Easy Toffee Hot Chocolate Bombs

The first set of these I made with milk chocolate but then I switched up a second set with half milk and half dark chocolate and it was even better so if you like the bitterness of the dark chocolate then I really recommend that you give it a try.

When making these we advise using the silicone molds they are much easier to use than more professional ones and great for making these for the family.
