What You Need To Know About This White Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe:

Art meets an old classic favorite. 

These White Chocolate Cocoa Bombs have hard shells of white chocolate that have a packed-full center of confectionary goodness. Depending on the recipe, you may find mini marshmallows, caramel, or chocolate syrup inside of a Hot Chocolate Bomb.

A pour-over of hot milk activates the bomb and it unfolds into the best hot chocolate that you’ll ever have.

When this fad first hit social media, I was a little too excited to give it a try! If you’ve seen the videos of Hot Chocolate Bombs on TikTok or Instagram then you can understand how this craze really made my food-blogging heart happy. I made a few batches before I fell in love with the process. This is a great recipe to make your own. You’ll enjoy experimenting with different types of chocolate and fillers for the Hot Chocolate Bomb. 

I have to say that this White Cocoa Bomb variation is my favorite!

How to Make White Hot Chocolate Bombs

 Step 1. Make the Hot Chocolate Powder

Step 2. Melt the white chocolate bark according to the package directions. Add 1-2 tablespoons of melted white chocolate to each well and spread it out evenly using a spoon or offset spatula. Make sure to have a thick layer around the top edges so the chocolate bombs aren’t too brittle. 

Step 3. Place the wells in the fridge until the chocolate has completely hardened– about five minutes. 

Step 4. Carefully remove the chocolates from the mold. 

Step 5. Fill half of the molds with 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa mix and a few mini marshmallows. 

Step 6. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Then, remove it from the pan. If the pan ever becomes too cool, just reheat it for another minute. 

Step 7. Place an empty well of chocolate rim side down on the hot pan for 1-2 seconds, or you see the edges start to melt. Remove it from the pan and place it on top of a filled well to seal the two together. 

Step 8. Decorate with a chocolate drizzle and/or sprinkles. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. 

Step 9. To serve, add one hot chocolate bomb to a mug. Fill the mug with hot milk and stir. Garnish with additional marshmallows, if desired.

Tips for Making Hot Chocolate Bombs

  • If you don’t have superfine or powdered sugar, you can place granulated sugar in a blender or food processor and pulse it until it becomes a fine, powdery consistency. 
  • Powdered milk is optional in this recipe but it helps add a nice creaminess to the hot chocolate– and it’s available in most grocery stores. 
  • I highly recommend using chocolate bark (also known as candy coating or almond bark) because it melts and rehardens easily and smoothly. If you don’t have chocolate bark, you can use tempered chocolate. Melted chocolate that has not been tempered is not recommended in this recipe. 
  • I wear gloves when making the hot chocolate bombs so I don’t leave any fingerprints on the outside.
  • For boozy hot chocolate, add a splash of Peppermint Schnapps, Baileys, or Coffee Liqueur.

  1. Make the hot chocolate powder by combining all of the ingredients (sugar, cocoa powder, chopped white chocolate, and powdered milk) in a small bowl. Stir to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. Melt the white chocolate bark according to the package directions.
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of melted white chocolate to each well and spread it out evenly using a spoon or offset spatula. Make sure to have a thick layer around the top edges so the chocolate bombs aren’t too brittle.
  4. Place the wells in the fridge until the chocolate has completely hardened-- about five minutes. Carefully remove the chocolates from the mold.
  5. Fill half of the molds with 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa mix and a few mini marshmallows.
  6. Heat a nonstick pan over medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Then, remove it from the pan. If the pan ever becomes too cool, just reheat it for another minute.
  7. Place an empty well of chocolate rim side down on the hot pan for 1-2 seconds, or you see the edges start to melt. Remove it from the pan and place it on top of a filled well to seal the two together.
  8. Decorate with a chocolate drizzle and/or sprinkles. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Notes

  2. Powdered milk is optional in this recipe but highly recommended. It helps add a nice creaminess to the hot chocolate-- and it’s available in most grocery stores or online.
  3. I highly recommend using chocolate bark (also known as candy coating or almond bark) because it melts and rehardens easily and smoothly. If you don’t/can't have chocolate bark, you can use tempered white chocolate. Melted chocolate that has not been tempered is not recommended in this recipe.
  4. I wear gloves when making the hot chocolate bombs so I don’t leave any fingerprints on the outside but those are optional.
