  • Place wafers and vegetable oil in a microwaveable bowl, then microwave at 50% power for about 1 minute.

  • Place mold in the freezer for 3-5 minutes or until set. Invert and gently press to release cups. Repeat these steps as many times as you need to for the number of bombs you would like to make.
  • Place half of the cups in cupcake liners or back in the mold. (Helps with filling) Fill each half-sphere with cocoa mix and marshmallows.
  • Heat a small saucepan for about 5 minutes, then remove from heat. Rub an empty cup in a saucepan until the edge is slightly melted; quickly place on a filled half. Hold until sealed.
