Lemon Meringue Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe

This unique hot chocolate bomb recipe is a fun mash-up of two of our family’s favorites.

We LOVE lemon desserts and hot chocolate bombs are a staple in our house every winter so it was only a matter of time before we decided to combine the two!

The result is a rich, creamy and delicious mug of white hot chocolate with a bright lemon punch of flavor. The addition of marshmallows makes it almost like a lemon meringue hot chocolate.

The lemon meringue flavor is achieved by using a lemon-flavored candy melt and a white hot chocolate mix, however you can use plain or yellow candy melts and just add a dash of lemon flavor oil to the white chocolate mix to impart the lemon flavor, if desired.

The Lemon KitKats make for a fun addition to these lemon hot chocolate bombs and they are available on Amazon, however, if you want to make these bombs without the Lemon KitKats, you can make the bombs plain or add any favorite lemon treat to garnish the top or even just some candied lemon peel or lemon-themed sprinkles.

How to Use a Hot Chocolate Bomb:

You can use your hot chocolate bomb two ways:

  • Place the hot chocolate bomb in a mug and pour warm milk overtop
  • Place the hot chocolate bomb in a mug already filled with warm milk

The warm milk will slowly melt the chocolate sphere, enhancing the chocolatey flavor of the cocoa while releasing the powdered cocoa, sprinkles and marshmallows inside of the bomb.

How to Make Lemon Hot Chocolate Bombs

Place yellow candy melts in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave per the directions on the package.

Place 1 tbsp melted candy melts into each cavity of the half-sphere mold and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even and ensuring that the edges are not thin. (Repeat for all 12 half-spheres.)

Reserve remaining candy melts for drizzling over the finished bombs.

Place the candy melt-filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.

Cut the Lemon Kit Kats in half.

Remove molds from the freezer and gently peel the silicone mold away from the lemon half-spheres.

Fill 6 of the half-spheres with 1 Tablespoon of white hot chocolate mix, 1 half stick of a Kit Kat and 6-8 mini marshmallows.

To seal the hot chocolate bombs, you can either place the edge of the empty spheres against a hot plate for 10 seconds and then carefully place on top of the filled spheres, or just place the empty sphere on top of the filled sphere and pipe some melted candy melts along where the two edges meet to seal the hot cocoa bombs.

Pipe the remaining candy melts over the finished candy melts and garnish with another half lemon KitKat bar.

Place the hot chocolate 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.
