hot chocolate bombs with a cup of milk

 

Hot chocolate bombs or cocoa bombs are now the rage all over the internet so we just had to try making them.   Chocolate Bombs are hollow balls of chocolate that are filled with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows.  When you place one in your cup and pour hot milk over it, the cocoa bombs burst open and release the marshmallows and cocoa.  And with a few stirs you can have a very special cup of rich hot chocolate.

We were a little intimated to make hot chocolate bombs with marshmallows at first.   But after we jumped in, it was easier than we thought and it’s so much fun.    

 

What is in Hot Chocolate Bombs:

Now you can coat your silicone molds, making sure that all of the sides and bottoms are well coated. You can use the back of a spoon for this process but another good option is a decorating brush made for baking.

After all six of the cups in the mold are well coated, place the mold in the fridge and allow for the chocolate to set up.  This will take approximately 30 minutes to an hour depending on the type of chocolate you use.  Then remove the mold from the fridge and carefully pop each chocolate cup out of its mold.

Pour 1 tablespoon of cocoa mix and several mini marshmallows in each of three chocolate shell halves. 

 

 

Heat a plate in the microwave, or a pan on the stove.  Then place one of the empty shells rim side down on the hot surface just long enough to melt the rim of the shell.   And quickly place it on top of one of the filled sides.   Gently press to stick rims together to make a ball and allow to set completely.

 

 

Place the white chocolate chips into a small microwaveable bowl.  Heat your chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments until it is melted and smooth.  Then fill a piping bag or a Ziplock bag with the melted white chocolate.   Drizzle it in slashes back and forth over the top of each cocoa bomb.
