Introduction: Beverage Bomb

About: I enjoy tinkering in my barn with leather work, jewelry, wood, and metal.

With the onset of cold weather comes the desire for warm beverages to warm the soul. Whether that be Hot chocolate, Chai Latte, or even a White Mocha these bombs can be filled with your favorite treats.

Supplies

White Chocolate melting wafers

Marshmallows

Hot Chocolate mix

Sprinkles

Candy Molds

Candy Brushes

Step 1: Making the Shell

To make the shell you need to melt the chocolate wafers in a microwave safe bowl. Heat at 50% power for 30 seconds and stir. Continue to heat until the chocolate is melted. Once melted you need to move quickly before the chocolate stiffens. Using a small spoon put a small amount of chocolate into the mold. Use the candy brush to coat the walls. Put the mold into the freezer for a few minutes to harden the chocolate. Remove the mold and repeat the process to thicken the walls. Return the mold to the freezer and let sit before proceeding.

Step 2: Removing From the Mold

Once the chocolate is thoroughly set you will need to remove it form the mold. Carefully stretch the mold to release the seal, and push gently from behind to release the chocolate.

Step 3: Even the Mold Edges

To even the edges use a non-stick skillet on low heat to melt a solid edge. This is also how you close the mold halves together.

Step 4: Fill the Molds With Your Favorite Beverage Additions.

Fill one of the mold halves with you favorite beverage additions weather that's sprinkles, marshmallows, or something more to your liking. I made 2 different examples. One filled with hot chocolate mix, sprinkles , and mini marshmallows. The second with just marshmallows and sprinkles.

Step 5: Seal the Mold and Decorate

Using the skillet on low, heat the edge of a shell and stick the halves together. You can melt some additional chocolate to adhere any decorations.

Step 6: Variations

I experimented with three different molds to see what worked. The large spherical mold worked with hot chocolate mix. Use less of the mixed than listed as the chocolate shell will add to the flavor. I tried to use an ice mold for a mid size sphere. The chocolate didn't come out very well, I think it was the stiffness of the mold. The third was a candy mold that provided some excellent detail on the exterior. This mold provided at square and sphere shape.

Step 7: Heat Your Favorite Beverage and Enjoy

    Thank you! if you add a second coat of chocolate when the first one is dry, it makes it less delicate when it is out of water or milk, but the shell cracks the same when it is put in a beverage.

    Nice job! These seem like so much fun :)

    If you get a chance, you should embed the Vimeo links as they don't appear to be working as is.

    I have redone the links. I couldn't get the video to embed properly. Is there anything you can see on your end?
