I seriously could not wait to share this recipe with you!  Today’s post is FULL of tips and tricks to help make these hot chocolate bombs easily!

What is a hot chocolate bomb?

Hot chocolate bombs are a chocolate confection made hallow so that cocoa powder, marshmallows and other fun ingredients can be placed inside. When the bomb is placed in a hot drink like steamed milk or coffee, it bursts open and the ingredients are then mixed together to create a hot chocolate drink.

These hot chocolate bombs are seriously super easy to make!  The key is freezing the chocolate treat between stages and peeling them out of the red solo cups.

Red Solo Cup Keto Cocoa Bomb Ingredients

Other supplies:

  • 6 mini red solos cups
  • 6 – 2″ pieces of festive drinking straw
  • Scissors
  • Masking Tape
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Pastry bag or freezer bag
  • Small microwave safe bowls for melting candy

Tip: sugar free chocolate takes longer to freeze and set up than regular chocolate and candy melts. This hot chocolate bomb is made within the mini red solo cup and only removed from the mold when completely set and frozen.

How to make red solo cup cocoa bombs:

Starbucks Cup Hot Chocolate Bombs Process

1. Cut the sides of the red solo cups open with scissors and then tape them back together with masking tape. This is so that when the chocolate has hardened, the cup can easily be opened and peeled from the chocolate.

2. Place the Lily’s chocolate chips and 1/2 tsp of coconut oil into a bowl, and heat in the microwave for 15 second intervals, stirring well after each session, until the chocolate is fully melted.

3. Add a large spoon full of melted candy to all of the cup cavities, then coat the melted candy around the inside of the cup, making sure to get all the way up the sides in a thick layer. Place the candy coated cups into the freezer for 15 minutes.

4. Remove the candy coated cups from the freezer and fill each cup with one tablespoon of hot chocolate mix.

5. Add about six marshmallow cubes and a straw to each cup.

Now for the fun part…

6. Place the white sugar-free baking chocolate and 1/2 tsp of coconut oil into a bowl. Heat in the microwave for 15 second intervals, stirring well after each session, until the candy is fully melted.

7. Carefully pour a teaspoon full of white chocolate over the marshmallows and around the straw, filling the remainder of the chocolate cup. Place in the freezer for at least 15 minutes.

Using mini red solo cups seemed to be easier, debatably, than using traditional hot cocoa bomb silicone molds. Definitely less expensive if you don’t have the molds already.

Tips for making Holiday Hot Chocolate Bombs:

  • Use the official hot chocolate bomb silicone molds, they make removing the hardened chocolate super easy!
  • When in doubt, use more chocolate to coat the mold so that the wall of the bomb is thick to hold in the ingredients.
  • Keep the chocolate in the freezer whenever possible as the bombs tend to melt easily.
  • When drizzling the chocolate, be sure to have it warm, not hot otherwise it will melt through your chocolate bomb.
