Do these hot cocoa bombs really contain alcohol?

Absolutely. These cocoa bombs will make a yummy cup of spiked hot chocolate.

Think of them as a treat for aging. While the alcohol content isn’t high, it is in there so these aren’t appropriate for kids or anyone under the age of 21.

How To Make Irish Cream Hot Cocoa Bombs

Once you have all the ingredients listed above, it’s time to get started! Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Step 1

Before anything, take a plate and put it in the freezer.

Step 2

Add the chocolate wafers to a microwave-safe bowl and put them in the microwave. Heat in 30-second intervals until melted all the way through. Stir between each heating time.

Step 3

Add the melted chocolate to the molds. Spread out the chocolate to cover completely, even the sides. Once done pop in the freezer for 5 minutes. Take out and add another layer of chocolate after that time has passed then put it back in the freezer for another 5 minutes.

Step 7

Put a small plate in the microwave and heat it for 2 minutes.

Step 8

Once done, take one of the sphere halves and put it upside down on the heated plate. This will start to melt the rim. Add about 1.5 tablespoons of the cocoa and Irish Cream mix to the sphere.

Step 9

Place the other sphere on top and hold them together. If you need to add a bit of melted chocolate on the edges to help them stick, do so.

Suggestions and Tips

If you’re wanting to make an alcohol-free version, just leave out the Irish Creme and add in some marshmallows or something else delicious.

To use this cocoa bomb, just add to your favorite mug and pour 6 ounces of hot milk over the top. It’ll melt away the outer layer of chocolate, releasing all the goodness. Just stir and enjoy a delicious mug of Irish cream hot chocolate!
