Valentine’s Day is all about strawberry desserts and all-things chocolate: Chocolate bars, chocolate cakes, chocolate ice cream, and even chocolate roses to replace your typical bouquet. If you want to switch it up this year, you have to try chocolate bombs.
What are chocolate bombs?
Chocolate bombs offer a new way to enjoy hot chocolate. Similar to Kori Kohi, these bombs are chocolate spheres that are filled with a hot chocolate mix and commonly, marshmallows. You place one chocolate bomb in a glass and pour hot milk directly into it, then watch the magic happen.
The outer chocolate shell will melt away and then it will release all the chocolate and marshmallow inside to your milk. Stir well and drink!
It’s super satisfying to see these chocolate bombs explode:
