If you’ve been on social media within the last month or so, you know that hot chocolate bombs are super trendy! These popular new treats are both fun to use and delicious to drink. If you haven’t heard of them yet, hot chocolate bombs are a sphere of chocolate stuffed with hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. When you pour hot milk over the hot chocolate bomb, it breaks open in your coffee mug and releases its contents, creating a yummy hot chocolate drink.

Hot chocolate bombs can be made of white chocolate, dark chocolate, or milk chocolate. Some are flavored with peppermint, caramel, or other flavors. They are typically spheres but can come in a variety of other shapes and sizes.

Hot chocolate bombs are super popular and our local shops have had trouble keeping them in stock! So be sure to follow these shops and businesses on Facebook so you know when they have their next batch ready!
