    3. Place 3/4 tablespoon melted red candy mixture into each cavity.

    5. Refrigerate 5 minutes.
    6. Rinse out melting pot (or glass bowl) and repeat steps 1 to 4.
    7. Refrigerate 15 minutes, until shells have set.
    8. Carefully pop shells out of mold; place on parchment paper.
    9. Fill half of the shells with 1 heaping tablespoon each of hot cocoa mix, mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and mini marshmallows.
    10. Heat a microwave safe plate in microwave for 1 minute or until very warm.
    11. Place open side of each remaining shell down onto warm plate to soften edges.
    12. Press each top shell down gently onto a filled bottom shell, fitting halves together to seal to make round cocoa bombs.

    14. Thoroughly clean melting pot (or glass bowl). Fill with white chocolate baking chips; attach lid. 
    15. Microwave 30 seconds at 50% power and stir. Repeat until chips are just melted. Allow to cool down some.
