Where to Find the Best Hot Chocolate Bombs in Houston

set of three hot chocolate bombs A warm, homemade cup of hot chocolate is hard to beat, and it is a holiday tradition that I have enjoyed sharing with my children. A fairly new novelty that my kiddos and I have been crushing on lately is hot chocolate bombs! Created in December 2019 by Eric Torres-Garcia, this fun alternative to traditional hot chocolate mix went viral quickly. Lots of retailers have jumped on the hot chocolate bomb bandwagon; here are our top local picks listed below:

  1. The Sweet Boutique Bakery– Founder and owner Christine Nguyen (and former Houston Moms contributor!) carries several different flavors of hot cocoa bombs at her retail location in Sugar Land, Texas. I have personally sampled these bombs and they are, well, the bomb {c’mon, you saw that bad joke coming from a mile away}. These sell out fast, so don’t wait on them!Rows of The Sweet Boutique hot chocolate bombs
  2. Trader Joe’s Hot Cocoa Snowman– this adorable cocoa snowman is a steal at $1.99! Apparently these guys sell out quickly, so there is a limit of five snowmen per customer. Psst! Pro tip: a local Trader Joe’s store informed me that these would be released sometime in the first week of December.

  3. Local chef Allison Hartley serves up seasonal cocoa bombs via her website, sweetsavorygirl.com. These are special order items and are available individually or as a boxed set.
  4. On your next weekly H-E-B run, be on the lookout for Hot Chocolate BevBombs! My local store had them in the drugstore area and there were so many different varieties to choose from. Each package comes with 4 individually wrapped bombs that can be dropped in a cup of hot milk or coffee and I heard from a friend that they are delish!

  5. Choc 52 offers Houston area pick up and drop off for locals {Pearland based}. Their bombs are made to order and always fresh! They’re currently serving some seasonal favorites: peppermint chocolate, eggnog, gingerbread, and pumpkin spice bombs!
  6. On my latest trip to the new Costco business center in Stafford, Texas, I spied a GIANT package of Bom Bombs. This amazing set can be split into four gifts to share or it can also be 20 servings of hot chocolate hoarded all for yourself. I know the regular warehouses carried these last year, too, so keep your eyes peeled. package of BomBombs
