Have you seen the new viral craze of hot cocoa bombs floating around the internet??? Ever since I saw a video on facebook about a month ago I have been wanting to try to make them for my own. I quickly searched Amazon and ordered molds which took a few weeks to get in. The hot cocoa bombs are relatively easy to make, they just take a bit of time.

The kids love watching the hot cocoa bombs disappear into a warm cup of milk. They also make cute gifts for friends, neighbors and teachers! Wrap up a hot cocoa bomb with a festive mug and you have an adorable and easy Christmas gift!

The molds are hard to find on Amazon, I ordered mine in October. I used these ones, and are currently still in stock!

If making them isn’t your thing you can find them in most stores, but hurry because they have become increasingly hard to find. I recently spotted them in Costco, Walmart and Target.

WHAT IS A HOT CHOCOLATE BOMB?

A hot chocolate bomb is made with melted chocolate wafers, hot cocoa mix and marshmallows. You can make them with all different types of chocolates. I used Ghiradelli Dark Chocolate Melting Wafers, as well as the milk chocolate and white chocolate.
