I’ve been wanting to give these a try for a long time so finally decided to give them a go. It was kind of a nightmare. It took me almost 3 hours to make 10 and the whole kitchen was a disaster. So I guess unless you’re really a foodie and want to give it a go, then go for it otherwise I think I’d just buy them. They were quite delicious though!
First you need a mold. This is the one I got from Hobby Lobby. Right now it is on sale for $5!
1 bag Wilton chocolate candy melts
hot chocolate mix, I bought a big container of the Stephen’s brand at Sam’s Club
1 bag mini marshmallows
1 Melt candy melts according to package directions. Using a small spoon, coat the inside of each cavity in the mold with the melted chocolate, making sure to cover whole mold with none of the mold showing through the chocolate. Put in fridge for about 5 minutes or until chocolate is set. Remove mold from fridge and do a second coating of chocolate, mostly on the edge of each half circle. Place back in fridge for another 5 minutes.
2 Carefully remove halves from the mold. (I wore food handler’s gloves for the rest of the this process because if you handle the chocolate without gloves, it ruins that nice shine on the bombs.) Fill one half with hot chocolate mix (my mold held about 2 tablespoons of mix) and the other half with mini marshmallows.
3 “Paint” a line of chocolate all along the edge of the marshmallow side then quickly and carefully press the two sides together to form a ball, do this over a plate or piece of paper towel because the hot chocolate mix will spill out a little. Now paint another line over the seam to seal it and then quickly and carefully sprinkle with your choice of holiday sprinkles. Let sit until chocolate seam has set.
4 To use the bombs, heat 1 – 2 cups of milk (depending on how chocolatey you like your hot chocolate) in the microwave until steamy and hot enough to melt chocolate. Place the bomb in a mug and pour milk over it. Stir to mix all ingredients together.
