Thank you for sharing!

Hot cocoa bombs are so fun. Here’s a recipe that’s unique and perfect to serve at a birthday party, Birthday Cake Hot Cocoa Shots!

Birthday Cake Hot Cocoa Shots

Hot cocoa bombs are so trendy and are seriously every hot cocoa lover’s favorite. Just like me. I enjoy them a lot, especially during cold weather.

My kids love them too. They are always fascinated whenever I pour that hot milk over their hot chocolate bombs, watching them melt and blend with their favorite milk.

But, because I’m “extra” I’ve got something different here. Simple, fun and super unique, these hot chocolate bomb shots are perfect for birthday party treats, party favors, or as a birthday gift. 

However, it doesn’t have to be someone’s birthday. Any gathering will do. Or just make them for yourself and have some fun. I mean, who doesn’t love birthday cake-flavored hot cocoa bombs in shot form?!

It’s like a little party in a mug just for me. LOL!

A great addition to the Hot Cocoa Charcuterie Board I’ve got planned for the first chilly day here (come on, fall, I’m waiting for you). 

How to Make Birthday Cake Hot Cocoa Shots

Making these Birthday Cake Hot Cocoa Shots is very easy. Even simpler than making a cocoa bomb because there are no two sides and all that business. All you need is to create a “shot glass” from candy melts, then fill it to the brim. That’s it!

But first, you’ll have to gather your ingredients. I listed below, since I’m helpful like that.

Ingredients For Birthday Cake Hot Chocolate Shots

Tools

  • Silicone shot glass mold
  • Small piping bag. Or just a zip lock bag and make a very small cut at one corner.
  • 2 microwave-safe bowls

Instructions

Place the birthday cake candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl then melt in the microwave per the candy melt directions.

Do the same on the white candy melts then put it in a small piping bag to be used later.

Carefully pour the melted yellow candy melts into the molds and fill them up.

Ingredients and instructions

Place the filled molds into the freezer for about 5 minutes. Then carefully peel the silicone away to bring out the “shot glass.”

Place about 1 heaping tablespoon of white hot cocoa mix into each “shot glass.”.

Pipe out the white candy melts over the marshmallows swinging back and forth letting it flow at the side of the “shot glass.”
