2. Add a large spoonful of the melted chocolate into each of the 6 cavities in your silicone chocolate bomb mold. Smooth the chocolate up the sides of the mold with the back of a spoon making sure to completely coat the sides of each cavity.

5. Remove the half rounds of set chocolate from the molds. Don't force them! They should come out pretty easily.

6. Fill each of the three bottom half rounds with 2 tablespoons of hot cocoa mix, 12 mini marshmallows, and a teaspoon of instant coffee.

8. Working with one bomb at a time, press one of the top half rounds against the heated plate to slightly melt the rim and smooth out the edge. Place the empty half round over the filled bottom half round to seal. Repeat with the remaining two chocolate bombs.

9. If your seams are not tight enough or if they look messy, warm a spoon (dipping it in the hot water or run it under a hot faucet) then run back of the spoon along the seam to melt the chocolate and seal the edge.
