As a newly-converted hot cocoa bomb addict, as soon as we make a few rounds of the classic chocolate flavor, of *course* we start branching out into different flavor additions! Right after peppermint bark… I opted to use mini Reese’s cups to make bombs that looked like ornaments, and add some peanut butter to the inside of the bomb! OH my gosh; so cute, so fun and SO good!
You only need a few supplies – a half-dome silicone mold, semisweet chocolate, hot cocoa mix, peanut butter, and mini marshmallows! Green candy melt drizzle + sprinkles are optional but recommended. ;) As much fun as these are just to make, I think filming pouring milk over the bomb miiiiight have been my favorite part! I recommend aiming your pour at the seam to make the bomb come apart and melt more quickly.
These are SUPER easy to make – and they make great Christmas gifts! Recipe below!
Of note, tempering your chocolate is optional but recommended – do not panic; you can do this in the microwave! I had some trouble tempering my semisweet chocolate – until I used SugarGeekShow’s microwave tempering method! (I also found this spatula with a candy thermometer in the center super helpful for tempering!)
