Place the mold(s) into the freezer while you are melting the chocolate.
Melt the chocolate – you can either use a double boiler or you can use the microwave.
Once the chocolate is melted, remove the candy molds from the freezer and place on a small baking sheet. Next, add 1 tbsp of the chocolate into the mold. Use your spoon to move the chocolate around the inside of the mold. Make sure that you apply the chocolate evenly.
Repeat the process for the remainder of the molds. When you are done, lightly tap the mold(s) to get any air bubbles out.
Place the mold on the baking sheet back into the freezer and let the chocolate spheres set up for 10 – 15 minutes.
Remove the chocolate bomb molds from the freezer.
Heat a plate in the microwave for approximately 60 seconds. Remove from the microwave then as you work on each mold, turn one of the bomb halves upside down and place it directly onto the hot plate for 5 to 10 seconds. You just want the rim to gently melt.
Fill the molds with 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix and top with mini marshmallows.
Then repeat the step to melt the rim of the bomb you are using to top your hot chocolate bomb.
CAREFULLY press the two halves together.
Repeat the process until all of the chocolate bombs are done.
Use the pink cookie icing and drizzle that over the top of your hot chocolate bombs.
Top with the sprinkles.
To use the bomb, place it in a large mug, pour warm milk over it and stir until everything is mixed together and enjoy!
