What are hot chocolate bombs made of?
The basic idea of a hot chocolate bomb is a chocolate outer shell, filled with mini marshmallows plus chocolate milk powder. Easy and sweet, but there are so many options and hundreds of variations. Actually, you can use your favorite hot chocolate toppings inside of your hot chocolate bombs.
How do you Serve cocoa bombs?
Place your hot chocolate bomb into the cup you plan to serve it in. That is, your favorite mug.
Heat up some milk and pour it over the hot cocoa bomb. Now watch the magic happen: the chocolate slowly melting, the bomb splitting and mini marshmallows popping up. Fun!
Don't forget to decorate with a cute mug rug, for an extra touch of coziness and a handmade feel! But first, let's make a few hot chocolate balls.

A HACK - How do you make a hot chocolate bomb without a mold?
The easiest way? A hack actually. You can use existing chocolate figurines - If you have kids, I'm sure you've got a few in your pantry left after the end of the Christmas gifting season - I usually need to hide a few, as the 'Santa season' is really really too generous on us with chocolate. Just make sure you use the small ones, the size will need to fit your mug.
Simple how-to: unwrap the figure, use a hot knife to cut it carefully in ahlf without breaking the chocolate into pieces, then fill. Once filled with your favorite mixture, heat up a pan and place the edge of the empty half of the figure on it. the edge will melt a bit, forming a temporary stitcky layer you need to place back onto the first half. Chocolate figure sealed, your hot chocolate bomb is ready!
