1. Melt the Ghirardelli chocolate in the microwave. Use a spoon to spread a thin layer around the inside of the molds.

2. Refrigerate the mold for 20 minutes, then repeat steps 1 and 2 one more time and refrigerate.

3. Remove the chocolates from the molds and add some hot cocoa mix and marshmallows into one half of the cocoa bomb.

4. Warm a plate in the microwave, then slightly melt the rim of an empty half of the cocoa bomb by rubbing it inside the warm plate, then place it over the filled side.

5. Hold for a few seconds together to secure in place. 

6. Decorate with melted chocolate (color of your choice). Add holiday sprinkles to finish it off. NOTE: If you would like to use royal icing instead of melted chocolate to decorate your cocoa bombs, we have a recipe here for you to download.
