Some of my best memories are having hot cocoa with marshmallows, and frosted Christmas cookies while we went to get our Christmas Tree. It was a family tradition my parent’s started when it was just the 5 of us and it has grown to our whole family of 20+ people in recent years.

Hot Chocolate Bomb Tips

This section covers a few simple ways to make a hot chocolate bomb.

A hot chocolate bomb is a little treat that melts in the microwave and turns the milk into a delicious, foamy, hot drink. It can be made with ground almonds, cocoa powder, and sugar or with vanilla extract and sugar. The ingredients are mixed together and then poured into a mug. The mug is then microwaved for about 45 seconds before enjoying the foamy beverage!

The ingredients for this recipe can be acquired from any grocery store or roadside vendor for less than $5.

Cocoa bombs are a great and easy way to sweeten any drink and give it a delicious chocolatey taste. They can be enjoyed as an after-dinner treat or added to breakfast smoothies for that extra energy boost.

The trick is to slowly melt the chocolate chips in a hot water bath, constantly stirring until they have melted down. You can add other ingredients, such as almond butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and coconut oil. Give the cocoa bomb mixture a stir before adding it to your cup of hot water.

What is a Grinch, Exactly?

The Grinch is shown as a hairy, full-bellied, pear-shaped, up-turned-nosed creature with a cat-like face and pessimistic personality. In full-color movies, he is normally colored avocado green. He has spent the past 53 years living as a hermit on a cliff which overlooks the town of Whoville.

Grinch Cocoa Bombs

It was thought that the Grinch was known to have a mental illness (which seems everyone is so quick to diagnose these days) of  Antisocial Personality Disorder. I personally think he was just a lonely, angry old man. Especially since, as you know, at the end of the story, his heart grew three times its size. Do you think that would happen if he had a disorder? No, me either.

Servings 8 -10 Bombs
Calories 569 kcal


  • 2 Silicone Sphere Molds
  • 1 lb of Dark Green Candy Melts
  • 2 cup Mint Chocolate Hot Cocoa Powder
  • 8-10 Nerdy Nummies Red Candy Hearts
  • 1 disposable piping bag
  • 1 cookie sheet fitted with wax paper
  • 2 cup Mini Marshmallows
  • 1 cup Bright Colorful Sprinkles


This part is 100% optional and a personal choice:

  • Cut the silicone molds so that each sphere mold is by itself as shown in the process image. I did this because I felt it was easier to control the mold when working with the melted chocolate.
  • Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny coat on it.
  • Using a heat-safe bowl, pour the dark green candy melts into the bowl and place in the microwave for 45-second intervals.
  • Make sure to stir the candy melts after every 45 seconds until completely melted and smooth.
  • Using a spoon, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the melted candy melts into the mold.
  • Carefully swirl the melted candy melt to completely coat the inside of the mold.
  • Lightly shake the extra candy melt back into the bowl.
  • Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened candy melt.
  • Carefully place the mold onto a cutting board.
  • Repeat steps with the remaining molds.
  • You should now have 8 half-sphere molds.
  • Scoop some of the melted candy melt into the piping bag and cut the tip

Building the cocoa bomb :

  • Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold.
  • Sprinkle in a pinch of the sprinkles.
  • Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows.
  • Pipe a line of the melted candy melt around the edge of the bottom shell.
  • Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped candy melt to harden to the top shell.
  • Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells.
  • Place the mold back onto the cutting board.
  • Drizzle the candy melt over the bomb.
  • Place a heart into the center and allow it to harden for 10 minutes!
  • Enjoy!


Microwave time for melt time is like 45 seconds to 90 seconds.
