It's hard to find dairy-free hot chocolate bombs at the store, but you can make your own! Thanks to the availability of dairy-free chocolate chips, you can even make white chocolate or "milk" chocolate bombs. You will need a semi-sphere mold in addition to the ingredients.

Dairy-Free Hot Chocolate Bombs
  • 4 to 5 ounces (1/2 to ⅔ cup) dairy-free chocolate chips
  • 6 tablespoons dairy-free hot chocolate mix (homemade or store-bought)
  • Mini marshmallows (vegan, if desired)
  • Other fillings, if desired, such as crushed candy canes or sprinkles
To Serve
  • 1 cup hot dairy-free milk beverage or water (per bomb)
  1. Melt the chocolate according to Alisa's directions. This will keep it at a good melted temperature as you work.
  2. Paint the inside of the molds with a layer of chocolate using a pastry brush.
  3. Put the molds in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add a second layer of chocolate if needed, patching any holes.
  5. Put the molds in the freezer for 5 minutes.
  6. When the chocolate has hardened, remove the chocolate shells from the molds. Repeat if necessary.
  7. Place 1 Tablespoon of dairy-free hot chocolate mix in half of the chocolate cups. Top with a few marshmallows and other toppings if desired.
  8. When the melted chocolate has cooled to room temperature but is still liquid, use a thin layer of it as glue to attach two halves together. You could also use a hot plate or the microwave to attach the halves, as mentioned above.
  9. You can also use the cooled chocolate, or dairy-free frosting, to attach decorations to the top.
To Serve
  1. Place a bomb in a mug. Slowly pour 1 cup of hot dairy-free milk beverage or water (depending on the mix you use) over it, then stir and enjoy.
