I love a good hot chocolate and after my festive-themed Easy Vegan Hot Chocolate Bombs, I wanted to make another recipe. Instead of dark chocolate, this time, I have gone for white chocolate which makes the drink deliciously sweet, but not too sweet. They are filled with all the best bits of a hot chocolate and they are so fun to make.

What ingredients go into these Vegan White Hot Chocolate Bombs?

The recipe is very simple:

  • White chocolate: make sure it is dairy-free. While there are not too many bars or buttons in the UK, supermarket own brand dairy-free white chocolate is really good and there are a few brands that offer a white chocolate alternative.
  • Milk or dark chocolate: or use chocolate shavings. Chop the chocolate small, almost like you’d grate it to fill inside the chocolate shells. Or use a sugar-cocoa mix like here.
  • Marshmallows: mini is best as these are mini hot chocolate bombs. Make sure these are vegan and free of animal gelatine.
  • Sprinkles: just for fun! I like thee Baking Time Club sprinkles as they are all vegan and gluten-free.

How do I make these hot chocolate bombs?

The method is very easy and involves a silicone mould.

  • Chill the moulds: this helps the chocolate shells to set more quickly.
  • Melt the white chocolate: and brush into the moulds.
  • Allow the chocolate to set: and then repeat this process to make the shells harder.
  • Remove the shells from the mould: work carefully so they don’t break at the edges.
  • Fill half of the shells with the chocolate shavings: or other chocolate you are using.
  • Warm a palette knife: and run along the edge of the other shells and press on top of the hot chocolate filled ones so they seal together.
  • Decorate as you like: I chose extra melted chocolate and sprinkles.

Are these hot chocolate bombs gluten-free and nut-free?

Yes they are just check your chocolate for gluten and nuts. Also some sprinkles are not vegan or gluten-free, so watch out for those.

How else can I fill these bombs?

You can use a sugar-cocoa mix here as I used for my other hot chocolate bombs, or try using small chocolate chips instead. Anything goes when it comes to filling them and I know some people like to use some coconut milk powder which makes the hot chocolate even creamier.

How long will these Vegan White Hot Chocolate Bombs last?

These will keep for up to 1-2 weeks in the fridge but once they meet the warm milk, they don’t hang around for long!
