Ingredients

For 3 Heart Shaped Hot Chocolate Bombs (for more, scale accordingly)

Instructions

  1. Melt the white chocolate over a double boiler.
  2. To color the chocolate, you can do the following:
    1. Use powdered food dye
    2. Use an oil based food dye
    3. Mix a dab of coconut oil (less than 1/4 tsp) with gel food coloring separately, then add it to the melted chocolate (this is the method I used and it worked just fine!) DO NOT add liquid or gel food coloring directly into melted white chocolate. 
  3. Mix the chocolate and food coloring well until fully incorporated.
  4. Spoon a generous 2 teaspoons of chocolate into each cavity of the mold.
  5. Using a small offset spatula, spoon or butter knife, spread the chocolate up the sides of the mold ensuring every bit is completely covered.
  6. Give the mold a couple of taps on the surface to settle the chocolate, and set aside for about 5 minutes.
  7. After that time, spread the chocolate up the sides again to thicken the sides of the shell.
  8. Tap the mold against the surface another time.
  9. Place the mold into the refrigerator for 30-45 minutes until fully set.
  10. To remove the shells, tug the corners of the molds until the sides loosen. Use your fingers to push under the mold to pop the chocolate shell out.
  11. Grab a small plate and add water to cover the surface. Microwave for 30 seconds or until very hot. You can also run the plate under hot water for a minute. Wipe the plate down and dry it off.
  12. Place one of the halves, edge side down on the plate, and move it around to soften and melt the rim.
  13. Fill with 2 teaspoons of strawberry milk powder and some marshmallows.
  14. Repeat step 12 with the other half of the bomb and seal the two halves together.
  15. To decorate, drizzle one side with melted white chocolate and sprinkles.
  16. Allow chocolate to set, then package if desired.
  17. When ready to drink, place the bomb in the bottom of a mug and pour over 6oz of hot milk. Stir, enjoy!
