Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipe
Step 1: Chop up your chocolate as finely as you can. Place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30 seconds.
Step 2: Take the chocolate out, stir it, and put it back in for 15-second increments until completely melted.
Step 3: Line each silicone mold with chocolate using a spoon or paintbrush. Coat the inside of each cup as evenly as possible. Make sure it’s thick enough around the edges so that they won’t break.
Step 4: Put in freezer and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
Step 5: Remove from freezer, gently pull back the silicone and pop the half spheres out.
Step 6: Fill one half sphere three-quarters of the way with hot cocoa and your favorite toppings
Step 7: Place microwave-safe plate in the microwave for 1 minute on high. Remove plate and place empty halves edges-down and place until they start to melt.
Step 8: Combine with other half. Let cool for a few seconds.
Step 9: Decorate the outside with sprinkles or melted chocolate.
Step 10: Warm up some milk or water and pour into a mug. Add hot chocolate bomb and enjoy!
