  • Chocolate bars (You can choose any brand that you like.)
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Hot chocolate powder
  • Spherical silicone chocolate mold (Without this, you’ll not achieve a perfect hot cocoa bomb.)

Then, just follow these steps:

1. Melt those yummy chocolate bars.

You can use a microwave which will take about30 seconds at a time. You’ll need to check it and give it a good stir from time to time. This is the reason why cooking on a stove using a double boiler is easier. This is also exactly what Jacki did in her video.

2. Pour the melted chocolate in the mold.

You’ll have to put the mold inside the freezer for about 15 minutes. According to Jacki, if you prefer a thicker chocolate coating, you can put a second coat of melted chocolate.

3. It’s time to work on the fillings.

After you remove the coatings from the mold, fill half of them with little marshmallows and hot cocoa powder and leave the other half empty.

4. To make these little balls, you’ll need to seal each one of them.

You can do it by putting the empty halves (which will be the top part) on the pan with low heat, rimside down. Do this only for just a couple of seconds, until the chocolate is slightly melted. Check if there are any cracks and seal them with a little amount of melted chocolate.

That’s it!

It’s actually pretty easy to make. However, you’ll need to be extra careful because these balls are fragile.

This coming Christmas, you’ll certainly enjoy making and sharing this treat with your loved ones. Don’t forget the hot milk, though.

Thanks to Jacki for sharing this uncomplicated, yet super sweet recipe!

Of course, thanks to TikTok for this kind of content that’s really helpful to all of us. Every video on this platform is undoubtedly powerful as it can entertain us in a matter of 60 seconds. Kudos to all the content creators for making videos that are worth watching!
