Hi Crafty Friends! Christmas is going to be here before you know it, so today I thought I’d share with you one of my favorite foodie gift ideas– hot chocolate bombs!
I love making hot cocoa bombs because they are one part craft, one part recipe and a whole lot of fun. Hot chocolate bombs were the food trend of fall 2020/ winter 2021 and they have not gone anywhere ever since.
They look super impressive but they are fairly simple to make and a fun way to spend the afternoon in the kitchen with your kids!
The concept of hot chocolate bombs is fairly simple– melt candy melts, chocolate chips or chocolate bars in a double boiler or the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals.
Pour a thin layer of the the melted chocolate into a silicone candy mold, and allow to harden into a delicious chocolate shell.
Fill the half sphere with hot cocoa mix, mini marshmallows, chopped up candy canes or your choice of other delicious flavors.
Next use melted chocolate to seal the two half of your spheres together.
Drizzle with melted chocolate and top with sprinkles, or hints at the ingredients that or inside!
How To Serve A Hot Chocolate Bomb
When your ready to serve, put a hot chocolate bomb into a mug, pour hot milk on top, stir with a spoon and watch the hot chocolate bomb explode into a cup of hot chocolate goodness!
These yummy chocolate spheres are so easy to customize with different sizes and shapes of silicone molds! You can make them with white chocolate, milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, dark chocolate or melting wafers!
You can also customize them with different flavors of hot chocolate mix, your fillings and colors/flavors of drizzle on top!
