Scoop the chocolate into balls. Prepare a baking sheet with wax paper or a silicone baking mat. With a small scoop or spoon, scoop the chocolate mixture on to the baking sheet. Place the baking sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes or until the balls are cool enough to roll in your hands.
Roll into balls. Roll each scoop of chocolate into a ball. Dust with powdered sugar if desired. Wrap individually in wax paper or place into a Ziploc bag or storage container with a lid and freeze until you're ready to use.
⭐️Serve. To serve, place 1 hot chocolate bomb into a microwave safe mug with 1 cup of milk or water. Heat for 1 -2 minutes then stir and serve.
Swap almond extract for vanilla or peppermint extract for a new flavor. Try white, dark, or milk chocolate chips rather than semi-sweet.
