If you’ve scrolled through TikTok or Instagram lately, chances are you’ve seen at least one video of a chocolate bomb delightfully exploding into a warm mug of milk to create a luscious serving of hot chocolate. Filled with fluffy marshmallows, colorful candy, and all sorts of creative ingredients, not only are hot chocolate bombs delicious, but they’re also quite entertaining and satisfying to watch dissolve. Since rising in popularity over the holiday season, hot chocolate bombs have now become the ultimate Valentine’s Day treat of 2021. And while they can also be fun and satisfying to make for yourself, not everyone has the time or the tools. Luckily, there are lots of great online options for ordering hot chocolate bombs for yourself or to send to a loved one for a sweet Valentine’s Day surprise. Here are our top picks — and if you have a favorite source, let us know in the comments!

This set of five very fancy-looking hot chocolate bombs features bombs in two flavors: fudge brownie and caramel candy. They're neatly wrapped in metallic foil and packaged in a gift-ready box for secure shipping. Plus, they're Amazon's number one release for 2021 and have already racked up rave reviews.

Etsy is an excellent source for handmade hot chocolate bombs from a variety of makers. We love these modern heart-shaped bombs from LoveleeCookies, which are available in five different flavors and are packaged individually with pretty ribbons and a "You're The Bomb!" tag attached. It doesn't get cuter than this!

Vosges Chocolate

If you've never tried Vosges' "haut" chocolate, you should know that it truly lives up to its name. Made with high-quality ingredients, their confections are some of the best out there, and Las Bombalinas also won't disappoint. They're made with 62-percent cacao ganache, Italian hazelnuts, and a layer of dulce de leche. While not meant to be dissolved in warm milk, the 23-karat gold leaf on top of each one provides enough of a visual show.

Another great Etsy find, this pack of six hot chocolate bombs includes milk, dark, and white chocolate bombs decorated especially for Valentine's Day. They're handmade in Miami with Ghirardelli chocolate and packed in a festive gift box.

Uncommon Goods

While they're technically not bombs, these hot chocolate sticks get points for quality. They're handmade in California with couverture chocolate, which has a higher percentage of cocoa butter for a superior flavor and creamier texture when melted. You can choose from Belgian milk chocolate or French dark chocolate — but I say go with both and enjoy!

Neiman Marcus

Carla the Snowman is so adorable, kids might think it's a shame to melt her in a pot of warm milk. But once they find out her belly is full of peppermint cocoa and her head is filled with mini marshmallows, they probably won't mind so much. While she seems pricey at first glance, Carla is actually big enough to serve at least eight people.

This pack of six chocolate bombs would be great for families since they're gluten free, nut free, and don't have any unexpected ingredients inside. These are simply filled with mini marshmallows for a classic hot chocolate experience, but iHuggs also makes premium chocolate bombs in specialty flavors if you're looking for something a bit more adventurous.

SugarMommaCookieCo's Etsy shop offers a wide selection of beautiful bombs starting at $6.50, and there are lots of creative flavors to choose from. The Lucky Charm Hot Chocolate Bomb would be a great choice for kids or a nostalgic one for adults since it's filled with everyone's favorite cereal marshmallows, but we're personally eyeing this Cream Banana Pudding bomb that sounds simply divine.
