@10sluvr  Easy Cocoa Bombs

 

 

Ingredients
  • 24 ounces (680 g) semi-sweet couverture chocolate I prefer Callebaut, you can also use any high quality bar chocolate. You can use candy melts, if you're using a silicone mold but they don't taste as good.
  • 1 cup (50 g) mini marshmallows
  • 6 Tablespoons (88 g) hot chocolate mix
Equipment
  • Thermometer
  • 2 1/2" Sphere Mold (silicone or acrylic)
 

Instructions

For Silicone Molds
  • Finely chop your chocolate using a sharp chefs knife
  • Place the chocolate into a bowl and heat for 30 seconds (my microwave is 1000 watts)
  • Stir the chocolate, moving the chocolate that is on the outside, towards the center.
  • Heat again for 15 seconds and stir again.
  • Repeat this process until the chocolate is ALMOST melted but not fully melted. Never heating for longer than 15 seconds and never going above 90F. If you go above 90º you will have to temper your chocolate by seeding (see my blog post for more info)
  • Make sure your molds are clean by polishing them with a paper towel
  • Paint a thin layer of chocolate into the molds and refrigerate for 5 minutes
  • Paint a second coat of chocolate over the first, paying special attention to building up the rim of the sphere. Refrigerate for 5 minutes.
  • Take your chocolate out of the molds and fill with 1 tablespoon of hot cocoa mix and marshmallows
  • Pipe some melted chocolate around the rim and attach the second sphere on top. Pressing gently to seal.
  • Use a gloved hand to wipe away the excess chocolate or simply roll the chocolate sphere in some sprinkles to finish the look.
 
For Acrylic Molds
  • Chop your chocolate finely with a sharp chefs knife
  • Add your chocolate to a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds (my microwave is 1000 watts)
  • Stir the chocolate, moving the chocolate that is on the outside, towards the center.
  • Heat again for 15 seconds and stir again.
  • Repeat this process until the chocolate is ALMOST melted but not fully melted. Never heating for longer than 15 seconds and never going above 90F.

I know you said you wanted to make them but I just got some at Target.  They were $1 each.  They also have hot chocolate bombs available on line. Hot chocolate bombs have been hard for me to find.  I did hear Costco is selling them.

I think I'm going to try my hand a keto hot chocolate bombs for DH and I.  I have the molds ordered and have the supplies on hand.  Our family Christmas get together is in limbo.  We already postponed it to the weekend after New Year's, but now that's up in the air.
