These Starbucks chai mocha hot cocoa bombs are my latest obsession. They are creamy, dreamy, and decidedly the best treat ever.
This hot cocoa bomb recipe is one for the adult palettes, I think, but it isn’t limiting at all. Because chocolate bombs are so easy to make, whip up a batch of these and a kid-friendly peanut butter and chocolate hot cocoa bomb at the same time!
Starbucks Hot Cocoa Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I love making hot chocolate bombs for gifts or just for our family. Friends and I have challenged ourselves with coming up with interesting combinations, fun ways to decorate cocoa bombs, and all manner of gift ideas.
This week, I wanted to pair my favorite Starbucks chai mocha latte with hot cocoa and it was an AMAZING combination! And the best part is I’m lazy, which means there is no piping bag, double boiler, or wickedly difficult tempering chocolate techniques needed. Grab your favorite mug and let’s get started.

Tips to Make The BEST Hot Cocoa Bombs
- If this is the first time you’re making our own DIY hot cocoa bombs, check out the tips and tricks on my hot cocoa bombs recipe page. It’s the best info to really get your cocoa bombs made fast and easy!
- Besides just being a hot chocolate bomb (which is awesome), the yummy touch of chai tea latte included elevates it. It’s a subtle difference but it makes for a party on the tongue.
- You will need a mold and a silicone mold is best – don’t skip on this and try anything else. My favorite (of the 3 sets I have) is this cocoa bomb silicone mold.
- Let’s take a second to talk about that chocolate really fast, friends. There’s nothing saying you CAN’T make these cocoa bombs with your standard chocolate chips, but let’s be honest, they’re not meant for melting and shaping. You know what is? Chocolate candy melts. They’re made for exactly this use and you can make them all shiny and have plenty of time to work with it. Just trust me – candy melts are where you want to be with this recipe.
- If you want to make differently colored cocoa bombs, just gather as many as your arms can hold. One color doesn’t work better than any other, so the sky is the limit (you don’t have to stick with brown).
- To use this decadent ball of chocolate filled with goodies is a two-step process. First, put the cocoa bomb in a heat-safe mug. Heat any milk (or water) to piping hot (hot enough to melt chocolate) and pour it over the bomb in the mug. Watch the magic happen when the chocolate melts and the bomb “explodes!”
- If you’re gifting these, I have quite a few free hot cocoa bomb labels with instructions for download. Just print, cut them out, and add a string.
