Tools Needed For Making Hot Chocolate Bombs
Silicone Mold – You will use these silicone sphere that is flexible and allows you to easily remove the chocolate shell without breaking.
Brush – You can use a paint brush or a pastry brush for making your chocolate cocoa bombs. Use the brush to pull the chocolate up on the edges instead of pooling to the bottom of the mold.
Bag For Piping – You will use a piping bag or Ziploc bag to pipe on the drizzled chocolate on top of the hot chocolate bomb.
One other thing you can use is gloves. You will find that gloves can help you to prevent getting fingerprints on the chocolate.
What Is The Best Chocolate To Use
I used candy melts, it is a great way to quickly and easily melt and coat your bombs. If you want to use regular chocolate like chocolate chips, melt making sure to not go over 90F. If you go over it will cause your temper of chocolate to provide a whitish film on the outside. Keeping the chocolate under 90 degrees tempers the chocolate allowing it to harden up like candy melts.
For the base chocolate I used plain chocolate then we used yellow candy melts to drizzle on the top. If you want feel free to swap out the colors to fit whatever you prefer.
Helpful Tips For Making Hot Chocolate Bombs
Make sure to create even thin layers of chocolate in your silicone mold. The reason being is if the chocolate becomes too thick it will not melt properly when you pour the milk over the top.
Feel free to use a lint free paper towel to wipe away the excess chocolate once you seal the two sphere halves together.
Drizzling the chocolate on top adds a nice pop of color but also can hide imperfections. You can even add on sprinkles, crumbled candies, etc.
