Hot Chocolate Bombs

IMG_9301-2

These treats have been all over the internet for a while now, and I knew I wanted to make a “how to” video with my son David.  We have made a few videos in the past, and we always have so much fun being together in the kitchen.

My kids always tease me because when they were little and would come into the kitchen and ask to help, I would tell them they could help me by staying out of the kitchen…ouch!!  Wow!! This actually makes me pretty sad.  Don’t get me wrong, we used bake and decorate cookies (Christmas, Easter, Halloween).  I used to make cakes as a side business, and I feel like I was always in the kitchen baking and decorating cakes all hours of the night.

Being a grandmother (Mimi, as I’m known by my precious grandchildren) is truly a wonderful chapter in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I have always loved being a Mom to my amazing children.  I always loved playing with them, riding bikes, small day or weekend trips to Lancaster, Pa., attending after school activities and plays and activities in school.  But, it’s definitely different being a Mimi.  All my grandchildren loved being in the kitchen with me when they were little, but as they get bigger, they have other interests when they come over.  My granddaughter Evangeline (she is also my youngest) loves to be in the kitchen with me ALL the time, and I couldn’t be happier.  She loves to bake and cook everything from cookies to making homemade guacamole.  We are trying to perfect Auntie Missy’s recipe (or Missy Missy, as Evie Calls her).  So, long story short, I love having my adult children in the kitchen with me too, and when my son and I hang out in the kitchen making these fun “how to” videos, I enjoy every single second:)!!

This is all you need to make these scrumptious treats:

Silicone mold

Chocolate melts

Hot Chocolate Mix

Marshmallows

Sprinkles

I used my kitchen torch to heat the back of a small baking sheet to smoothe the half sphere.  If you don’t have a torch, you should totally get one because they are super cool and fun to use:) hahaha!!  But seriously, you can still do this by warming a small plate in the microwave.  It’s not as much fun, but it gets the job done (wink, wink!!).

You can fill your chocolate bomb with whatever you like (David shows us how we can add candy too….yum!!).  Get creative!!

Now, go check out our amusing (and informative)you tube video!

I hope you make these enjoyable treats, and if you do, please tag me on Instagram @goodeatsbymimi.  I would love to hear from you and see your photos!
