Cocoa Bomb Recipe

Place 3 cups of chocolate melts in a microwave-safe bowl, heat on 50% power in the microwave for 3-5 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until melted. Slowly melting the chocolate will help it release from the mold and keep it shiny.

Use a spoon to scoop the melted chocolate into the half circles on the silicone mold, one at a time. Spread the chocolate evenly onto the sides and bottom of the mold until completely coated in melted chocolate. Do the same to all 6 half circles.

Place the silicone molds into the freezer for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the freezer and add a second layer of melted chocolate to the half circles of the molds, especially on the edges.

Freeze again for another couple of minutes until the chocolate is completely set. Carefully stretch the silicone molds to remove the half-circles from the mold.

Food-safe gloves can help minimize fingerprints. Another tip is to make sure hands are cool this will also help from leaving fingerprints.

Add 1 packet of hot cocoa mix to 1 side of the chocolate half, x 3 if you are making 3 hot cocoa bombs. Keep chocolate shells from moving by placing the silicone chocolate mold upside down and placing the rounded sides in between the molds as a stand while filling.

You can add mini marshmallows if you like.

Reheat the chocolate if it has hardened and add about 4 tablespoons to a decorating bag.
Cut a small tip off the decorating bag and frost the edge of one half chocolate circle. Carefully and quickly add an empty chocolate circle on top to make a sphere and hold it in place for 15 seconds or until the chocolate has acted like glue and hardened.
