Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I have a SUPER fun post for you. I’m over the moon excited because this project is one part craft, one part recipe and a whole lot of fun. It makes an excellent handmade gift for Christmas. We’re making DIY Peppermint Hot Chocolate Bombs!

I love the idea of making these for stocking stuffers and having a saucepan of hot milk on the stove all prepared for making Christmas morning hot chocolate!

Join the homemade hot chocolate bomb craze!

Don’t know what hot chocolate bombs are? They are the newest Pinterest craze! They are delicious balls of chocolatey goodness stuffed full of hot chocolate mix, mini marshmallows and other hot chocolate toppings (in this case peppermint candy). Put one into a mug, pour hot milk on top and watch as your hot chocolate bomb explodes revealing marshmallows and hot chocolate toppings. Give your mug a stir and you have an instant cup of hot chocolate as well as an instagramable moment!
