When making hot chocolate bombs or these super creamy white chocolate cocoa bombs, I get a ton of questions. I published this awesome DIY hot chocolate cocoa bomb over a year ago and its making its rounds again. I am so happy that all of you are making this awesome food recipe and getting some enjoyment in your home.
Chocolate can be hard to work with for some and take a bit of patience. Its easy to warm up chocolate too fast or too little and be left with gunk. I hope answering these cocoa bomb questions in one place is an easy and helpful summary for those searching.

How to make Hot Chocolate Bombs
First things first – how do you make a hot chocolate cocoa bomb? Overall its an easy process. You simply melt your chocolate, place in mold, freeze the mold, peel the chocolate, add marshmallows and then seal the top and bottom of the chocolate together. If you need very specific instructions, please watch this video or head to the full on articles that I have written.
What mold do you need for Hot Chocolate Bombs?
The best mold I have found for sizing is a silicone mold that has 15 semi-circles. This makes 7 hot chocolate cocoa bombs with one extra side that you can discard or use as a back up.
These molds are not HUGE where you can stuff hoards of large marshmallows or peppermint pieces but they fit in most common mugs.
I recommend that you get semi-circle silicon molds that are a variety of sizes so you can make your chocolate bombs in several ways and for all cups. Once you start making them, you will love the results and I typically drop all mine in a few days.
Here is the silicone mold I recommend:
If you prefer to purchase in person, I got mine at Hobby Lobby in the baking section.
What kind of Marshmallows are Used?
The most common marshmallows used for hot chocolate bombs are mini marshmallows or dehydrated marshmallows.
How to Seal a Hot Chocolate Bomb
There are two ways to seal half chocolate spears.
- Heat a low pan on the stove, put down your sphere for a second or two, which lightly melts the edges. Then press into the other side after filling.
- Use melted and warm chocolate around the two sides to seal and then place in freezer to set. If you do this method, you can add sprinkles or gold dust around the middle edges as well.
Where to Buy Hot Chocolate Bombs
If you prefer to purchase your hot chocolate bomb, last year we found the Wondershop brand at Target! As they have become popular again, they are harder to find.
