I’ve never been a big fan of hot chocolate unless it’s made with real cocoa and milk. I don’t like the instant cocoa you get from coffee shops or the cocoa you mix with water. No thank you.

But when I heard about this new thing called DIY Hot Chocolate Bombs, I was intrigued.

I love that they are fresh hot cocoa bombs, using real, melted chocolate. I love the amount of time and creativity put into them and I think that hot chocolate bombs are great gifts and would brighten up any ones day and taste buds!

I jumped on the Cocoa Bomb wagon with all the Tik Tokers and made some of my own. My favorite are the Christmas Cocoa Bombs, but I also love the Proposal Cocoa Bombs because it comes with a little surprise in it, also like my Valentine’s Cocoa Bomb.

I found some fantastic ideas using candy melts and hot chocolate mix and just took it from there!
