Why won’t my hot cocoa bomb stick together?

Just add more chocolate to the edges and that should do the trick. I like to put chocolate on the edges and really seal them up so that they hold in all the ingredients and I don’t have to worry about them breaking apart. Use your finger to smooth on some extra melted chocolate on the seams.

Step three

Put the molds in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Step four

Take them out of the freezer and put 1 tablespoon of the melted white candy or the green candy into one half of the molds. Spread out using the back of your spoon and get the chocolate up the sides as well. Leave it thick. Do this to all of the mold halves.

Step five

Step six

Take them out of the freezer and tap the sides gently. This will help loosen the chocolate to take out of the molds.

Step nine

Once it melts a bit, press it down on the other half of the matching mold. This will make a complete circle.
