Materials: 

To make a Hot Chocolate Bomb, you’ll need the following basic tools and ingredients.  The numbers and equipment below is for three bombs—a six cavity mold.    If your mold contains more cavities, and you’d like to make more bombs, please adjust the amount of chocolate and cocoa accordingly.

 

ESSENTIAL TOOLS:

- a silicone mold where the cavities range between 2”-2.5” in diameter. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08R9P5GDD/ref=ox_sc_saved_image_1?smid=A1H6Y74GEEJB1G&psc=1)

- a small microwaveable bowl or large mug in which to melt your chocolate— the BASE of which must be no wider than 4” to avoid burning your chocolate. 

- a spatula or spoon to stir your chocolate

- a plastic “ziploc” sandwich bag (for piping)

- a food safe “paint” brush or regular teaspoon (not to be confused with a measuring teaspoon, which you’ll also need)

- a small tray or flat plate on which to put the flexible silicone mold, so that it will be stable in the refrigerator 

- a barrier sheet between the mold and the tray (of either waxed paper/parchment paper/plastic wrap) on which to fill and decorate your “bombs”

 

ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS for the basic hot cocoa bomb:

- good chocolate 4oz.   If you want to use chocolate chips, please get chips without any extra additives, such as Trader Joe’s Semisweet chips.

- hot cocoa mix.  A one ounce package is perfect for three or four bombs.

 

Non-essential tools:

a pair of food safe gloves OR paper muffin liners OR something with a smaller rim than the diameter of your chocolate bomb so that you can rest your bomb atop it.  All will enable you to fill/assemble/decorate it without your warm hands melting into or leaving fingerprints on the “bomb”

 

 

NON-ESSENTIAL, BUT TASTY EXTRA INGREDIENTS:

- marshmallows

- sprinkles for decoration

- pop rocks

- spices (cinnamon, chili powder...whatever you like!)

- a peppermint stick or a crushed peppermint candy

- a graham cracker (a hot chocolate s’more, anyone?)
