Begin by placing the white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, and melt in the microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until smooth and creamy.

Stir the chocolate until the colors are smooth, and add a little more food coloring gel if you want the colors to be brighter. (If you only want to use 2 or 3 colors, only use 2 or 3 cups to divide the chocolate).

Pour the excess white chocolate back into the bowl, and place the molds in the refrigerator, and let harden for 15 minutes.

Remove from the skillet, and immediately place on one of the chocolate balls, filled with the cocoa, etc., making the top of the ball/bomb.

Hold in place for a few seconds to make sure the top and bottom are melted together.
