Now, I don't know about you, but for me, the holiday season is a state of mind.
I love hot chocolate. However, I don't have a Costco card, and anything from Etsy would melt by the time it got to sunny Southern California. So after watching a bunch of tutorials, I decided to create my own hot cocoa bombs.
First, I gathered all of my supplies.
I melted the dark chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals. Then, I brushed the melted chocolate onto the molds.
This brush method was a mistake. The sphere shells shattered when I tried to take them out of the molds. Instead, you should use my not-yet-patented "pour, finesse, and hope for the best" strategy.
Then, I melted white chocolate and used it, along with the leftover dark chocolate, to make little embeds to decorate with.
Then, while everything was in the freezer, I made the hot chocolate mix, which I then dubbed my "Bitter It's Cold Outside" hot cocoa recipe.
After about an hour, all the chocolate pieces had frozen solid, and assembly began.
Finally came my favorite part — the decorations!
