Storage Instructions

Hot cocoa bombs are best if consumed shortly after making.

However, you can store them in a refrigerator for up to 7 days in an air-tight container or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Keep these bombs at a cool temperature to avoid melting.

Milk Infusion Options

If you want to keep these hot cocoa bombs virgin, not infused with cannabis, in case you have kids or others around who cannot consume them, try infusing this drink with cannabis milk instead!

Notes and Expert Tips

  • If you want a more professional look and feel, temper the chocolate before making it into bombs.
  • When working with chocolate moldings, ensure enough freezing time to avoid breakage and melting.
  • Feel free to use any chocolate of your choice! Dairy and nut-free chocolate chip alternatives are available in most stores.
  • Make sure to warm up the milk prior to adding the chocolate bomb.
  • Store in a dark environment with a cool temperature.

Cannabis Hot Cocoa Bombs

Delicious, melt-in-your-mouth, cannabis hot cocoa bombs! You've seen them on TikTok and Instagram, but have you seen them infused with cannabis? Find out how to make these with multiple different infusion options.
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Freezing Time: 20 minutes
Total: 50 minutes
Servings: 8 bombs

Ingredients  

To Make 1 Cup of Cocoa Mix

  • 8 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 8 tablespoons white, granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 gram ground, decarbed cannabis flower
  • ¼ teaspoon ground chipotle peppers optional

To Make 8 Hot Cocoa Bombs

To Make A Single Serving

  • 1 finished hot cocoa bomb
  • 1 cup milk cannabis-infused, dairy, or plant-based

Instructions 

  • Prepare the cannabis hot cocoa mix first. In a small bowl, add the cannabis powder, cocoa powder, sugar, ground cinnamon, ground cannabis, and ground chipotle if using. Whisk well until all ingredients are well incorporated. Store in an airtight jar until ready for use.
  • Set up your workstation, so everything is ready to go when you start the process. Next, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set up your molds.
  • Fill the bottom portion of the double boiler with one cup of water. Add the top pan and place on the stove, and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat.
  • Once simmering, add the chocolate chips or wafers. Steam from the bottom pan will heat the chocolate in the top pan, allowing the chocolate to melt slowly.
  • Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted, about 5 minutes. If you're infusing the chocolate, add your infusion method of choice now. Once everything is melted and combined, turn off the heat, remove the double boiler's top portion, and set it aside.
  • Spoon the melted chocolate into the molds, making a thin coat along the wall of the entire sphere.
  • Place the molds in the freezer until the chocolate is set. 
  • Fill one half with two tablespoons of hot cocoa mix.
  • Top the same half with one tablespoon of mini marshmallows.
  • Gently dip one empty half back into the melted chocolate.
  • Bring the empty halves together with a full half carefully to seal, smoothing chocolate as necessary.
  • Garnish with any additional chocolate and toppings.
  • When ready to enjoy, place one cocoa bomb in your favorite mug and top it with warm milk to release the powder, stir and enjoy. 

Notes

  • Storage Instructions: These hot cocoa bombs are best if consumed shortly after making. However, you can store them in a refrigerator for up to 7 days in an air-tight container. Or, store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Try to keep these bombs at a cool temperature to avoid melting.
  • Important to Know: Using just decarbed cannabis flower can be a very potent method of consuming cannabis. Just one gram of 20% THC flower will contain approximately 200mg of THC – which is a lot for some people!  If you want to infuse the recipe with flower, I recommend starting with just ¼-½ teaspoon of ground, decarbed cannabis flower, and adjusting as needed to suit your individual needs. Because each person has a different endocannabinoid system and responds to cannabis differently, it is important to add an appropriate amount for your tolerance.
