My original Naughty or Nice Grinch Hot Chocolate has been a family favorite for years, so I decided to take it one step further with these fun Christmas hot chocolate bombs!

They are so much fun to watch and a great project to do with the kids!

Recipe ingredients:

Green candy melts. white hot cocoa mix, tiny marshmallows, red hearts and green sugar in white bowls.

These hot chocolate bombs are created using green candy melts to enclose the white chocolate cocoa mix, dehydrated marshmallows, and green jimmies.

The outside is decorated with additional drizzled chocolate, green sugar, and a red candy heart.

What size mold do I use for hot chocolate bombs?

How to make Grinch Hot Chocolate Bombs:

Place the candy melts in a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute in the microwave, remove and stir until smooth. If still not melted completely, heat in 15 second increments and stir until smooth. Do not overheat!!

Place in the refrigerator for 10 to 20 minutes to harden the chocolate.

Warm a small plate on a warming burner, a hot plate, in a skillet on low heat, or in the microwave.

Remove the chocolate from the molds by gently pressing on the backside of the mold.

Feel free to add additional marshmallows before serving!

Recipe Notes & Tips:

  • If chocolate is too stiff to stir add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, or any other solid fat to help thin it out. Add more if needed, but do not add too much or your chocolate will not set correctly.
  • For mint flavored hot chocolate, add 3 drops of mint flavor oil to the melted chocolate.
  • You can substitute regular hot cocoa mix, but it will turn your hot chocolate a dark, murky color.
  • Do not add liquid to the inside of the cocoa bomb, it will cause clumping and will not dissolve correctly.
  • If you cannot find green chocolate, substitute white chocolate and add a few drops of green food coloring.
  • Handle the chocolate bombs as little as possible so the warmth of your hands does not melt them. I wore gloves to help reduce fingerprints and melting.
  • Place hot chocolate bombs in a cupcake liner and place inside a cellophane bag to give as gifts!

How to store:

Store your cocoa bombs at room temperature for up to two weeks in an airtight container or zipper topped bag. Store away from heat and light.
