Make the spheres: Add the white chocolate into the mold using a spoon and gently swirling the chocolate to fully coat the inside. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes and once firm, remove from the molds.
Build the chocolate bombs: Melt the open side of the molds on a pan to create a smooth edge. Then add cocoa mix and a few mini marshmallows into the half bottom mold. Pipe some chocolate around the edge and place the top on.
Decorate: Add chocolate eyes, a nose, ear muffs however you want! Have fun with it.
