Ingredients Needed To Make Conversation Heart Hot Cocoa Bombs

How to Make Conversation Heart Hot Cocoa Bombs

Melt the chocolate in the microwave being careful not to burn.

Separate the melted chocolate into several small bowls (depending on how many colors you plan to make).

Use 1-2 drops of gel food coloring into each bowl and stir well. You can make them as light or dark as you’d like. Do not use regular food coloring or it will cause the chocolate to seize.

Spoon the colored chocolate into the molds and ensure the entire mold is coated.

Place into refrigerator for about 15 minutes until the chocolate is set then remove and gently push the back to remove the chocolate balls.

Use a hot plate or skillet to melt the edges of one chocolate mold and then fill with the hot cocoa bomb ingredients.

Attach the other side to the hot cocoa bomb and allow the chocolate to harden.

Decorate the top of the hot cocoa bombs with melted chocolate and a conversation heart.

Once the chocolate has hardened and you are ready to use, put into a cup and pour hot milk over. Stir and enjoy!

Hot Cocoa Bomb Tips:

  • Avoid getting the candy melts wet (as in with water) or they will seize and will be ruined.
  • The chocolate bombs need to be stored somewhere cool or they will melt.
  • Avoid holding or touching the hot cocoa bombs for too long or they will melt in your hands.
  • You can wear food safe gloves to avoid getting fingerprints on your chocolate bombs.
  • To have easier control of the silicone molds and to make the chocolate come out easier, you can cut the silicone molds so that each sphere mold is by itself. You can read how to cut your hot chocolate bomb mold here.
  • To make a hot plate, place a microwave safe plate inside the microwave for 30 seconds and check on it. If it’s hot enough, remove with a heat resistant mitten. If not, heat for another 30 seconds until hot.
  • To store, keep them in an airtight container in fridge to avoid melting. 
  • You do not need to spray the silicone mold with cooking spray, the hot cocoa bombs pop right out without any extra steps.
  • You can place them inside sealed bags for gift giving.

How to Use Hot Chocolate Bombs

Once your hot chocolate bomb is ready to be used, drop into 8-10 oz of hot milk or stick into the bottom of a cup and pour 8-10 oz of hot milk over the chocolate bomb.

Watch the hot chocolate bomb melt before your eyes. Stir and drink to enjoy!

You can use whatever milk you want such as whole, skim or even almond milk. We use 1% milk.

Keep in mind, use less milk if you want a more rich taste and use more milk if you want a less rich taste.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Additional Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 6


  • 16 Ounces of White Melting Chocolate – Chips or Almond Bark. I prefer the Ghirardelli Brand
  • 2 packets of Hot Cocoa Mix – about 1 heaping teaspoon in each Cocoa bomb
  • 1 cup of Mini Marshmallows – about 5 to each Cocoa Bomb
  • One package of Valentines Conversation Hearts
  • 6 cups of Hot Milk
  • 1 set of Silicone Molds
  • Melted White Chocolate to drizzle on top
  • Assorted pastel Gel Food Coloring Gel – pink green, blue, purple, yellow, peach


  • Place the White Chocolate in a Microwave safe bowl, and melt until smooth and creamy. (About 30 seconds then stir and repeat until melted) Stir well.  
  • Divide the melted Chocolate into 5 small cups, and place a drop of Gel Food Coloring in cups, making 5 pastel colors, one color in each cup. Do not use regular food coloring or the chocolate will seize.
  • Stir the chocolate until the colors are smooth, and add a little more food coloring gel if you want the colors brighter. (If you only want to use 2 or 3 colors, only use 2 or 3 cups to divide the chocolate) 
  • Spoon or ladle into the molds, making sure to coat the inside of the molds.  Pour excess chocolate back into the bowl, and place the molds in the refrigerator, and let harden for 15 minutes. 
  • Remove molds from refrigerator, and carefully remove chocolate from molds, placing 6 half balls in a row on a cookie sheet. These will be the bottom parts, or half of the Cocoa bombs. 
  • Heat a non stick Skillet, on low, and place one half ball with the open side down, melting just the edges for a few seconds, remove, place on a cookie sheet, and fill the ball with the powdered Cocoa, a Conversation Heart, and mini Marshmallows.  Repeat, until all 6 Balls are done.
  • Place the other half of the Chocolate balls in the skillet, with the open side down, and melt just the edges of the ball. Remove from the Skillet, and immediately place on one of the chocolate balls, filled with the cocoa, etc., making the top of the ball/bomb.  Hold in place a few seconds to make sure the top and bottom are melted together. 
  • When all the Cocoa Bombs have been filled, and melted together, place them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, until chocolate is completely set.  Remove from the Refrigerator, and sit the cookie sheet on the counter.
  • Place more White Chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, and microwave at 15 second intervals until the chocolate melts. 
  • Place the melted chocolate in a Pastry bag (or baggie with the end snipped off), and pipe the White Chocolate over the Cocoa Bombs (see photo) and place a Conversation Heart on the top. 
  • When ready to use, place one Hot Cocoa Bomb in the bottom of a large mug, and pour heated milk over the top. 
  • Cocoa Bomb will melt and bubble, and marshmallows will float to the top.  Stir the powdered cocoa, and Enjoy!
