  • 6 ounces dark chocolate (choose dairy free)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (or cacao powder)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar


  • In a microwave safe dish, microwave the chocolate in 30 second increments on high heat, until melted.
  • Once melted, use a spoon to spoon about 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate into each silicone mold. Use the spoon to move the chocolate around so that the entire mold is filled up to each edge. Place the mold in freezer for 10 minutes to harden. Once the chocolate has hardened, carefully remove it from the molds by flipping the molds upside down and peeling the mold off of each chocolate sphere.
  • While the chocolate hardens, make the hot cocoa powder by mixing the cocoa powder and coconut sugar in a bowl. Set this aside.
  • Fill half the chocolate spheres with the cocoa mix plus any extras that you want (eg. marshmallows, sprinkles etc) - these will form the bottoms of the spheres.
  • Heat a large pan over low heat and gently press the remaining empty (or top half) of the chocolate spheres down onto the skillet for 2-3 seconds so that the edges melt slightly.
  • Press two sphere halves together (one empty one and one with the hot chocolate mix) and repeat for the remaining spheres. Place the hot chocolate bombs on a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  • Once hardened, remove the hot chocolate bombs from fridge. Place each bomb in a mug. Heat 1 cup of coconut milk (or other milk of choice) and pour over the bomb to let it melt. Stir well to remove any clumps and enjoy!


  1. Store these in the fridge in an air tight container. 
  2. Decorate these hot cocoa bombs any way you like - with more dark chocolate, white chocolate or even sprinkles!
  3. If you are serving a crowd feel free to double or triple the recipe.
