Best Sprinkles for Hot Chocolate Bombs

Hot Cocoa Bomb Instructions
Start by chopping up the almond bark.
Using a microwave safe glass bowl, such as a pyrex bowl, melt the almond bark in 30 second intervals for 1.5 to 2 minutes. Stir after a minute and finish melting.
Melt until smooth.
Use a spoon to coat silicone mold with chocolate. Push it up against the sides.
Refrigerate for about 5 minutes until the almond bark is set.
Peel the mold off the half dome shape and set aside.
Heat another pyrex with water for 2 minutes. Place a plate on top to create a hot plate for melting the chocolate edges.
Use the plate to heat the edges of the ball.
Fill with 2 T hot chocolate mix and as many marshmallows as you want.
Heat the other side of the bomb and place on top. The melted edges will stick together.
Ta da! The silicone molds make these so shiny!
Fill a piping bag with leftover bark or candy melts. LET COOL a bit before using. If you pipe it onto the ball too hot, it will melt through.
Use the piping bag as glue. Glue the horn and ears on top.
Hold until they set.
Pipe more chocolate on the front to create a mane.
Spoon on sprinkles.
Repeat on the back for more mane.
And you’re done! See the video in this post to see how it melts!
