Chocolate Bombe for hot chocolate

    Has anyone made chocolate bombe's please for hot chocolate and could give me some advice?

    I bought the silicon mould and did a test run with a mixture of melted Bourneville and Dairymilk.

    I found it hard enough to coat the moulds and they needed three coats, so the shell was quite thick/dense.

    Also, I'm not a fan of hot chocolate, so I don't really know what it should taste like.

    I bought a tub of Dairymilk hot chocolate powder and mini marshmallows for the filling, does that sound right?

    How far in advance could I make them and how should I store them.

    Use a better chocolate for starters, use a higher cocoa solids content and it will melt thinner and be easier spread, I'd suggest something around 50% cocoa solids in the Moser Rother from Aldi or the Lidl ones, can't remember their brand. You don't want a really sweet chocolate as the powder is already sweetened.

    I would just store at room temp when made in something airtight, should last a couple of weeks anyway.
