    3. Put the molds into the freezer (or if you live in a cold climate, like Minnesota, put them outside!).

    4. Once nice and hard, paint on a second coat. Make sure to pay attention to the top edge so it's nice and thick or it will collapse when you put the molds together.

    5. Put them back into the freezer and allow them to harden. Have patience, you want them nice and hard!
    6. Pop them out of the molds, careful not to handle too much, and melt the chocolate with your hands.

How to use them: 

  1. Place a hot chocolate bomb into a mug and pour warm hot milk or water over it. Watch it melt and explode the marshmallows out. My kids LOVED this part!
  2. Stir and enjoy! 
  3. I store them in the freezer, they last longer and hold their shape.

Notes

Fun variations: 

  • You can also color the white chocolate with healthy coloring, like beetroot powder or spirulina (to make red and green).
