English Toffee Hot Chocolate Bomb

Have you tried hot chocolate bombs yet? They have quickly become a favorite at our house and we've made several varieties. 

Hot chocolate bombs are spheres of hollow chocolate. Inside the shell is hot cocoa mix and other yummy add-ins. The bomb is placed in a mug and piping hot milk is poured on top. The milk melts the outer chocolate shell and the fillings "pop" out. 

One of my favorite treats during the holidays is toffee, so it was only natural to make an English toffee hot cocoa bomb. Using a flavored cocoa mix and toffee bits, it's easy to make and so tasty.

ingredients for hot cocoa bombs


To make hot chocolate bombs, you will need a silicone mold. I find that a 2 to 2 1/2 inch diameter is best. That way it's large enough to hold the filling, but small enough to fit in a mug. 


If you've never made hot chocolate bombs before, I recommend visiting my original hot chocolate bombs article for tips and even more details. 

I'm working on several more flavors, including sea salt caramel and S'mores. I even made some with candy cane kisses. Most of my hot chocolate bombs include marshmallows.  I also created a free printable gift tag

Let's get started with the English toffee variety. I found a English toffee hot cocoa mix that I used for these bombs. It's what brings out the toffee flavor as well as adding toffee bits.

Begin by melting the chocolate chips. I have found that milk chocolate chips work the best for me. There is no need to temper the chocolate. 

I'm sure a high quality chocolate would up my game, but I'm not willing to spend the money or learn how to temper chocolate. So I'll stick with the easy and readily available chocolate chips. 

Melt the chips in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until chocolate is mostly melted. Stir until all lumps are gone and chocolate is smooth and creamy.

Spoon chocolate into the each cavity of the mold. Spread the chocolate around the sides of the mold with the back of the spoon. 
Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. While chocolate is hardening, gather the filling ingredients. Also bring a pot of water to a boil and place a glass plate on top.

Working quickly, remove the chocolate from the mold. Place one shell, edge side down, on the hot plate. Twist a few times to melt the edge. Set it down and add 1 tablespoon of cocoa mix and 1 teaspoon of toffee bits.

Melt the edge of another chocolate shell, place it on top of the filled shell with the melted edges together. Smooth the section where they meet with your finger. 

Place them back in the freezer for another 5 to 10 minutes. 

Drizzle with melted white chocolate and sprinkle with more toffee bits if desired.

Here's the video of the process. This video is for the hot chocolate bombs with marshmallows, but the concept is the same.
