Dairy Free Hot Chocolate Bombs
These dairy free hot chocolate bombs are a delicious winter treat - no dairy necessary! Prep Time 25 minutes Cook Time 0 minutes Total Time 25 minutes Servings 3 servings Calories 395 kcal Author Dairy Free for Baby Ingredients: For dairy-free hot chocolate bombs:
3/4 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips (I, Lindsay, use Enjoy Life because they are also nut free for Miss Brynn - and they melt well)
3 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
6 tsp granulated sugar
3 tbsp mini marshmallows (vegan if desired)
1 1/4 cups warm sweetened vanilla almond milk (or vanilla oat milk)
Place the dairy free chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave the chocolate in 30-second intervals, stirring each time, until fully melted.
Pour a spoonful of chocolate into each cavity of the silicone dome mold. Use a spoon to spread the chocolate, coating the entire half circle.
Place the mold in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until the chocolate is solid. Gently press on the bottom of the mold to pop out each dome.
You should have six domes. Take three of them to fill. To each of those three, add 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder, 2 teaspoons of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of marshmallows.
Heat a skillet over medium heat for a minute, just to get it warm (not overly hot). Take one of the empty domes and hold it on the skillet for a second or two, just to melt the edge. Immediately place that on top of one of the filled domes. The melted edge will seal with the chocolate on the filled dome, forming a complete circle.
Repeat with the remaining domes to finish making all three hot chocolate bombs.
When you’re ready to serve one, heat 1 1/4 cups of vanilla almond milk. You can do this on the stovetop or in the microwave. For the microwave, place it in a microwave safe cup and heat for about 1:30 to 2 minutes. (Be careful, cup may be hot when removing from the microwave).
Either place the hot chocolate bomb in a mug and pour the hot almond milk on top, or drop the hot chocolate bomb into the mug with the hot almond milk (being careful not to splash any of the hot liquid). Enjoy!
The nutrition analysis is based on using 2/3 cup of chocolate, as that’s generally the amount that is actually consumed. It’s helpful to use the 3/4 cup to melt though so you have extra as needed to seal holes or build up edges (or if you have larger molds).
If you have a piping bag, you can also pipe melted chocolate on the half circles and connect them that way.
