Ingredients
  

  • 2 Silicone Sphere Molds - found on amazon
  • 1 - 30 oz of Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate melting wafers
  • 2 C of hot cocoa mix
  • 1 disposable piping bag
  • 1 cookie sheet fitted with wax paper
  • 2 C Mini Marshmallows
  • Valentine's Day Sprinkles
  • 4-8 Valentine’s Day Chocolate Bows Local bakery can provide some

Instructions
 

  • Remove about 16-20 pieces of the melting wafers and using a heat-safe bowl, microwave Ghirardelli melting wafers for 45 second intervals. Make sure to stir the chocolate after every 45 seconds until they are completely melted and smooth.
  • Using a spoon, spoon about 1-2 tbsp of the chocolate into the mold
  • Carefully swirl the chocolate to completely coat the inside of the mold
  • Lightly shake the extra chocolate back into the bowl
  • Place the coated molds into the fridge for 5-10 minutes
  • Remove from the fridge and gently peel the silicone mold back away from the hardened chocolate shell
  • Carefully place the mold onto the cookie sheet
  • Repeat steps with remaining molds
  • You should now have 8 half sphere molds
  • Scoop some of the melted chocolate into the piping bag and cut the tip

Building the cocoa bomb :

  • Scoop about 1 tbsp of the hot cocoa mix into the bottom of the sphere mold
  • Sprinkle in a few of the mini marshmallows
  • Pipe a line of the melted chocolate around the edge of the bottom shell
  • Carefully place the top shell onto the bottom and gently hold the top to the bottom for about 30 seconds to a minute to allow the piped chocolate to harden to the top shell
  • Carefully pick up the bomb and make sure that there is no opening around the center of the shells and Place the mold back onto the cookie sheet
  • Drizzle chocolate over the mold and sprinkle some Valentine’s Day Sprinkles
  • Place some bows onto the middle of some of the bombs for Minnie mouse
  • Using a small skillet, place over low heat, Once the pan feels warm, place the bottom of the candy melts that you set aside
  • Melt the bottom of the chocolate wafer so that it becomes a flat edge instead of a round edge
  • Quickly place the freshly melted edge onto the side of the cocoa bomb to create an “Ear”
  • Repeat the same step with the second ear
  • Allow hardening before enjoying!
