Ree Drummond isn’t the only one who’s not a reliable source for hot chocolate. In the days leading up to December rolling around, it seems that everyone is eager to switch up their coffee of the day for the cocoa. It’s not surprising. It’s the most popular festive drink, after all.
In recent times, it’s become easier than ever to indulge in your favorite cocoa thanks to a clever hot chocolate-inspired snack. “The “hot chocolate bomb,” as it’s been affectionately referred to in social media, and elsewhere is a bit like the chocolate truffle, however the inside is actually hollow, and usually filled with a single scoop of hot cocoa mix as well as mini marshmallows. Put it “bomb” inside a mug and pour hot milk over it. And you’ll be able to see why these adorables are gaining popularity in such a massive way. The cocoa and other ingredients are said to “explode” out of the bomb, and then into the milk.
It’s cool as all get out.
If are looking to go into the technical aspects of it, it’s less about explosiveness, and much more to do with the buoyancy marshmallows that stay on upper part of the cup as the outside inside”bombs “bomb” melts and falls to the bottom. It looks like an explosion and your kids (and yourself!) will be thrilled. Promise.
Here are the top hot chocolate-flavored bombs available, including unicorn-themed versions in the shape of snowmen and other options. All you need is the mug, milk, and of course the Hallmark film marathon! (Of course there are other options, but if you prefer to take the DIY method, you could get a mold from a store and start working on it, or whip up a gorgeous coffee board. You’ll be able to make it in either case. Cheers!)
