If you are active in instagram, you must be aware of the latest trend, hot chocolate bombs that are all rage this season. Marshmallows, confetti and cocoa wrapped in a chocolate shell which when dipped in hot milk, yields a sinful and creamy cup of hot chocolate. A warm drink that is mostly enjoyed during winters can now be easily made at home.
Hot chocolate bombs involve same ingredients as that of the original hot chocolate recipe. The interesting thing is that it is presented beautifully in a form of a ball decorated and filled with sprinklers and confetti. All the components of hot chocolate are filled inside a molten chocolate bomb and then refrigerated in order to harden up, with ingredients inside. Once the hot chocolate bombs are made, hot creamy milk is poured over them to explode.
Being a home baker, I have also tapped into this funny trend. These are super magical and delicious way to make hot cocoa and also are a good gifting option. When followed a correct recipe they turn out to be super scrumptious and mouth melting. I experimented a little with the flavor and size and made various flavors like Nutella, classic, white chocolate with butterscotch and chocochips. Making these ia fun and interesting. I decided to make these after seeing the trend on social media. It is an exciting way of drinking hot chocolate and is perfect for the season.
Though they are simple to make but require patience and precision. Hot chocolate shells are delicate and must be handled with care. For making bombs, you need to melt chocolate and put them into moulds to make some. Then put some marshmallows, cocoa and candies or confetti and seal them with another shell. The only thing that needs to be care of is that chocolate bombs tend to break if you don’t handle them properly. But again, they look pretty and are a beautiful gift to give to friends or family.
