Heart Hot Chocolate Bombs Recipe

Heart hot chocolate bombs are my favourite among the ornamental edibles. I loved making my take on Valentine’s Day hot chocolate bombs using silicone heart molds. Now I’m so excited to use those molds again as Mother’s Day rolls around the corner. This recipe is interchangeable as a mid-February Valentine’s day treat, or as a gift to offer for Mother’s Day. There is nothing overtly romantic or sensual that would make interchanging this recipe between the two occasions awkward or embarrassing.

Heart Hot Chocolate Bombs Recipe

The Best Edible Decor

My favourite thing about hot chocolate bombs, besides how fun they are to melt, is the decorative aspect of them. They make great little details to keep in your kitchen seasonally. I especially like how they can make things more festive as celebrations change from Halloween to Mother’s Day. I think the best thing about these Mother’s Day heart hot chocolate bombs is that they provide an opportunity to reuse molds you got way back in February for Valentine’s Day. It saves money while also giving you more bang for your buck.

Making Your Heart Hot Chocolate Bombs

As with any hot chocolate bomb, heart hot chocolate bombs are made in two phases. The first phase is the craft phase. This is where you get to create the hot chocolate bombs and put them on display in a jar on your counter. Later you get to make the hot chocolate bomb by preparing it to drink. In that way, this is like a recipe and a craft.

Keep that in mind as you read the instructions for how to make these heart hot chocolate bombs, you have the option when making these hearts of taking the extra step to make pink hearts or to even make hearts that are half pink and half chocolate coloured. I like the pop of colour that the pink provides and it makes the gift more presentable.

The piping bag or Ziplock bag is essential to the final look of the Heart Hot Chocolate Bombs as you will drizzle melted chocolate over the hearts to add the finishing decorating touch.

Make the hearts using silicone molds. Each mold makes hearts that you need to adhere to each other. Use caution as you melt the rims of the hemispheres as the plate will be hot.

How To Make The Hot Chocolate Hearts

Place the bag of chocolate chips in a microwavable safe bowl in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Repeat the same for the white chocolate chips.

Pour 1 tbsp of chocolate into each chocolate mold. Use a spoon to swirl the chocolate around and coat the edges. Make sure to spoon the chocolate up the sides until it makes a thicker shell. Put the chocolate mold in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes or until it’s set. When the chocolate is set, remove from the refrigerator and gently pop them out of the mold. You should have 16 spheres.

Heat a plate in the microwave for 30 seconds and be careful as the plate might be hot. Carefully take the open side of the sphere and place it onto the plate to melt off the uneven edges to create a smooth edging.

Spoon 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix in 8 of the chocolate sphere and add marshmallows on top. Connect 1 empty half chocolate bomb to 1 half that is full of the mixture and seal together. As the melted chocolate hardens, it will seal.

Heat up the left over chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds intervals until it’s soft again. Pour it in a Ziplock bag and cut a tiny piece at one of the ends or use a pasty bag with a tip. Drizzle the melted chocolate over top of the hot cocoa bomb and allow to dry. You can also use a spoon to drizzle instead of a bag.
