As we enter December and the cold weather sets in, what’s a better way to warm yourself up than with a Hot Chocolate Bomb!
Student Manager, Rhea Howell, has been experimenting in the kitchen whilst in lockdown and has come up with a sweet treat she wanted to share with our listeners this festive season. We featured this recipe on our show on Thursday 3rd December at 11.30am.
Here’s Rhea’s step-by-step guide to making these tasty treats!
To get started you’re going to need to get yourself these ingredients :
- Your choice of chocolate
- Any hot chocolate mixture
- A handful of Marshmallows
- Half circle flexible baking moulds
Now here’s how you make them:
- Melt chocolate on heat (on the stove or the microwave) until smooth & pourable. Be sure not to burn it!
- Pour the chocolate thickly into the flexible baking mould – make sure it’s spread evenly!
- Freeze the mould with its chocolate contents for 5-10 mins
- Gently remove your chocolate half spheres from the mould
- Add your hot chocolate mix & marshmallows to 1 half chocolate sphere.
- Gently heat the edges of the other half of chocolate on a microwaveable plate or heated pan. Be careful not to melt it too much, you just want to heat it enough to stick the half spheres together.
- Stick together to half spheres and leave to set in the fridge for 5 minutes.
- Finally decorate with sprinkles or drizzle with extra chocolate & enjoy!
