Getting engaged during Covid is something a lot of couples didn’t expect. Asking someone to marry you during a pandemic has been popular after couples are realizing that they may not want to keep having social distanced dates or are just ready to take that next step with the love of their life! Plus, a Valentine’s Day proposal is so romantic!

3 Cocoa Bombs

What’s the Most Romantic Way to Propose During a Pandemic?

I really don’t know, lol. I can’t tell you from my experience; that’s for another blog post. Since we are in a Pandemic, I would assume that there are more home proposals than destination proposals.

I’ve never been one for genius proposal ideas but I sure came up with a unique marriage proposal idea for popping the question whether you are quarantining at home or on a secluded getaway. I made this “Will you marry me? Cocoa Bomb surprise.”

With Cocoa Bombs going Viral this year on Tik Tok, I had to find something fun for people to come up with for a marriage proposal.

Marriage proposal ideas for at home are probably more popular now during Covid because people are not traveling so much. Cocoa bombs are easy and delicious, fun for a small party. Make sure you remember which one has the ring!

What is a Hot Chocolate Bomb?

A hot chocolate bomb ( also called a hot cocoa bomb) is a thin chocolate shell filled with cocoa powder and marshmallows. Sometimes there are other goodies added inside; this time we are putting a engagement ring charm. Depending on the flavor, there is usually some decorations on the top of them.

  1. Melt chocolate (start with 1 min 50% power) Do not over melt - just stir lumps until meltedsilicone mold with chocolate
  2. Spoon chocolate into the mold
  3. Put molds on a tray or cutting board and into refrigerator for 30 mins
  4. Pull chocolate molds out of molds when ready using gloves (if you don't want fingerprints)
  5. Heat up a plate for 1 minutespoon of cocoa
  6. Place mold on the plate to smooth out and fill with 1 Tablespoon of Cocoa Powder
  7. Place marshmallows inside
  8. Place other half of mold on hot plate and smooth out and immediately place on top of cocoa filled mold
  9. Heat up some white chocolate chips and spoon into a ziplock bag, cut off tip and drizzle on top.
  10. Add sprinkles


Exact amounts of ingredients needed or yield may vary depending on the actual silicone mold you use. Silicone molds come in all sizes - with the one's I purchased, I used the large ones, so if you don't use the exact same one we did, you may end up needing more or less of each ingredient. I used a full tablespoon of Cocoa in each mold.

If you are drizzling the white chocolate on top of bomb, make sure it cools a little otherwise it will put a hole in the bomb
