Tips to Make Mexican Hot Chocolate Bombs
- All the cool kids (just kidding, it’s me, I’m calling myself the ‘cool kids’) are skipping the chocolate chips to make their hot cocoa bombs with chocolate candy melts. Chocolate chips are just notoriously finnicky, going lumpy when you want them to be smooth and just not staying melted for long enough to work with them. Candy melts are my preferred material because they’re made for exactly this kind of action. So, just grab a bag of melting discs like this.
- What makes Mexican hot cocoa bombs special is the addition of a little spice in the way of some cayenne pepper. It adds more than JUST spiciness but the spice offsets the chocolate so well. There’s also only a subtle hint of cinnamon. I decided to jazz them up by adding yummy cinnamon churro marshmallows to get me over into that really rich territory.
- When it’s time for a mug of hot chocolate, just add your Mexican hot chocolate bombs into a mug, heat-up enough milk to fill the mug (between 1 and 2 cups) and pour it directly over the bomb. It’ll float, open, and “explode!”

I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. Note that amount of the Mexican spice mix is entirely up to you. If you want to limit the kick, start by adding only 1/4 teaspoon of the spice to each chocolate bomb.
