Hot chocolate bombs are the newest trend for the holiday season. They are pretty expensive, and sold out everywhere you go. But don’t fret, you can create hot chocolate bombs with these simple steps.
Having the right tools makes any job easier. Same goes for the hot chocolate bomb. The silicon mold to create hot chocolate bomb can be found at most craft stores. Though it is getting harder to find them, I suggest to use what you can find. If you can’t find the sought after round mold, I have seen them being made with flat round molds and even square silicon molds.
When you melt the chocolate, be sure to use either a melting pot, or a double boiler. You will also need a cookie sheet, parchment paper, bakers rack, cake pan or metal plate, milk, good hot chocolate (made to go with milk), and marshmallows. You can also have sprinkles and crushed peppermint to add into the ball. A lot of people will tell you to temper the chocolate, but as long as you use the good chocolate, you will be ok not worrying about this step.
Don’t go cheap with the chocolate, it really makes a difference. I usually use candy melts for my chocolate covered needs, but don’t use them to create your own hot chocolate bombs. Splurge on the good stuff, either get the Ghirardelli chocolates chips or the Bakers chocolate bars. They both melt great and harden to perfection to create your hot chocolate bombs.
It’s time to melt the chocolate. This is the fun part for me, well one of the fun parts of this craft. Follow these steps for melting your chocolate and creating the first part of the hot chocolate bomb.
