Notes

Exact amounts of ingredients needed or yield may vary depending on the actual silicone mold you use. Silicone molds come in all sizes - with the one's I purchased, I used the large ones, so if you don't use the exact same one we did, you may end up needing more or less of each ingredient. I used a full tablespoon of Cocoa in each mold.

If you are drizzling the white chocolate on top of bomb, make sure it cools a little otherwise it will put a hole in the bomb
