Tips and Hints To Keep in Mind

  • Don’t get hung up thinking you have to use chocolate chips to make homemade hot cocoa bombs. Chocolate chips are just difficult and lumpy when melted!
  • Use candy melts, particularly when you’re working with white or dark chocolate – both of these chocolate types can be temperamental. Candy melts are smooth and prepped for actually being melting and molded. Pick up dark chocolate melting discs like this and make things easier on yourself.
  • That little sweet touch of raspberry is everything when combined with the dark chocolate. These dark chocolate hot cocoa bombs have to be shelf stable for longer than you can do with a fresh raspberry, however. I used a bag of freeze-dried raspberries like this and found a way to make use of both the raspberry powder and the whole berries!
  • When the chill hits and you’re craving that chocolate, ready to use your dark chocolate raspberry bombs, just pop them into your favorite coffee mug, heat-up about a cup of milk, and pour it directly over that bomb. Your hot chocolate bomb will float and as it melts, it will “explode!”

I love how easy it is to make these raspberry dark chocolate hot cocoa bombs and just how decadent they are in the mug!

Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 2 cups Dark Chocolate Candy Melts
  • 2 cups Hot Chocolate Mix
  • 1 cup Mini Marshmallows
  • ¼ cup Freeze-Dried Raspberries, crushed
  • 6 Whole Freeze-Dried Raspberries
  • ¼ cup Pink Chocolate Candy Melts


  1. Heat the dark chocolate candy melts in a microwave friendly bowl using the package directions. Place approximately 1 tbsp of the melted chocolate in one of the molds and, with the back of your spoon, move the chocolate up and around the mold sides, keeping it thick but even. Repeat covering 12 bomb molds then put them in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the chocolate filled molds from the freezer and peel the mold away from the chocolate. Fill 6 of half-spheres with 2 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix, 2 teaspoons of the crushed raspberry, and 5-8 mini marshmallow. 
  3. Warm a plate in the microwave and press an empty half-bomb open-side-down onto your heated plate for about 10 seconds to melt the rim. Immediately press this warmed edge onto one of the filled cups to join the two halves. If needed, you can add more melted chocolate around the edge.
  4. Heat the pink candy melts in a microwave-friendly bowl and place them in a piping bag with a small tip. Drizzle this over the hot cocoa bombs and immediately place a raspberry on top.
  5. Place your finished hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
  6. To use the hot cocoa bombs, place them in a mug and pour 2 cups hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy! photo collage tutorial of how to make raspberry dark chocolate hot cocoa bombs
