Step 6

To seal two halves of the chocolate bomb together, start by heating a plate in the microwave (or a pan on the stove) and gently place the rim of an empty half onto the heated surface to allow it to melt slightly. This should only take a few seconds. Once slightly melted place quickly onto the rim of a filled half and allow the chocolate to set.

Step 7

Melt the white chocolate wafers in the microwave as you did for the chocolate in step 2 and use a piping bag (or simply a spoon filled with melted chocolate) to drizzle onto the bomb. Allow to set and then repeat for the pink.
