The latest trend in hot cocoa preparation, hot chocolate bombs are an indulgent treat that will wow your family and friends. In essence, they're a hollow sphere of chocolate filled with cocoa mix and marshmallows. When placed in a mug and covered with hot milk, the bomb "explodes," releasing the cocoa mix and marshmallows to create an instant mug of hot chocolate. Here's how you can create this delightful and interactive experience using Macalat Organic Sweet Dark Chocolate.
1 1/2 cups Macalat Organic Sweet Dark Chocolate, chopped
1 cup hot cocoa mix
1 cup mini marshmallows
Silicone mold for hot chocolate bombs (sphere shape)
Start by melting your Macalat Organic Sweet Dark Chocolate. You can do this in a microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring after each until completely melted. Alternatively, use a double boiler on the stovetop.
Using a pastry brush or the back of a spoon, paint the melted chocolate into each cavity of your silicone mold. Make sure to cover the entire cavity evenly. This is the shell of your hot chocolate bomb.
Chill the chocolate in the molds in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate is set.
Once set, carefully remove the chocolate half-spheres from the mold.
Fill half of the chocolate shells with a spoonful of hot cocoa mix and a few mini marshmallows.
Heat a plate for a few seconds in the microwave, then take one of the empty chocolate half-spheres and gently press it onto the warm plate to slightly melt the edges.
Quickly place the melted edge onto one of the filled halves. The melted chocolate will act as a glue, sealing the two halves together. Repeat with the remaining halves.
After all the bombs are sealed, you may drizzle some additional melted chocolate on top for decoration or sprinkle with a dusting of cocoa powder
Time to Enjoy Your Hot Chocolate Bombs
To enjoy, simply place one of your hot chocolate bombs into a mug, pour hot milk over it, and watch the magic happen! Stir well to fully dissolve the cocoa mix.
