Once you add these Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs to your cup of hot chocolate, lives are going to be changed. For the better. There’s nothing quite like the taste and flavor that these fun chocolate bombs add. They’re literally one of the biggest sweet treats of the holiday season – and for good reason! Not only are they super simple to make but they’re super delicious and fun to eat, too.

The great part about these Mint Chocolate Bombs is that you just need a few simple ingredients to get started. And once you make them once, you’re going to be making them over and over again. These are great for a lazy weekend at home but they’re also a really cool homemade gift idea as well.

If you’re ready for a chocolate treat, you’re not going to want to miss out on these!

The truth is, I’m a bit addicted to these delicious hot chocolate bombs. They’re just really, really fun to make and they add a whole other layer of sweetness to your cup of hot chocolate. The kids tend to really like the mint flavor that is offered in these, and I have to agree.

I was also pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed using dark chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate but you can ultimately use either one and still have any awesome flavor and taste. Make certain to be patient to let them set up all the way. It’s worth it!

Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs

Makes 6 bombs
Prep time: 30 minutes
Setting time: 4 hours

Ingredients:

  • 1 12-ounce package dark chocolate chips
  • 1 packet instant cocoa mix
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/3 cup mint baking chips (Andes mint chips)
  • 6 cups hot milk to make the bombs
  • Round silicone mold

Instructions:


1.Place the dark chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the chocolate chips are fully melted.

2. Put a spoonful of melted chocolate inside one cup on the silicone mold and use the back of the spoon to spread the chocolate up the sides of the mold. Continue this process until all the molds are coated.

3. Set the remaining chocolate aside for sealing and decorating the bombs.

4. Allow the chocolate to set completely, around 2 to 3 hours. You can speed up the process by placing the chocolate in the refrigerator.

5. When the chocolate is set, remove each of the chocolate pieces from the mold. Add a small amount of instant hot cocoa mix to half the pieces and top the hot cocoa mix with mint baking chips and marshmallows.

6. Reheat the chocolate in 15-second intervals until melted. Pick up an empty chocolate piece and dip the edges into the melted chocolate. Carefully place it on top of a filled piece and lightly press it into place. Use your finger to smooth melted chocolate around the seam. Continue until all the chocolate bombs are sealed.

7. Melt the white chocolate chips in 15-second intervals until melted, then place the remaining chocolate in a piping bag. Drizzle the chocolate over the top of the bombs and decorate with remaining mint pieces.

8. Allow the chocolate decorations to set before using, around 1 hour.

9. To make the hot chocolate bombs, place the bomb in the bottom of a mug. Pour one cup of hot milk over the top of the bomb to melt the chocolate. When the chocolate is completely melted, stir to combine.

  1. I’ve been seeing these cocoa bombs all over and decided I’d try my hand at making them too! I had to hunt hard for the molds–clearly lots of people are making them! I haven’t gotten around to making mine yet, so I’m happy to see your tutorial! I bought the Andes Candies little bars, and plan to chop them up!
