  • Silicone Sphere Chocolate mold, 2”-3” spheres
  • Pastry or Basting Brush


  • Chocolate Almond Bark
  • 4 TBSP Hot Cocoa Mix We Use Nesquik
  • 1 Shot Liquor of your Choice


  • Start by melting a few squares of each almond bark separately in microwave-safe bowls.
  • Spoon a little bit of the melted almond bark into each sphere, then use the basting brush (or the back of your spoon… I just found a brush to be better) to paint the melted almond bark all around each sphere, up to the top edges.
  • Let almond bark cool and harden.
  • Gently pop each sphere out by pressing on the backside of each mold.
  • Warm-up your frying pan for a minute or two on medium heat, then turn off the heat OR warm up a plate with hot water for 1 minute, then dry it off.
  • Quickly place each sphere half-open side down onto the warm frying pan or plate, allowing the rough edges to melt away, and then quickly pick up and set aside. Do this with half of your spheres.
  • In a small bowl, combine 4 Tablespoons of cocoa mix with 1 shot of liquor (or one mini single bottle). Stir to combine and add extra cocoa mix if needed. It should be the consistency of Hershey's chocolate syrup.
  • Pour your syrup into one of your half spheres, almost to the top.
  • Now take the other half of your molds and melt the rough edges. While the almond bark is still warm and melted on the edges, place on top of one of your filled sphere halves. Press together lightly and then wipe a clean finger around the edges to clean up the lines of melted almond bark. Let cool. Repeat with the rest of the spheres and syrup.
  • Decorate as you wish.
  • To use your cocoa bombs, place one into a mug. Heat up your desired type of milk, 8oz for each bomb. Bring your milk almost to a simmer, then remove from heat and pour over your cocoa bomb. Stir and watch as it turns into delicious hot cocoa!
