Things You'll Need:

  • 2 cups of chocolate chips or melting chocolate wafers

  • 4 tbsp of hot cocoa mix

  • 4 tbsp of mini marshmallows

  • Half circle silicone mold

  • Pastry brush


How To Make:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave.

  2. Use 15 second bursts, stirring in between until everything is smooth and easy to handle.

  3. Using a pastry brush, push the melted chocolate around the molds, making it thick enough along the sides and edges.

  4. Place the molds into the freezer for 5-10 minutes or in the fridge for 30 minutes to set.

  5. A couple of minutes into them setting, take them out and brush/spoon extra chocolate on the top edges to make it thicker.

  6. Let set completely, then carefully pop the chocolate dome out of the mold and set aside on a cold plate.

  7. Microwave an empty plate for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until warm.

  8. Take one chocolate half-circle and place it on the plate for a couple of seconds to melt the edges.

  9. Working quickly, flip it around and add 1 tablespoon hot cocoa powder and mini marshmallows and any other add-ins you want.

  10. Take another dome and melt its edge on the warm plate.

  11. Join the two domes together into a sphere and hold until sealed.

  12. Let set in the fridge or freezer while you make the rest of your spheres.



To Serve:

  • In a mug, pour warm milk (or hot chocolate, if you like it extra chocolate-y).

  • Drop your Hot Chocolate bomb into the mug.

  • Watch everything melt.

  • Stir and enjoy!
