Strawberry Hot Chocolate Bombs are the best way to drink hot chocolate! A sphere is filled with hot chocolate mix, strawberry powder and marshmallows. When placed in hot milk, the bomb “explodes” into a flavorful hot chocolate drink.
What are strawberry hot chocolate bombs?
Hot Chocolate Bombs have become all the rage lately! Melted chocolate is poured into a silicone half sphere and hardened. Then one half of the sphere is filled with hot chocolate powder, strawberry powder and marshmallows. The other half of the sphere is attached and when the bomb is placed into hot milk, it truly takes on its name “exploding” into a strawberry flavored hot chocolate drink!
🥘 Ingredients for this recipe
- chocolate candy melts or almond bark
- powdered hot chocolate mix
- freeze-dried strawberry powder
- strawberry mini marshmallows
- optional: cookie icing and/or sprinkles
🔪 Instructions for this recipe
- First, melt the chocolate. In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate in 30-60 second increments, stirring until smooth.
- Then fill the spheres. Spread the melted chocolate into the sphere mold, making sure to really coat the sides and bottom, then let it harden.
- Next, fill the spheres. In one half of each bomb, place the hot chocolate mix, strawberry powdered and marshmallows.
- Then assemble and decorate. Take the unfilled half of the sphere and swirl the edges in the remaining melted chocolate. Place it on top of the filled sphere to create a circle. Decorate with cookie icing or sprinkles if desired. Let sit for a few minutes.
- Finally, explode the hot chocolate bomb! Heat milk to almost boiling. Place a strawberry hot chocolate bomb into a mug or glass. Pour the hot milk on top and watch it explode with flavor. Stir before drinking.
