Halloween Hot Chocolate Bomb Ingredients

  • White Chocolate – White melting wafers, white chocolate chips or white baking chocolate, your preference. I like to use melting wafers because they’re easy to melt, smooth, and make the creamiest hot chocolate.

  2. Fill Cavities – Next, add a heaping teaspoon of melted white chocolate into molds. Spread using the back of a teaspoon until each cavity is completely covered adding more white chocolate as needed. A red silicone sphere mold filled with white chocolate to make peppermint hot chocolate bombs.

  7. Seal – Warm a plate or bowl in the microwave or with boiling water and dry. Place the bottom of an empty sphere on the plate to lightly melt chocolate. Finally, place melted chocolate edge on filled half to seal. Try to handle chocolate as little as possible. Optional: If needed, use a hot spoon, dipped in boiling water and dried to further seal.
