- Unmold your chocolate half-spheres and place in half of your chocolate half-spheres: cocoa powder and powdered sugar but you can also add some decoration to make the experience even more magical ( mini marshmallows, colored sprinkles, edible glitter, etc.).
- Close your chocolate spheres by sliding a hot spatula around the edges of your half-spheres to melt them slightly and place the other half of the sphere on top.
- Decorate your hot chocolate bombs with edible paint, sprinkles or Candy Melts.
There you go! You'll have beautiful hot chocolate bombs ready to melt away to make you melt with happiness!
