NOTE – If using powdered Stevia or Splenda, the chocolate mixture will get grainy. When the chocolate moulds are set and the bombs are removed from the moulds, they still had a shiny appearance, even though the mixture was grainy going into the mould. If possible, use liquid stevia.

Making sugar-free hot chocolate bombs using sugar-free chocolate chips

If you are using sugar-free chocolate chips instead of making chocolate from scratch, melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave. Use about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips for 6 moulds (or 3 bombs).

Melting the chocolate chips – 2 methods

Microwave method

  • Put your chocolate peces or chips onto a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on half power (50 %) for 30-second intervals.
  • Stir in between intervals.
  • When the chocolate pieces or chips are almost completely melted, stir until the remaining chocolate is melted.

Stove-top method

  • Bring water in a double boiler pan to a simmer
  • If you don’t have a double boiler, use a heat-proof bowl that is big enough to sit on top of a small or medium-sized saucepan.
  • place chocolate into the top pan of a double boiler or into a heatproof bowl.
  • place on top of the pan with simmering water.
  • Stir continuously while the chocolate melts.
  • just before all the chocolate is melted, removed the pan or bowl from the heat.
  • Continue to stir until chocolate is melted.

** Be careful to not let any water get into your melting chocolate as it will cause your chocolate to seize.

Making the Sugar-free hot chocolate bombs using silicone moulds.

  • Place your silicone chocolate moulds on a baking tray. (this makes it easier to move them to the refrigerator)
  • Drop about a tablespoon of melted chocolate into the bottom of the cavity of the chocolate bomb mold.
  • Using the back of your spoon, pull the chocolate up the sides of the mold.
  • Work your way around the mould until the sides and bottom are completely covered.\
  • ** If chocolate is running down the sides, allow to cool a couple of minutes and continue.
  • Once all the moulds are covered, place the baking tray into the freezer for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Removed from the freezer and carefully remove chocolate shells from the silicone moulds.

Assembling the Sugar-free Hot chocolate moulds

  • Heat a non-stick frying pan, just enough to make the surface hot and remove it from the heat.
  • smooth edged of chocolate bomb half
  • Holding one of the chocolate shells, gently rub the edges. on the warm pan. This will melt the edge enough to smooth it out, making a nice seam around the bomb.
  • Place 2 tables spoons of the sugar-free hot chocolate mix into one half of a chocolate bomb shell.
  • Add a few mini marshmallows ( I added 4 cuts in half to make 8 mini marshmallows)
  • Take the top shell and smooth the edges in the hot pan and while the edges are warm, attach to the bottom half of the shell.
  • Dip your finger into the melted chocolate and take a small amount and rub it around the seam of the chocolate bomb.
  • Place on a baking tray.
  • Repeat until all the bombs are assembled.
  • Place into the refrigerator to set the seams.
  • Sprinkle with cocoa powder, or for a snow-like look, dust on some Splenda or powdered Stevia.
  • Another option is to drizzle with melted chocolate or brush on a little melted chocolate onto the top and sprinkle with sugar-free peppermint
