Hot Chocolate Bombs have become the Bombdiggity over the past couple of years. Did you catch my 90’s kid reference there? I’m sure if my kids heard me use that term, they’d be rolling their eyes and groaning at my choice of slang. Let’s just say I understand my slang way better than their generation’s!

For New Year’s Eve, I have to admit that I rarely stay awake more than a few minutes past the ball drop. We all like to snuggle in the living room and watch the final round of our favorite Christmas-themed movies. We also indulge in our favorite snacks and treats with the hopes of getting that final taste before we attempt a healthier lifestyle for the upcoming new year.

Themed hot chocolate bombs are another fun way that you can get the kids involved in a new tradition to celebrate the hope for a wonderful new year. Even if they can’t stay awake until midnight, you can do a special countdown with them while they dunk the hot chocolate bomb in a warm cup of milk.

How to Make New Year’s Eve Hot Chocolate Bombs:

Melt black candy melts as directed on the package.

Add a little black candy melts to the dome mold and spread with the back of a spoon. Do this in one thin layer to coat then place in freezer for 10 minutes. Take it back out and coat only where you can see through the mold. If you cannot see through the mold you do not need to add more. You want the bomb to stay together but not be too thick.

If you add more to the see through spots then place back in the freezer for another 10 minutes. Remove and slowly pop out the each side of the bombs. Place on a plate.

Heat a frying pan to low heat. Place one side of the bomb rim down onto the frying pan. This will lightly melt and even out the edges. Quickly add about 2 tablespoons cocoa mix to the bomb and marshmallows. Add edible glitter to the centers. Melt the other side of the bombs rim and then place evenly with the other side.

This will seal them together evenly. Do not add chocolate to the outside edge as it will just melt the bomb.

Microwave the white chocolate candy melts and drizzle some over the top of the bomb. Add gold star sprinkles.

Let dry and serve in a cup and pour over hot milk to dissolve the bomb and stir well.
