    • 2 cups powdered sugar

Hot Chocolate:

  1. In a large bowl, sift the confectioner’s sugar, then the unsweetened cocoa, to eliminate any lumps.

Hot Chocolate Bombs:

  3. Invert onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and lightly shake. Discard parchment and place the mold on a baking sheet (chocolate side up).
  4. Freeze for 5 minutes.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 if chocolate appears to be thin and fragile on the first freeze.
  6. Remove mold from the freezer. Chocolate side down, press gently on the top of each sphere to carefully remove onto your baking sheet.
  7. Fill three spheres with 1.5 tablespoons of hot chocolate mix and two tablespoons marshmallow each.
  8. Warm a plate or bowl in the microwave or with boiling water and dry.
  9. Place the bottom of an empty sphere on the plate to lightly melt chocolate. 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 close further.
  10.  Optional: Decorate hot chocolate bombs using melted chocolate in a piping or sealable bag with the tip clipped and add sprinkles, edible stars, luster dust, or whatever your heart desires
  11.  Freeze 5 minutes or refrigerate for 30 minutes and store at room temperature until ready to serve.
