Preparation Time30 min
- ⅔ cup red candy melts
- 3.5 oz dark chocolate, 72% cocoa
- ¼ cup bright pink candy melts
- 3 heaping tbsp hot chocolate mix
- 3 oz valentine’s M&M’s Milk Chocolate Candies
The first step in making these hot chocolate bombs is tempering your dark chocolate! Give the chocolate a rough chop and microwave it in a heat-safe bowl for 30 seconds at 50% power.
Stir the chocolate and start microwaving it 15-seconds at a time, being sure to stir after each microwaving.
When it starts to melt, begin checking the temperature with your candy thermometer. You want your chocolate melted, but you don’t want the temperature above 90 degrees. If it comes close but your chocolate still has chunks, give it a quick stir and it should all melt and become creamy.
Grab a baking sheet or other flat surface and place your silicone mold on it. Add about a tablespoon of the melted dark chocolate to 3 of the molds. Coat them completely, leaving the edges a little thicker than the bottom.
Move the molds to the fridge for 1-2 minutes to set, then remove and repeat the coating process a second time to make sure your sphere is thick enough to prevent breaking.
Move the molds to the fridge again to set.
