Hot chocolate bombs are the delicious treat you probably saw all over TikTok last holiday season — and for good reason. Watching the marshmallows burst from the center as the hard chocolate shell melts is oddly satisfying. (It’s kind of like watching a bath bomb dissolve.)
However, it’s not the easiest treat to make on your own. But if you’re determined, this hot chocolate bomb kit can definitely help you out.
Again, hot chocolate bombs are basically hard chocolate spheres containing hot cocoa powder and marshmallows. When placed in hot milk, the chocolate melts, releasing the cocoa powder inside, and the marshmallows then explode to the top of your cup. With a little stir, you have a deliciously rich and creamy cup of hot cocoa.
To make the sphere, you need the right mold. This Make Your Own Hot Chocolate Bombs Kit includes that specific mold, plus milk chocolate and vanilla melting wafers, cocoa powder, marshmallows and easy-to-follow instructions. It’s everything you need to make six perfect hot chocolate bombs.
This kit is the perfect gift for someone who loves chocolate and has a crafty side! But you could also get it for yourself to make hot chocolate bombs for you, your friends and family members. Heck, even your coworkers would probably enjoy receiving a hot chocolate bomb at their desk!
You can find the kit for $48 on Uncommon Goods, an online store that features small businesses and creators from across the country. The maker behind the Make Your Own Hot Chocolate Bombs Kit is Nila Nicholas, a first-generation American based in New Jersey with a penchant for confectionaries (especially marshmallows). She’s the founder of Candy With a Twist and has even been featured on the Today show.
If you’ve been craving a creamy cup of hot chocolate, make it extra fun and get Nicholas’ kit for making hot chocolate bombs at home.
