Hot Chocolate Bombs are delcious chocolate spheres that can come in a variety of flavours full of cocoa mix, marshmallows, sprinkles & more! Spilling open when hot milk is poured over them, making for a fun surprise inside!
Place your mould on a flat, moveable surface such as a cutting board or tray.
Place the chocolate melts in a microwave-safe container and microwave at 50% power in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate is melted. It may take a couple of minutes.
Once melted, add a heaping tablespoon of the melted chocolate into each of the moulds. Spread the chocolate around the mould, making sure to go up the sides.
Let it sit for a couple of minutes, then spread a second coat of chocolate in the wells, especially on the sides to give it a thicker coat. The chocolate needs to be thick, especially on the top edges where the two semi circles are going to be joined together.
Place the mould and tray into the freezer and give the chocolate about 30 minutes to set.
Once set, remove from the freezer and release the chocolate bowls from the silicone moulds, carefully placing them on a plate once released.
Working quickly so that the chocolate doesn't melt, place a couple of teaspoons of the hot chocolate drink mix as well as the rest of your mix-ins that you are adding into half of the chocolate moulds.
Heat a plate for a few seconds in the microwave or under hot water and then place one of the empty chocolate cups upside down on it to melt the edges a bit. Place this on one of the filled half chocolate cups and press lightly.
You can either use a hot knife to slowly go around the seam, melting it together as you go or you could melt extra decorating chocolate in the microwave, transfer it to a piping bag and pipe a thin ribbon of chocolate around the seam, smoothing it with your finger.
Place the chocolate spheres on a wire cooling rack and drizzle with melted chocolate and sprinkle with decorations. Allow to set for a couple of minutes before placing the bombs in the fridge or freeze to set completely.
Keep refrigerated or frozen until ready to use.
To Use the Hot Chocolate Bomb
