How to Make Hot Chocolate Bombs
We jumped on the hot chocolate bomb train! There are so many variations; there’s something that everyone will like! I purchased my silicone molds from Amazon. We’ve used candy melts, milk chocolate chips, and Ghirardelli’s white chocolate. I’m a big white chocolate fan, so that’s my favorite.

HOW TO VIDEO
Melt Chocolate in microwave safe dish or fondue pot.
Use spoon to apply chocolate inside of mold.
Once all of the molds have chocolate, turn the mold upside down to let the chocolate coat the mold evenly.
Place mold in freezer for 10 minutes.
Remove chocolate from mold.
Place a microwave safe plate into the microwave for 2 minutes. After it’s done, place one of the halves onto the plate to melt it a tad.
Add 1 Tablespoon of Hot Chocolate Mix, a handful of marshmallows, and any other secret ingredients. (Such as caramel, candy cane, sea salt, etc.)
Place the other half of the sphere face down onto the plate to melt the edge. Now stick both pieces together to form a ball.
Drop them into a mug and pour 8 oz hot milk or 8 oz hot water over it and watch the magic happen!
If you don’t let the bomb freeze long enough, or if it’s too thin, or, if your drizzle chocolate is too hot… your hot chocolate bombs will melt when you add your toppings. Please see exhibit A. 🙂
