Gingerbread House Hot Cocoa Bombs Recipe

Thank you for sharing!

Have you heard about Hot Cocoa Bombs? Here is one wildly awesome hot bomb that you’ll love: Gingerbread House Hot Cocoa Bombs!

Gingerbread House Hot Cocoa Bombs

These oh-so flavorful and quick-melt hot cocoa bombs became trendy because of their crafty aesthetic. But I decided to take it one step further, of course.

Plus, you get to have a warm and delicious chocolate drink afterward, which is always a bonus after you’ve been creative. People like that.

When I tried to make my own hot cocoa bombs (you know me! I love crafts and DIYs and new recipes that I know my family will enjoy, too!), I had fun because they were so easy–there are only 5 ingredients and assembling them is so simple!

They are such fun to use. Seeing your gingerbread house made up of chocolates melt it into your hot milk–all the marshmallows popping up to the surface and bam! You’ve got a heavenly drink. I love it.

I have a friend who loves anything gingerbread. Whenever I visit her or she visits me, she makes something tasty for me–it’s kind of my pass so I can see her. LOL! But this time, I’m bringing something fun to her and we’ll finally be equal! LOL!

As you can see, these are also perfect as a gift for anyone you know that enjoys hot cocoa drink. Or, just like my friend, loves anything gingerbread–best of both worlds.

Let the fun of making the Gingerbread House Hot Cocoa Bombs begin!

I used a mold I found at Joanne’s that no longer appears to be available there, but it’s also available here 

How To Make Gingerbread House Hot Cocoa Bombs

Place chocolate candy melts in a microwave-safe bowl and then melt in the microwave per the directions on the package.

Place 2 tbsp melted candy melt into one of the gingerbread house molds and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even. Repeat with all of the molds.

On a baking sheet, lined with a non-stick silicone baking sheet or parchment paper, draw a small square of chocolate with a decorating bag and small piping tip, large enough to serve as a bottom for the gingerbread houses. Repeat drawing 6 squares. 

Working with the first square of chocolate you made, fill it in with a solid filling of chocolate, making it about ¼ inch thick and as flat as you can possibly make it.

Place the chocolate filled molds and baking sheet into the freezer for 5 minutes.

Then remove molds from the freezer and gently slide the chocolate out of the mold.

Fill the molds with 2 tbsp hot chocolate mix and 10-15  mini marshmallows.

Press one of the chocolate squares onto the bottom of a house, then using the remaining melted chocolate in your decorating bag with the small piping tip, form a join line between the chocolate square and the house, joining the two pieces.

Place the red and green candy melts into separate microwave-safe bowls and melt them per the directions on the package.

Using the melted colored candy melts in your decorating bag with the small piping tip, add tiny Christmas trees next to the door on the gingerbread house, add a wreath above the door, and also, additional decorations as desired.

Place the hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes to get them to set, then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
