Instructions

  • Place the silicone mold on a flat, moveable surface like a tray or cutting board.
  • Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe container like a glass measuring cup and microwave at 50% power in 30-second intervals, stirring in between each time. Mine took about 2 full minutes total.
  • Add a heaping tablespoon of melted chocolate to each well of the silicone mold.
  • Using a small rubber spatula, offset spatula, or back of a spoon, spread the chocolate up the sides of the mold until completely coated.
  • Wait about 5 minutes for the chocolate to cool a bit and then divide the remaining chocolate between all of the wells and spread it around to give each of them a thicker coat. You want the chocolate to be thick, especially around the top edges.
  • Place the mold, while on the tray in the freezer for the chocolate to set for at least 30 minutes.
  • Once the chocolate has set, remove from the freezer. Give a little tug around the silicone mold to help release the chocolate. Then carefully use your fingers to push the chocolate cup out of the mold. Place the chocolate cups on a plate.
  • Place the drink mix, marshmallows, and any other add-ins you are including in 3 of the chocolate cups.
  • Working quickly (so your fingers don't melt the chocolate), place one of the empty cups open-side down on a hot plate to melt the edges a bit. Then place it on the filled half of the sphere and press lightly.
  • Melt the decorating chocolate the same way you melted the chocolate for the spheres and then transfer it to a piping bag or decorating squeeze bottle.
  • Pipe a thin ribbon of chocolate around the seam of the spheres and then smooth it out with your finger.
  • Then drizzle the melted chocolate over the tops of the bombs and sprinkle with decorations.
  • Allow the chocolate to set before moving.
  • Keep refrigerated or frozen until ready to use.

To make the hot chocolate

  • Place the bomb in an empty mug and top with 8 ounces of hot milk. Stir well before enjoying it.

Notes

*The easiest way to heat the plate is to run it under hot water.
*If the chocolate isn't melting well, add about 1 tsp of coconut oil and stir.
*You can add additional toppings like whipped cream, additional marshmallows, and sprinkles if desired.
