WHITE CHOCOLATE HOT COCOA BOMBS

I admit after seeing all of the holiday hot cocoa bombs I did have some myself over Christmas but decided I didn’t want to do one for that holiday and I wanted it to be a bit different. So just in time for Valentine’s Day I decided to do these donut-shaped white chocolate cocoa bombs. We used a 4-inch donut mold like this one that you can find on Amazon and you can see below.

These hot cocoa bombs are so easy to make and you can do so many varieties.  If you’d like to do some heart-shaped hot cocoa bombs you can get a mold like the one below on Amazon

No matter what shape silicone mold you use just make sure you have enough room to place the marshmallows and cocoa mix.

What can you put inside white chocolate hot cocoa bombs?

Whatever you like that will melt or mix nicely with the hot cocoa. You can use your favorite store-bought hot cocoa, mini marshmallows are always popular. Colored mini marshmallows which will also add color to your hot cocoa. Keep in mind the white chocolate itself will also add sweetness and flavor to your hot cocoa.

Instead of hot cocoa powder you could put in different chocolate chips or pieces, milk chocolate, dark chocolate etc.. Just keep in mind that the milk needs to be hot enough to melt the chocolate.

How do you make these white chocolate hot cocoa bombs?

  1. Melt the white chocolate chips
  2. Pour the melted chocolate into the molds and scoop the melted chocolate up the sides. When you are scooping, make sure that you get the chocolate up the sides in the middle of the mold as well.
  3. Place molds into the fridge for freezer for 10 minutes and then remove from molds. When you remove them, make sure that you are gentle as these molds tend to be a bit finicky as you are removing the chocolate.
  4. Even out the sides of the chocolate donuts on a warm plate or a warm frying pan. Make sure to keep an eye on them so they are not melting.
  5. Place the hot chocolate mix and mini marshmallows into the chocolate donuts.
  6. Warm the other side of the donuts. Drizzle with white chocolate and top with the sprinkles.
  7. Place in the fridge to set the molds. When you are ready to use place the chocolate donut and pour hot milk into the cup and enjoy!
