COLOR YOUR CHOCOLATE & POUR IN THE MOLD
Pour your melted white chocolate (after you color it - see demo below of using Ruby Red Choc Elite) into the mold and then do one of two things: use a a small plastic cake tool or paint brush, to get the chocolate all around the edge of the mold. OR gently move your mold around in small circular motions, until the chocolate covers the entire area.
DEMOLD THE COCOA BOMB
Let the chocolate fully set up before de-molding, it should be dry to the touch in all areas! We recommend waiting at least an hour before attempting to de-mold. Once completely dry, peel back the silicone away from your shell. Go slow, so the chocolate does not crack and don't get discouraged if it does! It takes a couple of tries to get used to it - especially if this is your first time making hot cocoa bombs!
ADD THE GOODIES!
Fill the first hot cocoa bomb shell with all of your goodies! Cocoa powder and mini marshmallows!
PUT THE TWO PIECES TOGETHER
Take your second hot cocoa bomb shell and using a warm skillet or hot plate, quickly place down (edge first) to warm the edge of your cocoa bomb and then gently align / attach to the first shell! You need one shell to have warm edges, so you can put together the two sides and make your cocoa bomb!
DUST THE GOLD BUCKLE
Dust the gold buckle of Santa's Belt with Wedding Gold Luster Dust! To do this, you will want to FIRST paint the Color Solution straight on the buckle, let it dry for 2 mins. Then go back and gently dry dust small amounts of Wedding Gold! The Color Solution will help this to adhere incredibly well and it is the BEST way to apply luster dust to chocolate - see additional Tutorial Here (click here).
Then create your edible paint with Turkish Black Painting Powder and, The Color Solution. You will want an acrylic like consistency in the paint palette and you will be amazed to see just how much coverage you get with one layer! We always apply 2 layers, just to ensure it is all covered up.
