Valentine Hot Chocolate Bombs
- 4 oz white candy melts or baking chips
- 3 tbsp cocoa mix
- ¼ cup mini marshmallows
- 1-2 oz pink candy melts
- Valentine’s sprinkles
- Semi Sphere Silicone Mold
1. Set a plate in the freezer
2. Place the candy melt in a heat-safe glass or metal bowl (I use a Pyrex bowl), and fill a pot with about 1-2 inches of water. Make sure the bowl can fit over the pot, without touching the water.
3. Heat pot with bowl over it on low/medium heat. Chocolate will start to melt in about 5-10 minutes.
4. Once the chocolate starts melting, scrape the sides of the bowl, using a rubber spatula.
5. Continue scraping until all chocolate is melted.
6. Remove bowl from pot and place on hot pad or trinket.
7. Add about 1-2 tsp of melted chocolate to each half-sphere of the mold, using a spoon or brush to spread it, covering the entire half-sphere, making sure you get the sides really good.
8. Place chocolate-filled mold in the freezer for 5 minutes.
9. Remove mold from the freezer, and repeat steps 7 and 8.
10. Remove mold and the plate from the freezer, and unmold the chocolate spheres. Place them on the cold plate. This will be your work area.
11. Add 1 tbsp of hot cocoa mix to 3 of the chocolate spheres. Top with about 6-8 mini marshmallows.
12. Heat a small plate in the microwave for 2 minutes.
13. Place an empty half-sphere upside down on the plate to let the edges soften. Place it on top of one of the filled half-spheres, and smooth out the edges with your finger. You can rub a little extra melted chocolate around it if need be. Do this with the remaining spheres.
14. In a very small bowl, heat the pink candy melts for about 30 seconds and stir very well until completely melted.
15. Spoon melted candy into a piping bag or baggie, and cut the tip.
16. Pipe melted pink candy on the top of the hot cocoa bombs, and immediately add sprinkles.
17. To use, place in a mug with 6 oz of hot milk. You may add more cocoa to the mug if you desire.
Hot chocolate bombs are an excellent gift idea for friends, neighbors, teachers, and almost ANYONE!
