  • Chocolate melting wafers– You will need the Ghirardelli white melting wafers.
  • Hot cocoa mix– You will need the milk hot cocoa.
  • Orange and Chocolate icing– These will be used to decorate.
  • Marshmallows– These will need to be mini so they fit inside the cocoa sphere.

How to Make a Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs

Clean the inside of the molds using a paper towel or kitchen towel. This will let the spheres have a shiny coat.

Place into a heat-safe bowl and add the rest of the melting wafers and melt in the microwave in 45-second intervals. Make sure to mix after each interval until smooth and combined.

Start adding the chocolate into the mold using a spoon.

Gently swirl the chocolate to fully coat the inside.

Put the molds in the fridge for 5-10 minutes.

Take out and begin to remove the silicone mold gently.

Gently put the molds onto a cookie sheet. Repeat with the rest of the molds.

Add some chocolate into a piping bag and place it aside.

Now that you have half-spheres, gently melt the open side of the molds on a pan to create a smooth edge.

Put back onto the sheet and allow to harder.

Building the chocolate bombs:

Add 1 tbsp of the cocoa mix into the bottom mold.

Cocoa mix in 1 half of the sphere.

Add a few mini marshmallows inside.

Marshmallows on top of the cocoa mix.

Use the chocolate in the piping bag to add a ling of chocolate around the edge of the mold.

Place the top shell on top and carefully hold the top for 30-seconds to allow the chocolate to harden.

Gently lift the shell up and inspect if there are any openings.

Put back onto the cutting board and put the orange icing into a piping bag.

Add some chocolate icing into the second bag and cut the tips off both.

Then, decorate the snowman however you want.

What Should I Put Inside Hot Chocolate Bombs?

For this Hot Chocolate bomb, you will be putting marshmallows, chocolate chips, and the mix. You can add anything else, possible caramel to add inside. Either way, the best thing to do is try it out first before adding.

Do Hot Cocoa Bombs Need Refrigeration?

This Cocoa Bomb recipe is probably best placed in the fridge. This will help it to maintain its shape. The best way to maintain its shape is to keep it cold, this recipe may melt if not properly stored at the right temperature.

Servings 10


  • 2 disposable piping bag
  • 1 cookie sheet fitted with wax paper


  • 1 - 30 oz Ghirardelli white chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 C milk hot cocoa mix
  • 1 tube orange icing
  • 1 tube chocolate icing
  • 2 C Mini Marshmallows


  • Cut the silicone molds so that each sphere mold is by itself as shown in the IP image. I did this because I felt it was easier to control the mold when working with the melted chocolate
  • Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny coat on it
  • Using a heat-safe bowl, pour into the bowl and place the remaining of the Ghirardelli melting wafers in the microwave for 45-second intervals. Make sure to stir the chocolate after every 45 seconds until completely melted and smooth
  • Using a spoon, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the chocolate into the mold
  • Carefully swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold
  • Lightly shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl
  • Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes
  • Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened chocolate shell
  • Carefully place the mold onto the cookie sheet
  • Repeat steps with remaining molds
  • You should now have 8 half-sphere molds
  • Scoop some of the melted chocolate into the piping bag and cut the tip

Building the cocoa bomb :

  • Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold
  • Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows
  • Pipe a line of the melted chocolate around the edge of the bottom shell
  • Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped chocolate to harden to the top shell
  • Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells
  • Place the mold back onto the cutting board
  • Scoop some orange icing into one piping bag
  • Scoop some chocolate icing into the second piping bag
  • Cut the tips off both piping bags and decorate your snowman cocoa bomb
