Cookies and cream has long been one of my favorite dessert flavors, whether it’s a candy bar, ice cream or an actual cookie. It just made sense to create a delicious cookies and cream hot chocolate.

I love hot cocoa of any kind and I definitely have my favorites. Homemade hot chocolate bombs have become my new go-to.

They may have become a bit of a fad over the past year or two but I have to say, I LOVE IT. I love watching the chocolate melt and all the treats inside being released into the drink. I love the flexibility in flavors. Plus, they’re so easy to make!

Making Cookies and Cream Hot Chocolate Bombs

Cookies and Cream Hot Chocolate Bombs take the basic hot chocolate bomb recipe, of a chocolate truffle filled with hot cocoa mix (and sometimes marshmallows) and adds mini sandwich cookies.

When you pour hot milk over one of these, the truffle explodes, releasing the hot cocoa mix and cookies. Stir with a spoon for a few seconds and the end result is a delicious, decadent drink that can double as dessert. Enjoy it at any time of the day, as I do!

Tips and Tricks

  • Use a silicone chocolate mold for best results. Plastic or metal molds have less flexibility and the chocolate is more likely to break or stick.
  • If you can’t find the mini sandwich cookies, use regular-sized ones, crushing them before adding to the sphere.
  • Load these hot chocolate truffles up with hot cocoa, marshmallows and mini chocolate sandwich cookies but don’t overfill. You want the top half to seal completely.

Ingredients

To Make Cookies and Cream Hot Chocolate Bombs

  • 6 ounces white* baking chocolate, chopped (or 1 cup chocolate chips)
  • 6 TBSP hot cocoa mix
  • 3 dozen mini marshmallows (just under 1/2 cup)
  • 6 mini chocolate sandwich cookies, like Oreos

Optional Garnish

  • 1.5 ounces white* baking chocolate, chopped (or 1/4 cup chocolate chips)
  • 6 mini chocolate sandwich cookies, like Oreos - crushed

To Make Into Hot Chocolate

  • 1 Cookies and Cream hot chocolate bomb
  • 1 cup hot milk

Instructions

To Make Cookies and Cream Hot Chocolate Bombs

  1. STOVETOP: Create a double boiler by setting a bowl over a pot of boiling water. Place 6 ounces chopped white baking chocolate, (or 1 cup chocolate chips) into the top bowl. Stir often until chocolate is melted. MICROWAVE: Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Heat the chips on high in 15 second intervals stopping between each interval to stir. Continue to heat until chocolate is melted.
  2. Add a large spoonful of the melted chocolate into each of the 6 cavities in your silicone chocolate bomb mold. Smooth the chocolate up the sides of the mold with the back of a spoon making sure to completely coat the sides of each cavity.
  3. Refrigerate or freeze for a few minutes to set.
  4. Reheat the chocolate if necessary, then repeat the process by adding another spoonful of melted chocolate into each of the chilled mold cavities. Return the mold to the refrigerator or freezer to set.
  5. Remove the half rounds of set chocolate from the molds. Don't force them! They should come out pretty easily.
  6. Fill each of the three bottom half rounds with 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix, 12 mini marshmallows, and 2 mini chocolate sandwich cookies.
  7. STOVETOP: Heat a plate over the pot of boiling water until warm enough to melt chocolate. MICROWAVE: Heat a microwave safe plate for a few seconds, until warm enough to melt chocolate.
  8. Working with one bomb at a time, press one of the top half rounds against the heated plate to slightly melt the rim. Place the empty half round over the filled bottom half round to seal. Repeat with the remaining two chocolate bombs.
  9. If your seams are not tight enough or if they look messy, warm a spoon (dipping it in the hot water or run it under a hot faucet) then run back of the spoon along the seam to melt the chocolate and seal the edge.
  10. OPTIONAL: Crush the extra chocolate sandwich cookies. Heat the extra 1.5 ounce white chocolate (1/4 cup chips) using the same method as step 1. Use a fork to drizzle the melted chocolate over the filled chocolate bombs then roll in the crushes chocolate sandwich cookies. Return to the refrigerator or freezer to fully set.

To Make Into Hot Chocolate

  1. Heat the milk either on the stovetop or in the microwave, being careful not to burn or scald it.
  2. Place one hot chocolate bomb into you favorite large cup or mug. Pour the hot milk over the ball. The hot chocolate bomb should burst open, releasing the hot cocoa, marshmallows, cookies and cream. Stir until smooth and enjoy.

Notes

*You can swap the types of chocolate however you desire. Cookies and Cream also tastes great with semi-sweet, milk or dark chocolate.
