Here are two of our favorite hot chocolate bomb recipes that are crowd pleasers.
What Kind of Chocolate is Best for Hot Chocolate Bombs?
When it comes to hot chocolate bombs, the type of chocolate you use is really up to you. If you want a rich and creamy drink, then milk chocolate is a good option. However, if you prefer a darker chocolate flavor, then dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate are both good choices. Whatever type of chocolate you use, be sure to choose a high quality brand that will melt easily and create a smooth drink.
How Long Do Homemade Hot Cocoa Bombs Last?
If stored in an airtight container, hot chocolate bombs will last for up to 2 weeks. However, they are best used within the first week or so after they are made. This is because the marshmallows tend to absorb moisture from the air and can make the bombs slightly less fresh over time.
How Much Milk Do You Put in a Hot Chocolate Bomb?
The amount of milk you add to your hot chocolate bomb will depend on how strong you want the drink to be. For a rich and creamy drink, use about 1/2 cup of milk per bomb. If you prefer a weaker drink, then you can use 1/4 cup of milk per bomb. Simply add the desired amount of milk to your mug and then place the hot chocolate bomb in the liquid to melt.
