Looking for a fun twist on Hot Chocolate? These Hot Chocolate Bombs are so fun and easy to make for the family! They are filled with chocolate chips and marshmallows and melt into a tasty warm beverage.
2020 has been a journey, am I right? I must say though, who thought that hot chocolate would be a highlight?! I just want to personally thank whomever came up with the idea for Hot Chocolate Bombs because they are the coolest!
What are hot chocolate bombs?Well friends, they are the hottest new treat! You basically melt delicious hot chocolate, set it in a mold, fill it with yummy goodness (In our case here it’s white chocolate chips, marshmallows and instant cocoa mix).
You combine all of these awesome ingredients in a pretty chocolate ball, drop it in piping hot milk and baby you have got a fun treat! There are many ways to make it, but I’ve got a pretty easy and fun recipe for you today.
Why go through the trouble of making these treats?
Because it’s fun! They are fun to give as gifts, they are even more fun for a movie night (YEAR ROUND). I love the drama of these too, yes, it’s one hot chocolate drink but the payoff is so worth it!
Yes there is a lot of set time and care put into these bombs. There must be a lot of patience when making these, you have to create the molds, fill in the ingredients, then wait again for everything to come together perfectly. These hot chocolate bombs are certainly a labor of love.
What can I put in my chocolate bombs?
Anything you want really. I’ve seen so many things–candy, peanut butter, mint chocolate–basically any flavor that will go well with chocolate. I wouldn’t go TOO crazy though, the basic recipe is just perfect enough! I won’t be mad if you decide to add some razzle dazzle.
Try it out! Have fun and enjoy!
