Introduction: Homemade Hot Chocolate Bombs
In this Instructable, I will show you how to make hot chocolate bombs. This homemade cocoa bombs recipe is so fun to make and pretty easy as well. All you need are just 3 or 4 ingredients. If you love drinking hot chocolate or know someone that does, this a perfect treat to make. It would also be a fun activity to do with the family, especially if it is cold outside and you are stuck inside. Time to make hot chocolate bombs from scratch, let's get started!
- Crushed peppermint candy to go inside (optional)
Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and use bursts of 30 seconds on the microwave and stir in between until completely melted. Or use the double boiler method on the stovetop burner. Place the metal or pyrex bowl on top of a small pot with about an inch of water in it. Turn the heat to medium, and the steam will hit the bottom of the bowl and gently melted the chocolate.
Note: If you use normal chocolate you will need to temper it, otherwise, you can just store them in the fridge. Candy melts do not need to be tempered and work great if these will be left out at room temp for a long time.
Step 3: Paint and Chill
Now scoop in a teaspoon or two of chocolate, it doesn't have to be exact into eachmold腔。你可以倾斜和转动模具，使巧克力进入侧面或使用勺子的背部“绘制”它。如果您喜欢或新的画笔，您也可以使用硅胶制作刷子。
Once the chocolate has set, come back and paint up the sides with a second coat of chocolate. This will make sure the walls are thick enough and don't break on you when assembling the chocolate bombs.
Chill again in the fridge for 10 minutes.
Step 4: Remove and Fill
Fill half of them up with about 1 tablespoon of instant hot cocoa mix. This doesn't have to be exact. You can also add crushed-up peppermint candies or other favorite hot chocolate additions.
Place the other half-ball of chocolate rim side down onto the pan. The heat will melt the rim evenly and create "glue". Pick it up and place it on the other half that is filled.
And there you go, that is pretty much it.
Next, if desired, melt and drizzle some white chocolate/candy melts over the top. You can top with sprinkles too if you like. Or like crushed up peppermint candies/candy canes.
Once done, place them in mini muffin paper cups for presenting. This is totally optional.
Step 7: Moment of Truth
Now to serve, heat up some milk until it is really hot, and then place a hot chocolate bomb in a mug. Pour the hot milk over it and watch as it melts and breaks apart allowing the marshmallows to come to the top.
