Microwave one color candy melts at a time. Place into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 60 seconds on 50% powder. Stir and return to the microwave, repeating the process, stirring until chocolate is melted.
Divide chocolate into molds and spread evenly along the sides. Use about half of the chocolate. Remove the spoon from the bowl and set aside.
Repeat with the same color, adding a second layer of candy melts to the mold. Pop the mold in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Repeat process with second set of molds with the other color. Pop the mold in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Once chocolate semi-circles are fully hardened, carefully remove spheres from mold and set aside.
Heat a small pan over low heat.
Place mini colored marshmallows into one sphere and set aside.
Place the other color sphere onto the low heated pan to gently melt the edges (for about 1-2 seconds) and press spheres together. Set balls aside to harden. Repeat until all spheres are made. Place in freezer for 10 minutes.
Add chocolate chips in a resealable sandwich bag but do not seal shut. Microwave chocolate chips for 30 seconds at 50% powder and knead the bag until chocolate is melted.
Seal the bag and snip the tip of the bag. Use the chocolate to add a dollop of chocolate onto the seam of the spheres.
Add a single, whole, white candy melt. Gently press to affix.
Let stand to harden. Use the same chocolate to outline the ball. Repeat until all cocoa bombs are made.
To make hot cocoa, heat milk until hot but not boiling.
Place bomb into a mug and pour milk over the bomb, melting it. Stir to melt completely and enjoy.
Is Hot Cocoa Powder necessary? Adding hot cocoa powder is entirely optional as the Poke Balls themselves are made FROM chocolate. Its not necessary to add additional powder unless you want to.
The red chocolate will dye the milk a pink/red color.
Colored mini marshmallows work great but dehydrated marshmallows are also a lot of fun.
To remove plastic smell from molds: Boil the molds to remove the smell prior to use.
