Whenever we make these St. Patrick’s Day chocolate bombs, we feel a little luckier! Drop these hot chocolate bombs into a mug of warm milk and watch them explode into a delightful green-and-gold treat.
We talk about hot chocolate bombs all the time here on the blog. One because they’re adorable, but also because they’re versatile for any occasion. So: as we were gathering up and doing inventory on all of our St. Patrick’s Day party supplies, we realized we had to tell you all some ideas we had for St. Patrick’s Day chocolate bombs!
In many parts of the world that celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, it’s still bound to be a little chilly on the occasion. That’s when you break out the milk and these hot chocolate bombs, filled with marshmallows, green-and-gold sprinkles, and (of course!) hot cocoa mix. They’re easy to make and incredibly fun, too! We hope you enjoy them!
First, though, let’s talk about how to make them…
St. Patrick’s Day Chocolate Bombs: Ingredients & Supplies
If you have access to a grocery store (and this website), you have access to everything you’ll need for hot chocolate bombs!
- Candy melts: In St. Patrick’s Day colors like varying shades of green…or any color you like, for any other time of the year! You’ll use these to form the outer shell of your hot cocoa bomb and to drizzle on top of the bombs for decoration after.
- Hot cocoa mix: Can’t have hot cocoa bombs without cocoa mix, of course. When the bomb melts, this mix is released into the mug.
- Sprinkles: Choose your favorites! These go inside your bombs and release as the bomb melts. We have some sprinkles suggestions in the section below.
- Mini marshmallows and Lucky Charms marshmallows: These go hidden inside your bombs alongside the sprinkles!
Yes, we have so many sprinkles to talk about, we had to make them a separate list from the rest of the ingredients! For these hot chocolate bombs, we recommend…
- Our So Fancy mix: For that pot-of-gold look!
- Our Rainbow Jimmies: To represent the rainbow above the pot of gold, of course.
- Gold Nonpareils: Another set of adorable golden sprinkles, this time in a teeny-tiny sphere form.
- Our Gold Star Quin Sprinkles: Who doesn’t want a St. Patrick’s Day treat full of pretty little golden stars?
- Our Emerald Isle mix: Sprinkles that remind us of good old Ireland.
- Our St. Patrick’s Day rods: Long sprinkle rods in white, gold, and green. They’re like jumbo-sized jimmies.
- Our Lucky Charm mix: A bit like our Emerald Island mix, but with more white and some clover-shaped sprinkles, too!
- Our Chocolate Mold Cocoa Bomb: Creating the spherical shape for the bomb has never been easier than with our mold!
- Paintbrush or spoon: Optional, but makes it simpler to get the chocolate into your bomb mold.
- Plastic squeeze bottle or disposable decorator bag: Also optional, but again, these are tools that will help a lot with decorating, etc.
