Ok, so I’m a little late to the bomb party. How is it that I’m just discovering the Hot Cocoa Bombs. When my co-worker asked me about them I was confused. My mind instantly went to bath bombs. Wow. The Hot Cocoa Bomb is a ball of delicious goodness sent from Heaven and the holidays would not be complete without them.

The Hot Cocoa Bombs first became popular because of TikTok. The hot trend (no pun intended) went viral on TikTok and Instagram where millions of videos have been posted using the hashtags #hotchocolatebombs.

If you have no clue what I’m talking about, a hot cocoa bomb is a new way to enjoy hot chocolate. It’s a cute little ball of chocolate with hot chocolate mix and marshmallows inside of the ball. You are supposed to put the ball in your mug and pour steaming hot milk or water over it. That’s when the magic happens. The chocolate melts and causes an ‘explosion’ of sweetness into your mug.  It’s way more fun and festive to drink hot cocoa this way.

Costco started selling the bombs wrapped in festive foil making the perfect stocking stuffer. Now they are sold everywhere. Bakeries have started adding them to their shelves and people have even started making them at home. You can even find social media pages like “All things Hot Cocoa Bombs” on Facebook that is for users to discuss techniques and recipes.

Of course they come in different flavors like milk chocolate, S’Mores, Strawberry, Salted Caramel, and more. Simply brilliant.

Grab some hot cocoa bombs for Christmas and skip the old standard, boring way of hot cocoa.
