Prep Time 30 mins
Servings 4

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup white morsel chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 box hot chocolate packets
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Instructions
 

  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and melted. Using the back of a spoon, spread chocolate evenly thoughout the mold. I dangle my molds in a muffin tin, so the bottoms do not flatten out. Freeze for 10 minutes, and gently remove, laying out on a cookie sheet.
  • Fill each chocolate cup with a half packet of hot chocolate, mini marshmallows, broken candy cane, and anything else festive that you'd like to burst out of it when it pops.
  • I used an iron skillet over very low heat to warm the edges of one half-cup. When the edges are warm and slightly melted, then quickly stick on top of another half-cup. Run your finger along the edges to smooth everything out. I don't worry about making the edges too smooth, because I'll cover them quite a bit with the white chocolate drizzle. Place in fridge for 10 minutes so that the edges seal well.
  • Melt semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth and melted. I add in a little bit of Crisco, becasue the fat will help the white chocolate melt well without seizing up. Once cooled, I drizzle melted white all over the tops, and add a little extra around the edges to cover them up. Add sprinkles or crushed up candy cane for an extra decorative touch!
