Valentine Hot Cocoa Bombs

Hot cocoa bombs are all the rage right now & honestly they really easier than you’d think to make them. There are so many fun ways to customize the hot cocoa bombs for the different holidays or various themes. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we thought it would be fun to share a different twist of the traditional hot cocoa bomb with these fun Valentine hot chocolate bombs.

These are such a kid-friendly recipe to try – we use the method of melting the chocolate or candy melts in the microwave,  so it’s something that older kids can do (or just have a parent take it in/out of the microwave if it’s too hot for younger kids) but they be stirring the chocolate & then pour it into the molds. Kids love to be creative & come up with all sorts of fun ideas to try inside the hot cocoa bombs, too! And put their own spin on a fun decoration for the outside too as they use the sprinkles & icing to decorate!

Once you have tried out making a few hot cocoa bombs, you may want to try your hand at making some of these for friends or neighbors to give as a gift for Valentine’s Day! I heard of a fun idea of doing a neighborhood swap for Valentine’s Day – you can leave goodies on the front porch of your neighbors to surprise them. These are so fun with the cold weather to have a treat to warm you up & enjoy the chocolatey goodness for Valentine’s Day!

Make sure to check out our hot chocolate bombs with white chocolate + caramel, too, for another fun variation to try for a creamy drink!

Ingredients:

Ingredients for Valentine Hot Cocoa Bombs

  • 12 oz bag of white candy melts (you can find these at the grocery store, Walmart, Target, etc in the baking aisle)
  • 1 tbsp hot chocolate mix per bomb (any hot chocolate mix will do – just use your favorite kind)
  • Mini marshmallows
  • White icing  (we used Betty Crocker pre-made cookie icing, but you can use any that you prefer or make yourself)
  • Valentine’s Heart Sprinkles (you can buy these at Walmart, Hobby Lobby, Michaels’, etc)
  • 6 Sphere Silicone molds

Directions how to make hot cocoa bombs:

Pour candy melts into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds or until melts have fully melted.

Filling the molds for hot chocolate bombs

Spread the candy melts up the sides of the mold until every bit of the mold is covered.

Let the molds sit for about 5 minutes & re-spread any of the candy melts that sank to the bottom of the molds.

Place the molds in the refrigerator for about 30 – 45 minutes.

Once set, carefully remove the candy melt spheres from the mold.

Filling the inside of hot chocolate bombs

Fill the half of the spheres with the hot cocoa mix, sprinkles & marshmallows.

Place a glass plate in the microwave for one minute.

Remove the plate & immediately place each chocolate sphere on the hot plate to heat the edges.

Place each heated sphere on each filled sphere. You can use the tip of your finger to smooth the melted candy around the seam.

Take the icing & draw lines back & forth on the top of your sphere.

Place the hearts on the hot chocolate bomb using the icing as glue.
