Andes Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs are perfect for all of the mint chocolate chips lovers. These are full of chocolate, marshmallows and real Andes Mint chocolate.
I really hope you have joined us on the hot chocolate bomb bandwagon this year! It’s been so fun creating new looks and flavors.
Andes Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs
My favorite flavor combo of all time is mint and chocolate. Because of that, Andes Mints are one of my favorite treats! I loved adding them into this hot chocolate bomb.
Is it just me or was the first time you remember having an Andes Mint at an Olive Garden? As a kid, getting those at the end of the meal was the best part!
Ingredients You Will Need
- Melting Chocolate. You can use either almond bark or chocolate chips.
- Andes Mint chocolates. We will crush a few and keep a few whole.
- Hot Cocoa mix. Pick your favorite.
- Mini marshmallows. No hot cocoa is complete without marshmallows.
- White Chocolate. Melted to drizzle on top.
- Green food coloring. Choose a green color as close as you can get to mint green to color the white chocolate.
- Silicone molds. To form the chocolate balls.
How To Make Andes Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs
- Form the ball. Melt the chocolate and spread it inside the silicone molds. Place them in the fridge for about 15 minutes to harden.
- Fill. When the chocolate mold is ready, pop them out and fill them up with your cocoa, marshmallows and some crushed Andes Mints.
- Seal. Seal the top of the bomb to the bottom by heating the halves on a warm skillet and pressing it to the other half.
- Decorate. Melt white chocolate and dye it mint green. Drizzle the chocolate over the cocoa bomb and add pieces of an Andes Mint.
- Drink. Put the chocolate bomb in a mug and pour hot milk over it. Watch it burst open and stir until it all dissolves. Then, drink!
