  • 2 cups dark melting chocolate
  • 2 cups hot cocoa mix
  • 6 Corgi marshmallows
  • Chocolate jimmies or sprinkles

Chop the chocolate into chunks and place into a microwave safe bowl.
Heat the chocolate at 50% power in 30-second intervals, stirring after each heating. session and stir. When there are only a few lumps of chocolate that remain unmelted, discontinue further heating and stir the chocolate until it melts fully.
Place 1 Tablespoon of the melted chocolate into one half of a bomb mold. Using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even. Repeat with 12 bomb mold halves.
Place the chocolate filled bomb molds in a muffin tin then put into the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove molds from the freezer and gently tap the sides of the mold, pressing on one side of the chocolate to make the chocolate slide out of the mold.
Remove the Corgi heads from the the base of six of the marshmallows.
Fill 6 of the molds with 2 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix and 1 Corgi marshmallow head.
Heat a plate or a flat-bottom bowl in the microwave until the surface of the plate is warm to the touch.
Press one of the empty chocolate bomb halves open-side-down onto the flat portion of the warm plate for about 10 seconds. This will gently melt the rim of the chocolate cup.
Immediately press this warmed edge chocolate cup to the top of one of the filled cups to join the two halves of the hot chocolate bomb. If needed, add more of the chocolate melts to help shore-up the joint.
Use a piping bag pipe to pipe the remaining melted chocolate over the join line of the assembled hot cocoa bombs as well as a dollop on the top. Then immediately dip the melted chocolate bits into a bowl of chocolate jimmies.
Place the assembled hot chocolate bombs with marshmallows into the freezer for 5 minutes to set. Then remove the hot cocoa bombs and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
  • To use the hot chocolate bombs with marshmallows, place one bomb into a mug. Now pour two cups of hot milk over the top of the hot cocoa bomb. Stir until the bomb has melted completely, then enjoy!
