Tips for Making the Perfect Hot Cocoa Bomb Recipe
- Hot cocoa bombs are easy and popular which means you might be on the hunt for the “right” mold. Here are a few tips to choosing the perfect hot cocoa bomb mold:
- ensure the size of the half sphere is at least 2.5 inches
- a silicone (not ice) mold is best as it is flexible, allowing the chocolate half spheres to release easily
- don’t be scared of shapes – check out the hot cocoa bombs I’ve made and know that you do not have to be limited!
- All that said, this is the hot cocoa bomb mold I use most often.
- The brand or color of the melting wafers do not matter – I use Wilton and Ghirardelli interchangeably without issue – just be sure to use a microwave safe bowl to melt the chocolate if using the microwave or set up a double boiler on the stove. And do not use chocolate chips – you need candy melting wafers.
- You may use white chocolate or milk chocolate (or even use both for a fun tuxedo hot cocoa bomb).
- The biggest problem I hear about (cracking the chocolate shell) can be solved by adding enough chocolate to coat the entire half sphere – make sure there are no thin spots.
- If you overfill the mold, don’t worry, just use the back of a small spoon to gather up the excess.
- You do not need a special pastry brush – use the back of a spoon to move the candy melts into the sphere and coat it entirely.
- Clean up the top edge (to make it easier on yourself later and avoid cracking or splitting when joining the half spheres).
- Add these hot cocoa bombs to a cute gift box or cellophane bag for individual cocoa bombs – these are the best edible gift idea!
- Add a tag with these instructions if gifting:
- remove the hot cocoa bomb from the wrapping
- place the hot chocolate bomb in a large coffee mug or tumbler
- pour hot milk (about 8 ounces) over the bomb and stir
