How to Package Cocoa Bombs
These printables will help you wrap up your cocoa bombs like they came from a boutique. A cocoa bomb makes a yummy gift to give a friend.
Here is What you Need:
- Cellophane Bags – minimum 3″ X 3″ square bottom
- Printable Cocoa Bomb Label Red

- Ribbon or Twine
- Color Printer
- White Card-stock
- Silicone Mold

- Cocoa Bombs
A tip about bags. I found these 4″ x 4″ cellophane bags on Amazon (affiliate link) and think they would work. I was able to find the ones I used at my local craft store. The bags just need to be large enough to hold a 3″ X 3″ square and long enough to tie with a ribbon.
How to Make Cocoa Bombs
If using candy coating melt very slowly in the microwave at 30-second intervals stirring after each. When there are still small pieces of candy that haven’t melted, be patient and stir to distribute heat and finish melting. This prevents overheating and keeps your candy nice and smooth. Melting the candy coating slowly also helps it release from the mold and to stay shiny.
Paint the candy coating in the molds. It doesn’t have to be too thick, just make sure you can’t see the mold through the candy coating.
Allow to harden and then peel the mold away from the candy. I put my mold in the refrigerator for 10 minutes to speed the drying time.
Fill half the mold with hot chocolate mix and miniature marshmallows (optional) Look on your hot chocolate package to know how much to add for 1 cup of hot chocolate.
Take the other half of the mold and melt the edge of the mold on a hot plate or skillet. Be careful this takes just a second. Place the mold halves together.

It really is to wrap your cocoa bombs beautifully. First download the printable. Print in color on white cardstock. Be sure to print actual size. Cut out the labels.
With a dull knife lightly score where the card-stock should fold to make it fold easier.
You have two color options burgundy and gold and…
red and teal.
On the back of each label, you will find a little greeting and the instructions for how to us on the bottom.
What a fun and useful gift to help friends cozy at home.
A fun mug makes it even more special. My daughter is going to make cocoa bombs for all her friends.
