Where to Buy Hot Chocolate Bombs Locally

We’re no strangers to really good hot chocolate, in fact, we’ve figured out who has the best hot chocolate in Indy and we’re had the Kona Gourmet Hot Cocoa truck visit our house, but now we’re all smitten with hot cocoa bombs!

Remember when everyone was making and buying and selling bath bombs? That was sooooo last Christmas! The bomb that everyone is talking about this year is the hot chocolate bomb!

What is a Hot Chocolate Bomb?

Hot chocolate bombs are a sphere of chocolate filled with marshmallows and hot cocoa. We’ve seen some unique spins on the hot chocolate bomb, including our favorite, the Unicorn Bomb (pictured: Unicorn Bombs by Not Enough Dough Cookies.) White chocolate with a pink and purple swirl. Once melted, edible glitter and sprinkles and rainbow marshmallows emerge and melt into a tasty treat.

How do I use a Hot Chocolate Bomb?

All you have to do is heat up some milk (generally about one cup) and drop the bomb in. The chocolate shell will melt, releasing the contents in to the cup. Alternatively, you can drop the bomb in your mug and pour hot milk over it. When the marshmallows are released, it’s known as a “bloom.”

Where to buy Hot Chocolate Bombs in Indianapolis, Hamilton County and more

After calling every single chocolate shop and chocolatier in the Indianapolis area, I came up with only two local shops that are offering chocolate bombs and one of them told me that they cannot even keep up with the orders they have so please don’t tell people they have them.

Schakolad Chocolate Factory – Two locations

Schakolad first got on our radar because of the chocolate dipped wine bottles an Indy with Kids friend sells. Today we’re all about their chocolate bombs. They come in the traditional sphere but also in the shape of Santa and other holiday fun. Instead of chocolate powder, Schakolad uses extra chocolate and homemade marshmallows. Just pour hot milk over the bomb and it’s a complete beverage.

DIY Hot Chocolate Bombs: How to Make Cocoa Bombs at Home

Materials:

Chocolate Chips or melting chocolate
Hot Cocoa Powder
Mini Marshmallows
Milk
Mug
Silicone Dome Molds

Melt your chips in a microwave safe bowl in 15 second intervals, stirring during each interval until the chips are all melted. Use a spoon to smooth the chocolate into the molds, covering the entire sphere half. Let it cool in the fridge until it is firm. Fill one side of the sphere about 3/4 full with your cocoa mix, marshmallows and any other mix-ins you’ve selected. Now you can smooth a layer over the back of the toppings to seal it in. The most popular way to create the bombs is to remove the chocolate “bowl” and then fill it and then put two halves together and seal them with melted chocolate.  We found the easiest method with our kids was to just seal the top of one half of the bomb and have a bomb that was flat on one side. It all tastes the same! Let it cool in the fridge for another 30 minutes or until firm. Now you’re ready to use it! Add it to your favorite coffee beverage or hot milk!
