couple enamel mugs

Recipe FAQs

Do I need special equipment to make hot chocolate bombs?

Yes. You will need some kind of mold. I used these stainless steel medium molds but silicone molds for hot chocolate bombs or cake pops will also work. Make sure the molds are sterile if you have used them for non-food crafts. 

What kind of chocolate is the best for making hot chocolate bombs?

Melting chocolate or chocolate wafers are best for this recipe. I don’t recommend using chocolate or brown almond bark for this recipe because it’s not the same as true chocolate. 

How do I store hot chocolate bombs until use?

Wrap each hot chocolate bomb in foil and store in the cool, dark place for up to one to two months.

How do I use a hot chocolate bomb?

Place one in a large mug and pour 2 cups of hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy.

Expert Tips

  • Be sure to melt your melting chocolate according to package directions. Using a double-boiler on the stove will prevent scorching the chocolate.
  • Melting chocolate is recommended because it has already been tempered (heated and cooled). When you heat it again, the chocolate doesn’t bloom (turn white) like untempered chocolate might.
  • Don’t skip rubbing the hardened chocolate on a warm plate because it’s what gives the two chocolate halves a smooth edge to be joined together.

  • Melt the melting chocolate per the directions on the package.
  • Place 1 tablespoon melted candy melt into one half of a bomb mold and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even. Repeat with 12 bomb mold halves.
  • Place the chocolate filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove molds from the freezer and gently tap the sides of the mold, pressing on one side of the chocolate to make the chocolate slid out of the mold.
  • Fill 6 of the molds with 2 tablespoons hot cocoa mix, 1 tablespoon crushed graham cracker, and 6-8 mini marshmallows.
  • Heat a plate or a flat-bottom bowl in the microwave until the surface of the plate is warm to the touch.
  • Press one of the empty chocolate bomb halves open-side-down onto the flat portion of the warm plate for about 10 seconds. This will gently melt the rim of the chocolate cup.
  • Immediately press this warmed edge chocolate cup to the top of one of the filled cups. This will join the two halves of the hot cocoa bomb. If desired, pipe on more of the chocolate melts to help shore-up that seam.
  • Using a piping bag or a fork, drizzle the remaining candy melts over the assembled hot cocoa bombs then immediately follow by adding 3-4 marshmallows on top and sprinkling additional crushed graham over them.
  • If desired, using a small lighter, toast the marshmallows on top.
  • Place the hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes to get them to set, then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
  • To use the hot cocoa bombs, place them in a mug and pour 2 cups hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy!


  • You will need bath bomb molds, hot chocolate bomb molds or cake pop molds. If using bath bomb molds, I found it best to hold them steady in a cupcake tin. I used these stainless steel molds but silicone molds will also work. 
  • You can find melting chocolate sold in big chunks during the holidays or you can look for melting chocolate near the chocolate chips. 
  • Ghirardelli makes a good melting chocolate that comes in bags of both dark and milk chocolate. You can find it year-round in your local grocery store near the chocolate chips.
  • To store the hot chocolate bombs, wrap each in a foil and store in a cool dark place for up to one to two months.
