Recently a friend of mine shared a video of these delicious looking balls of magic called hot chocolate bombs and I was amazed!! So I decided to try and make some of my own. 👍🏻 Now normally, I’m not super handy in the kitchen when it comes to super fancy little treats. But these ones looked so fun and “not too hard” so I thought I’d give it a try. And BOY am I glad I did!!
Basically you melt some chocolate and spread it in a silicone ball mold. I used some mint chocolate melts and a mold I got at Hobby Lobby. I was hoping for a slightly smaller and all plain ball mold, but they didn’t have any, so I ended up with these really big super frilly flower molds, but they work. After you spread the melted chocolate around in the molds, place them in the freezer for 30 mins to harden.
Once they are hard, take them out of the mold. Fill the bottom half with your hot chocolate mix and mini marshmallows. I used Peppermint Hot Chocolate Mix and a few crushed candy canes.
Then rub the rim of the top mold around on a hot plate to melt it slightly, and place it over the bottom. Run a hot spoon around the seam to melt them together completely. And PRESTO! You’ve just made a hot chocolate bomb!! 😮
Simply place a bomb in your mug and cover with steamed milk, or in my case COFFEE, and watch the chocolate shell melt and the marshmallow magic come popping out. 💕Stir well and enjoy!💕
