Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and gather all supplies at your workspace.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt white chocolate on 50% power in 15 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth or milk chocolate on regular power in 15 second increments, stirring in between, until smooth.
Add a heaping spoonful of melted chocolate to each cavity. Using the back of a teaspoon, spread until completely covered.
Invert mold onto a parchment lined baking sheet and lightly shake to remove excess. Discard parchment and place mold on baking sheet (chocolate side up). Scrape edges of each cavity if needed.
Freeze 7 minutes to set.
Meanwhile, warm a plate in the microwave, dishwasher or oven and boil a glass of water to warm a spoon.
Remove mold from freezer. Flip over and press gentlly on the top of each sphere to carefully onto your baking sheet.
Fill half of the spheres with a tablespoon of white hot chocolate mix, 1 tablespoon crushed peppermint, 2 tablespoons marshmallow bits.
Place the open end of an empty sphere on the hot plate to lightly melt chocolate. Place the melted chocolate edge on filled half to seal, handling the chocolate as little as possible to prevent fingerprints. Optional: If needed, dip a spoon in hot water, dry and run the back of it along the edges to seal.
Optional: Decorate using melted chocolate in a piping or sealable bag with the tip clipped and quickly top with crushed peppermint and or marshmallow bits.
To fully set, freeze five minutes or refrigerate 30 minutes and store at room temperature until ready to serve.

Chocolate – Wafers, chocolate chips or baking chocolate. White, milk or dark chocolate.
Marshmallow Bits – Found in packages of marshmallow lovers or in a shaker near the ice cream at your grocer. You can also use mini marshmallows but won't be able to fit as many inside the bomb!
Water instead of milk - Yes, you can use hot water to make your mug of hot cocoa, but it won't be quite as creamy!
Room Temperature – After you make them, hot chocolate bombs can be stored at room temperature for up to two weeks in an airtight container or a food safe cellophane gift bag. Make sure you’re storing them in a pantry or away from heat sources or sun.
