Learn how to make a vegan friendly ‘The Snowdog’ Hot Chocolate Bomb.
‘The Snowdog’ Hot Chocolate Bomb’s are perfect for Christmas baking as they’re so much fun to make and decorate.
This magically delicious hot chocolate bomb is made with a dairy-free white chocolate shell, creamy vegan Horlicks powder, mini vanilla vegan marshmallows, and snowflake sprinkles, for extra magic. Kids will love decorating their hot chocolate bomb’s into ‘The Snowdog’ – I sure did!
What is a Hot Chocolate Bomb?
Firstly, if you’re yet to jump on the hot chocolate bomb train (which has been circulating on social media for over a year now), it’s basically a round chocolate sphere, created using a silicone mould, filled with hot chocolate powder and marshmallows. Secondly, these can be left plain or decorated for special occasions and holidays.
I made these hot chocolate bombs in collaboration with my dear friend ‘Sheri Wilson’ over on Instagram. We wanted to make something together for Christmas, and I came up with the idea of creating a ‘The Snowdog’ to match my previous ‘The Snowman’.
I love how they both turned out. She is the HOT CHOCOLATE BOMB QUEEN! She inspires me so much with her festive recipes and fun, unique twist on bakes! Check out her matching hot chocolate bomb here!
Make sure to check out her Instagram (you’ll fall in love!).
Can I tell you what makes my hot chocolate bomb’s better than the rest? They’re 100% vegan! You’ll want to make hot chocolate’s all the time after trying these, trust me!

It’s not Christmas without having ‘The Snowman and The Snowdog’ playing on TV is it? It’s a film which makes me feel extremely happy and festive. As soon as I hear the ‘party music’ from The Snowman party scene in the film, I know it’s Christmas time!
‘The Snowman and The Snowdog’ is extremely sentimental to me. I lost Tiggy (my cat and best friend of 18 years) in 2020 and it was always a film we would watch together at Christmas time. Tiggy even had a ‘The Snowdog and Snowdog’ blanket, toys and a personalised ‘The Snowdog’ food bowl. I bought me and him matching ‘The Snowman and Snowdog’ plushies too – adorable I know!
Last year, I made ‘The Snowman Hot Chocolate Bombs’ inspired hot chocolate bombs which EXPLODED (pun intended) on social media, especially Instagram & Pinterest…so it was only right I make ‘The Snowdog’ to match!
This ‘The Snowdog’ Hot Chocolate Bomb contains a dairy-free chocolate sphere, vegan marshmallows and vegan Horlicks powder. I decided to opt for vegan Horlick’s malt powder as opposed to instant hot chocolate or a coffee powder to keep with the ‘white, snowy theme’, but you’re more than welcome to substitute the malt power with your favourite dairy-free hot chocolate of choice.
Not only does it contain Horlick’s in the hidden centre, but as it’s ‘snow’ themed, I added in a couple of snowflake sprinkles.
Sprinkles are not necessary and I wouldn’t want to drink sprinkles in my hot chocolate all the time, but on this occasion and as it’s Christmas, they’re a fun addition!
