1½Cupspink candy melts
½Cupwhite candy meltsor white chocolate chips for the drizzle
3TBSPHot Chocolate Mix
Dehydrated Marshmallowsor regular mini marshmallows
Using a Wilton melting pot, or bowl and the microwave, heat your pink melting candy until smooth. NOTE: If you are using the microwave you will want to do this in 30 second increments and stir in between. Be careful not to overheat and add a little bit of Crisco to keep candy from binding.
Once your candies are melted, coat your silicone molds, making sure that all of the sides and bottom are well coated. You can use a spoon for this process but another good option is baking brush.
Candy melts will harden as they cool. Place the mold in the fridge to speed up the process. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
Once your bomb halves are set, gently pop them out of the molds and fill one side with 1 tablespoon hot chocolate mix and mini dehydrated marshmallows.
To join halves, use a plate heated by the microwave, or a pan on the stove, melt the rim of an empty pink wafer side and place it on top of one of the filled sides. Allow it to set again.
Melt chocolate chips and add to a Ziploc bag and cut one corner. Then drizzle over the hot cocoa bombs. Allow each drizzle to set before doing the additional one.
Before the final drizzle sets apply your sprinkles and let cool.
To enjoy your drink, add 1 hot chocolate bomb to a mug and pour 8-10 ounces of warm milk over the top and stir until melted.
