How to make hot chocolate bombs 

Follow our simple steps to discover how to make hot chocolate bombs at home: 

  1. 1. Melt your chocolate in a microwavable dish in 30-second intervals. Stop once it becomes a runny liquid. You can also melt it in a metal bowl over a pan of boiling water on the hob if you prefer. 
  1. 2. Pour the melted chocolate into 12 slots on a spherical silicone baking tray and leave to set. This should take between 10-60 minutes. 
  1. 3. Once your half-spheres are set, pop them out of the silicone baking tray. 
  1. 4. Fill half of them with a teaspoon of hot chocolate powder and mini marshmallows.  
  1. 5. Dip the other half of your choco hemispheres in the remaining melted chocolate, before carefully placing them on top of the filled hemispheres. 
  1. 6. Drizzle any remaining melted chocolate over the top of your new choco balls. 
  1. 7. Make your hot chocolate. 
  1. 8. Once your hot chocolate is ready and in your fave mug, carefully place a chocolate bomb in it and watch it melt!
