What You'll Need:
- Sphere shape mold
- Melting Chocolate (Find Packaged in our Fruit Nut and Candy Program)
- Hot Chocolate Mix
- Mini Marshmallows
- Chocolate Sprinkles
- Crushed up Candy Canes, optional
Melt your Chocolate. You can do this by simply putting the chocolate in a bowl and microwaving it in 30 second increments. Take it out to stir the chocolate well and be careful not to burn it. You may also use a double broiler. This method gives you a little more control over not burning the chocolate. You can add water halfway in a pot and place a heatproof bowl over the pot while the water is at a simmer and heat is low.
Using a small brush, drop a small spoonful of chocolate into the mold. Paint on the melted chocolate over your sphere. Place the mold in the refrigerator for about 5 to 10 Minutes, until the chocolate is completely dried. Then paint on another thin layer of chocolate. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Remove the chocolate shells from the molds. Fill the bottom shell with a Tablespoon of Cocoa Mix, and 1/4 Cup Mini Marshmallows, and some sprinkles and whatever else you'd like to add to your Cocoa Bomb. Tip: We placed the rim to mason jars on top of the mold, so we could place the chocolate shell on top to hold in place as we filled them.
To "glue" together the Cocoa Bomb, place a small skillet over low heat. Take the top shell and place into the skillet for a second or two, just to slightly melt the chocolate. Immediately place the shell on top of your bottom half, so that the melted chocolate acts as a "glue" to keep them together. You may need to use a little of your melted chocolate to paint in the cracks.
Refrigerate for 5 Minutes. Enjoy your Cocoa Bomb by pouring hot Milk in your mug and watch it explode!
