Happy Wednesday everyone! We are talking White Chocolate Bombs today with milk chocolate, mini marshmallows, and candy canes! These chocolate bombs can be made with white chocolate, milk or dark chocolate and filled with whatever ingredients you like. I used hot chocolate from Puppy Paws Coffee Company (use code 2labs at checkout and get 10% off your order) and filled them with marshmallows and some with candy cane broken into pieces.
These are incredibly easy to make, can be used in a hot chocolate charcuterie board, or given as gifts. Just plop into a cup of warm milk and let them burst open to create a deliciously, chocolatey, hot cup of deliciousness! (See my video below)
I also want to apologize as I sent out the same blog twice this week. Honestly, I got mixed up on my days with the Christmas holiday and my schedule. I posted a few blogs all in one email to give you an option for more content and to pick and choose what you wanted to read. These posts were older posts that pertain to the holidays and with my new readers, I wanted to make sure they were able to enjoy these as well.
There are a few things to consider when making these bombs:
1. Make sure you have tempered your white chocolate by heating the chocolate up in 30 second increments until it is completely melted. Stir with a spoon until combined and creamy. I put my white chocolate morsels in a small bowl and used my microwave but you can also heat the chocolate up on the stove using a pan with water in it. Lay a bowl in the water, pour your hot chocolate, and let it melt. Remove before it burns.
2. When covering the mold with chocolate, make sure you take the chocolate all the way to the top of the mold and not like I did (see picture) as it will leave gaps in your chocolate when you try to seal the top and bottom together.
3. Let sit until solid and remove from mold
4. Fill with your favorite ingredients
5. To seal the chocolate together, heat up a clean plate in the microwave, turn one side of the bomb upside down and rub onto plate heating up the chocolate around the lid and then use the other half to seal together. Use your finger or a damp cloth to wipe up the excess chocolate.
6. I used plastic mold that I bought in Lititz, PA but you can find them on Amazon as well as Walmart, JoAnn Fabrics. Having only done this once, the plastic worked fine. If I decided to make these more often, I will invest in the rubber molds as they seem easier to use from the YouTube videos I have been watching.
Jake and Maggie waiting for their chocolate bomb
Chocolate bombs will make a dog sick. I gave them their dental chews from Get Naked for waiting so patiently!
I first cleaned my molds with water and a clean towel. Then I wiped each round mold with a thin layer of coconut oil for easy removal and prevent chocolate from sticking.
I used two heaping spoonfuls of hot chocolate mix but could have used more. I personally would fill my bottom mold to the top the next time.
I chose to keep the outside of the chocolate bomb more on the plain side but you can get creative with your decorations! Drizzle more chocolate over the bomb and add sprinkles if you like.
I prefer my cup of milk to be piping hot instead of warm and I keep stirring to make sure the hot chocolate doesn’t land at the bottom.
Great resources for hot chocolate recipes and how to’s:
I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and got everything you asked for. I know we did. Jake and Maggie got many toys and were so tired at the end the night from opening up gifts. I can’t believe New Year’s Eve is this Friday! Wow the time has flown! Let’s make 2022 a great one. Stay tuned for a New Year’s Eve tablescape this week. I’m just waiting on Amazon to deliver the goods for my table :-).

White Hot Chocolate Bomb
- chocolate bomb molds
- 2 tbsp hot chocolate mix I used Puppy Paws Coffee Co
- 1 handful marshmallows I sprinkled the mini marshmallows in
- 2 candy canes broken into pieces Or you can leave these out and add to side of glass for stirring
- 1 bag white chocolate morsels Use a good quality white chocolate
- Melt white chocolate in microwave for 30 second increments until creamy and can be stirred
- Clean molds and line with coconut oil. I used a Scott towel and made sure there were no clumps of coconut oil
- Using a spoon, fill molds half way and push chocolate up making sure it lines the mold completely
- Leave alone until chocolate sets and hardens. You can also speed the process up by putting into the refrigerator
- Once the chocolate has set, remove molds
- Fill bottom mold with your favorite hot chocolate mix and ingredients
- Take top mold and rub ring on a warm plate to melt the chocolate slightly so it can be sealed with bottom mold
- Wipe up any extra chocolate and let sit
- Repeat until all molds are filled
- Heat up a cup of milk (I used whole milk) and add chocolate bomb to the milk. Watch it come apart, bubble up, and stir
