The key to keeping them fresh is to store them in an airtight container until they’re ready to be used. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy at all – just something that has a sealable lid.

How to Make Chocolate Orange Hot Cocoa Bombs

Once you have everything listed above, you’re ready to get started! Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Step One

Put the orange candy melts in a bowl and melt in the microwave per the package directions.

Step Two

Put 1 tablespoon of the chocolate into the molds and make certain to get it all the way up the sides. Leave it a bit thick so that it won’t break easily as well.

Step three

Put them in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Step four

After the time has passed, take them out of the freezer and give the sides a gentle tap. This will loosen the chocolate and help it to slide out easier.

Step five

Fill half the molds with 1 tablespoon hot chocolate mix, 1 orange candy slice, and 8 mini marshmallows.

Step six

Put a microwave-safe plate in the microwave and heat the plate until it’s warm to the touch. Then put the empty half of the mold face down to melt the edge. Once melted, stick on the other filled half of the mold to secure them together.

You can also pipe melted chocolate on the edges and secure them together that way as well.
