Hot Chocolate Bombs

Valentine's Hot Chocolate Bombs filled with cocoa mix and mini marshmallows and covered with pink and white icing and sprinkles. So fun and so delicious.
Prep Time 45 mins
Servings 6 Bombs

Equipment

  • Dome silicone mold
  • Craft Brush or Pastry brush (1/4 inch)

Ingredients
  

  • 12 Ounces White Chocolate candy melts
  • 12 tbsp Hot cocoa mix 2 Tbsp per bomb
  • 6 tbsp Mini marshmallows 1 Tbsp per bomb
  • Optional: Sprinkles

Instructions
 

  • Make sure your molds are clean by polishing them with a paper towel
  • Place 3/4 of the chocolate candy melts in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave at 50% power for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until melted.
  • Add a teaspoon of the melted chocolate into the mold.  I found the easiest way to spread the chocolate was with a Craft Paint Brush.  (New and never used)  Paint a layer of chocolate using a paintbrush on the inside of the mold.
  • Make sure to check the chocolate covered surface from all angles to ensure there aren’t any holes.

Place into the fridge for 5 minutes to set.

  • Apply a second coat of chocolate just like you did the first time. Make sure you are spreading the chocolate all the way to the edges. You don’t want a fragile edge or they will break!
    Place the chocolate mold into the fridge to set for five minutes.
  • Carefully take your chocolate out of the molds and place it on parchment paper.
  • Heat a pan over low heat. Take one empty sphere and place it onto the surface of the pan to melt and smooth the edge.  This takes about 2 seconds.
  • Fill the heated half-sphere with 2 tablespoons of your favorite hot chocolate mix and one tablespoon of mini marshmallows.
  • Take another sphere and melt its edge, join the two spheres together and hold until sealed.
    Let set in the fridge or freezer while you make the rest of your spheres.
  • Melt the remaining chocolate as instructed above.
    Drizzle melted white candy melts over the bombs I used food coloring to change the color of the frosting. Cover with sprinkles immediately.
  • Place the chocolate bomb into a mug. Slowly pour about 1 1/2 cups of hot milk over the bomb.
