Place candy melts in separate microwave safe bowls and melt in the microwave per the directions on the package.
Using a piping bag, pipe stripes of chocolate candy melts into each of the mold shapes, about ½ inch apart.
Place the chocolate lined bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove the molds from the freezer and place 1 tbsp melted white candy melts into one half of a bomb mold and, using the bottom of your tablespoon measuring spoon, press the chocolate up the sides of the mold, keeping it thick but even, attempting to work the white chocolate into the dark chocolate to reduce any air bubbles. Repeat with 12 bomb mold halves.
Place the chocolate filled bomb molds into the freezer for 5 minutes.
Remove molds from the freezer and gently tap the sides of the mold, pressing on one side of the chocolate to make the chocolate slide out of the mold.
Fill 6 of the molds with 1 tbsp hot chocolate mix, 1 peanut butter candy, and 6-8 mini marshmallows.
Heat a plate or a flat-bottom bowl in the microwave until the surface of the plate is warm to the touch.
Press one of the empty chocolate bomb halves open-side-down onto the flat portion of the warm plate for about 10 seconds. This will gently melt the rim of the chocolate cup.
Immediately press this warmed edge chocolate cup to the top of one of the filled cups. This will join the two halves of the hot cocoa bomb.
Using a piping bag or a fork, drizzle a small amount of the remaining candy melts on top of the assembled hot cocoa bombs then immediately follow by pressing a second peanut butter candy on top.
Place the hot cocoa bombs into the freezer for 5 minutes to get them to set, then remove and store in an airtight container until you’re ready to use.
To use the hot cocoa bombs, place them in a mug and pour 2 cups hot milk over the top. Stir until the hot cocoa bombs are completely melted and enjoy!
