Hot Cocoa Bombs

This recipe will make about 4 Cups of Hot Chocolate*


  1. Place the cocoa, chocolate chips, and a quarter cup of milk in a saucepan and stir and cook over medium heat until all of the chocolate is melted.
  2. Once melted, add 3 C of milk, stirring the whole time, and heat thoroughly but don’t let milk curdle. 
  3. Pour into molds, or on a lined tray and use dividers set to the 20 or 40 portions. (4 oz molds are great because 2 pucks will need 1 Cup of water to rehydrate) Dividers set to 20 in a 6 cup tray, would need 2 rectangles and just over a cup of water to rehydrate)
  4. Add marshmallows on top, and then freeze until frozen solid.
  5. Freeze Dry
  6. Store Appropriately (See Tips and Tricks for storage help)


This would work great in a jar for gift giving, if you use round molds.


Cycle Time:

Will Vary

* Large Tray = 8 Cups/tray   Medium = 6 Cups/Tray   Small = 4 Cups/Tray

Cycle times & rehydration for reference only. Your results may vary.
