It's so easy to learn to make boozy coconut rum hot chocolate bombs! These are made with coconut rum (like Malibu), but you can use your favorite liqueur too! They make the perfect gift for the holidays, and they are such a treat. Made with hot cocoa mix, melting chocolate, coconut, and coconut rum, these are a lot like an Almond Joy candy bar or even a slice of German chocolate cake - in a mug!
Place chocolate candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave per the directions on the package.
Place 1 tbsp melted candy melt into one half of a bomb mold and, using the back of your spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even. Repeat with 12 bomb mold halves.
Place the chocolate filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove molds from the freezer and gently tap the sides of the mold, pressing on one side of the chocolate to make the chocolate slid out of the mold.
In a small bowl, add the hot chocolate mix and the rum (or other liquor). Stir them until them are well combined. The consistency should be thick. If it is too thin, add some more hot chocolate powder.
Fill 6 of the molds with 2 tbsp hot chocolate and rum mix, and optionally, add 1 tbsp shredded coconut, a few almond slivers and 6-8 mini marshmallows.
Heat a plate in the microwave until the surface of the plate is warm to the touch.
Press one of the empty chocolate bomb halves open-side-down onto the flat portion of the warm plate for about 10 seconds. This will gently melt the edge of the chocolate cup.
Immediately press this warmed edge chocolate cup to the top of one of the filled cups. This will join the two halves of the hot cocoa bomb. If desired, add more of the chocolate melts to help shore-up that joint.
Using a piping bag or a fork, drizzle the remaining candy melts over the assembled hot cocoa bombs then immediately follow by adding a few almond slivers on top.
Place the hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes to get them to set, then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
To use the hot cocoa bombs, place them in a mug and pour 2 cups hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy!
