In a decorating bag, microwave Candy Melts Candy at half (50%) power 1 minute; knead bag. Microwave on 50% power in 30-second intervals, kneading between each, until melts are melted. Pipe the candy into each cavity, dividing evenly. Place in the refrigerator until set, about 30 minutes.
In medium bowl, whip heavy whipping cream and hot cocoa mix until stiff peaks form, about 2 minutes. Divide mixture evenly among shot glasses. Top with marshmallow bits, if desired. Serve immediately.
