How to make hot chocolate bombs

  1. I like to cut each mold out individually because I think they are easier to work with the mold when working with the melted chocolate.
  2. Use a paper towel or clean kitchen towel and wipe the inside of the silicone molds. This will allow your chocolate mold to have a shiny coat on it.
  3. Add the Ghirardelli melting wafers to a heat-safe bowl. Place in the microwave for 45-second intervals. Make sure to stir the chocolate after each interval until completely melted and smooth
  4. Using a spoon, spoon about 1-2 tablespoons of the chocolate into the mold. Slowly swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold. Gently shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl
  5. Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened chocolate shell.
  6. Carefully place the mold onto the cookie sheet and repeat steps with remaining molds. You should now have 8 half-sphere molds
  7. Scoop some of the melted chocolate into the piping bag and cut the tip.

To Assemble The Cocoa Bomb:

Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold. Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows. Sprinkle in a few of the crushed peppermint candy

Pipe a line of the melted chocolate around the edge of the bottom shell.

Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped chocolate to harden to the top shell.

Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells.

Place the mold back onto the cookie sheet. Drizzle chocolate over the mold

Sprinkle crushed peppermint candy and mini chocolate chips on top

Allow to harden before enjoying!
