The men have been charged in connection with the incident at a pizza take-away in Knaresborough on October 16 2013.
Armed police stormed onto the streets of Knaresborough after the hoax call last year, shutting down roads and locking down a local school.
A 23-year-old man from the Chapeltown area of Leeds has been charged with three offences of communicating a bomb hoax.
A 22-year-old man, also from the Chapeltown area, has been charged with perverting the course of justice and making a false statement to obtain insurance.
Both men are due to appear at Harrogate Magistrates’ Court on June 3 2014.
