Hot Cocoa Bombs Recipe

1.) First, melt chocolate and pour it into the mold. Scoop the melted chocolate up the sides to make an even coating around the edges. Take extra care to thoroughly coat the arms and legs with the chocolate too.

2.) Next, place the chocolate-coated mold into the refrigerator to set for 10 minutes. Then carefully remove each chocolate gingerbread section.

3.) Then, heat an empty plate in the microwave. Place the open side of a chocolate gingerbread onto the warm plate for a few seconds to melt down the rough edges.

4.) Now it’s time to add hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows into one half. Melt the second chocolate gingerbread half and place it on top to create a seal with the melted chocolate. Hold it gently for a minute until the chocolate sets.
