Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe for Valentine's Day

Hot Chocolate Hearts

Yes, I'm a choco-holic. But then, I had to be to research and write an entire novel about chocolate, right? Ah, but it was two years happily spent… This Valentine's Day (or any day), treat yourself and your loved ones with this DIY Hot Chocolate Bombs recipe this Valentine's Day. These chocolate-ly heart-shaped chocolate bombs melt into delicious, endorphin-generating hot chocolate.

In this recipe, you can use any of your favorite chocolate bars. Think rich dark chocolate, creamy milk chocolate. Kick it up a gourmet notch with flavored chocolate: mint, caramel, cherry, etc., and use a regular hot chocolate mix. For this recipe, I'm using one of my faves from Chuao Chocolatier called Spicy Maya

Curl into your favorite chair with a warm mug of hot chocolate and a good book. For a chocolate-infused adventure along the beautiful Amalfi, Italy coast, read The Chocolatier or listen to it on audiobook. Enjoy!

Hot Chocolate Bombs


  • 1 Spicy Maya chocolate bar
  • 4 scoops Spicy Maya drinking chocolate
  • mini marshmallows
  • 4 cups steamed milk


1. Break the chocolate bar into squares and place in a microwavable bowl. Melt in 30-second increments until mostly melted. Stir to melt the rest. (Don't overcook it! )

2. Coat a silicone mold with the melted chocolate. Find a cute heart-shaped mold to use. Make sure each mold is fully coated. Don't be shy, use plenty of chocolate here!

3. Let cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

4. Carefully remove the chocolate from the mold.

5. Fill half the hearts with drinking chocolate and marshmallows.

6. Use the remaining melted chocolate to attach one empty half and one filled half together.

7. Let cool again.

8. Lace the chocolate heart in your favorite mug.

9. Pour steamed milk over it. The milk has to be pretty hot to melt the chocolate. Make sure once you stir, you let it cool to the desired drinking temperature.

10. Stir and enjoy!
