  4. Using small paint brush, brush chocolate inside the mold half spheres to coat bottom and sides of half. Place in refrigerator to set 5 minutes. Repeat the chocolate coating 2-3 times making sure your half rounds are coated but not filled in. Chill until completely set.  Can wrap mold in foil and chill overnight.

  8. Fill half of the shells with tiny mallow bits.  With remaining halves. place one half in warmed skillet for just a second to melt edges, attach immediately to one side of mallow filled half shell.  Place filled balls on back side of mold to keep from rolling around to set.
  9. Once all shells are filled and now balls, with paint brush apply thin layer of melted chocolate around the seam and dip into Christmas sprinkles.  Set aside to dry.

To serve:  Fill mug or cup with hot chocolate and place three chocolate bombs on top of hot chocolate.  If you pipe with whipped cream, the balls will last a bit longer as it is not touching the warm chocolate.  As the chocolate melts the tiny mallow bits will pop up.

Notes

You can use a larger silicone mold  to make larger balls/bombs… just make sure your bombs will fit inside the mugs.
