Lately, I have been obsessed with the new viral Cocoa Bombs (aka Hot Chocolate Bombs) that are all over the internet. We made Christmas Cocoa Bombs, New Year’s Eve Cocoa Bombs and my favorite; great for Valentine’s Day and New Years, the Proposal Cocoa Bomb.
This post is focused on the surprise Valentine’s Cocoa Bombs with a hidden surprise. I love surprises, especially jewelry.
It’s so much fun to watch someone see something pretty that they aren’t’ expecting. It’s one of the joys of giving.
Note: This is NOT for children as charms can be choking hazards.
One of my favorite parts of making the Cocoa Bomb is decorating with fun sprinkles. Visually, they really stunning and Surprise Valentines Hot Chocolate Bombs with a surprise are a great gift.
Make sure to add a label and tell them that there is something in there to look out for.
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. I added a charm in this one. Depending on the flavor, there are usually some decorations on the top of them. I love decorating the Cocoa Bombs with sprinkles.

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