The Melting Snowman Hot Chocolate Bomb is the perfect winter treat to warm you up on a cold day. This hot chocolate bomb has gained popularity in recent years, and for good reason – it's not only delicious but also fun to make and watch melt!
So, what exactly is a hot chocolate bomb? It’s a hollow chocolate sphere filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. Once placed into a mug and topped with steaming hot milk, the chocolate shell melts away, revealing the hidden treats inside. The result is a rich and creamy cup of hot chocolate that will satisfy all your cravings.
The Melting Snowman Hot Chocolate Bomb takes this concept to an adorable new level. Instead of a plain round shape, these bombs are designed to look like snowmen complete with white chocolate coating, mini marshmallow buttons, pretzel stick arms, and candy eyes and nose. As you pour hot milk over them, their cute little faces begin to melt away into your mug – it’s almost too cute to drink!
But don’t let its cuteness fool you; this hot chocolate bomb also delivers on taste. The combination of rich cocoa powder mixed with sweet mini marshmallows creates the perfect balance of flavors in every sip.

Ingredients for Melting Snowman Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe
20 oz bag white chocolate chips or candy melts
2 c milk chocolate hot chocolate mix
1 - 1 ½ c mini dehydrated marshmallows
½ c dark chocolate chips
¼ c orange candy melts
Directions for Melting Snowman Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe
TO MAKE THE HOT CHOCOLATE BOMB: Melt the bag of chocolate in the microwave in 30 second increments and stir until smooth.
Fill each cavity of the hot chocolate mold until covered. We like to use the back of a spoon to draw the chocolate up the sides. Allow to set.
Follow up with another layer of melted chocolate around the top edge of each cavity where the two spheres are going to join. A thicker edge is better! Keep in mind that you don’t want to fill the cavity too full of chocolate (it will try to rest in the bottom) as that means less cocoa mix and marshmallows. Allow to set.
Remove the sphere halves from the molds very gently.
Using a WARM frying pan, gently melt the ridge of one sphere.
Fill with drink mix of choice and any marshmallows, if desired.
Then take another shell half and place in the frying pan to melt down the edges. Immediately place this shell on top of the filled half in order to create the seal and join the two halves to make the complete sphere. Gently press along the sides to clean up the seal and remove any excess melted chocolate.
Set to the side as you finish the remaining bombs.
TO DECORATE: Melt the chocolate chips and the orange candy melts. Transfer the melted chocolates to individual piping bags. Cut a small hole in the end of the chocolate and pipe two larger circles for the eyes and then about 5 smaller circles for the coal mouth. Cut a small hole in the end of the orange bag and pipe a triangular shape to form the nose. Allow to set for the chocolate to harden.
TO ENJOY: When ready to consume, place the bomb in a mug. Heat up 8-12 oz of milk or water – the hotter the better explosion. Slowly pour over the bomb and stir thoroughly. Allow to cool before consuming, if needed. Enjoy!
Storage: Hot cocoa bombs can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months at room temperature.
