Hot Cocoa Bomb Drink

  • 34 cup hot water

Cocoa Mix
  • 1.

    Combine all the cocoa mix ingredients (nonfat dry milk, dry non-dairy creamer, cocoa powder, salt, Truvia Original Sweetener) mix thoroughly; set aside.

Chocolate Shells

    First, make sure you have a half circle chocolate mold on hand.

  • 7.

    Stir and repeat heating if not melted or pourable.

  • 8.

    Pour the melted chocolate into your half circle chocolate mold.

  • 9.

    Rotate the mold in your hand so the melted chocolate covers all of the half circles. Gently tap the molds to remove air bubbles. Remove the excess on the edges with a knife or spatula.

    Tip over onto a cooling rack and let extra chocolate drip out.

  • 11.

    Right side up, chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  • 14.

    In a new bowl, melt some semisweet chocolate by heating for 30 second intervals, stirring, and then repeating until the chocolate is melted.

  • 15.

    Pour melted chocolate over the top of each half circle mold so that the cocoa mix is sealed inside. Smooth the top of the chocolate on the molds.

  • 16.

    Place the molds back in the fridge to chill for 30 more minutes.

  • 17.

    Carefully remove the chocolates from the mold.

  • 18.

    Using a small amount of melted chocolate, seal two half circles together to make a ball shape.

  • 22.

    Stir and enjoy!
