  8. Create a seal with your finger to secure the hot chocolate bomb.
  9. Top with anything else you would like, like white melted chocolate, sprinkles, nuts, etc.
  10. Place finished hot chocolate bombs in paper cupcake liners.
  11. To serve, heat up 1 cup of milk for each chocolate bomb over a stove or in microwave. Insert bomb and stir after it starts to melt. Enjoy!
