- microwave safe bowl
- heart shaped silicone mold
- small piping bags or sandwich bags
- a plate
- a hot plate (or a frying pan
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- hot chocolate mix
- mini marshmallows
- sprinkles or crushed candies (optional)
- Candy melts in the color of your choice (optional)
Place a plate in the freezer.
Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, 30 seconds at a time (stirring in intervals to make sure it doesn’t burn) until the chocolate is melted and smooth.
Use a spoon to drop a spoonful of chocolate into the first cavity of the heart mold. Use the back of the spoon to coat the mold completely. *Be sure to wipe away any excess chocolate. Fill the other molds in the same way, then freeze the mold for 10 to 15 minutes.
*tip- The heart halves can be difficult to remove from the silicone mold. They will be easier to remove if you cut the mold apart into 6 separate heart molds.
Remove the plate and mold from the freezer.
Carefully remove each half of the heart from the mold and set them on the now frozen plate.
Spoon 2 spoonfuls of hot chocolate mix into one side of each heart mold.
Add a small handful of mini marshmallows and any candies or sprinkles you choose.
Connect the two sides of the heart together by melting more chocolate, placing it in a piping bag and using it to ‘glue’ the two sides of the heart together. Or, you can place the edges of the empty half of the heart to a hot plate (or heated frying pan) to barely melt the edge- then stick it to the other half of the heart.
Now you can choose to decorate the outside of the Heart Hot Cocoa Bomb with melted white chocolate, a colored candy melt of your choice, and sprinkles.
To enjoy the hot cocoa bomb place it in a mug of almost boiling water or milk.
What a lovely Valentine’s Day treat!
