Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Bombs

by | Jan 28, 2022 | Desserts, Food | 0 comments

Ah, chocolate and Valentine’s Day, a classic pairing if there ever was one! I have saved probably hundreds of these recipes on my Pinterest, but with Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I thought I’d share a few different decorating options for you!

For the silicone mold, I bought this one from Amazon.

Hot Chocolate Bombs

Course Dessert
Servings 6 bombs

Equipment

  • 1 Silicone mold
  • 1 Plastic baggie or squeeze bottle For drizzling chocolate over the top to decorate

Ingredients
  

  • Melting wafers Dark, milk or white chocolate wafers

Instructions
 

  • Make sure you do not get your wafers wet or they will "seize" and won't work. Using chocolate wafers also eliminates the need to temper the chocolate, which to a beginner like me, helps a lot!
  • To begin, place your melting wafers in a microwave safe bowl and melt in 15 second intervals until thoroughly melted, stirring frequently.
  • Once fully melted, pour a small amount (1-2 teaspoons) of the melted wafers into each mold.
  • Using a silicon brush, evenly distribute the chocolate around the half-sphere shape.
  • Let the shells cool slightly, and then turn the mold over to cool completely. This eliminates the possibility of having a flat bottom!
  • Carefully remove the shells from the mold by peeling the silicon mold gently away from the shell.
  • Add 2 teaspoons of hot chocolate mix into the sphere, along with a few mini marshmallows.
  • Heat a frying pan on low and carefully rub an unfilled sphere to gently warm the edges. When melted, add it to the top of a filled sphere and gently press together to seal.
  • You can drizzle chocolate across the top, add sprinkles or decorate any way you choose!
