Remember the time when making dalgona coffee was your makeshift workout? Followed up with testing your patience when the internet forced you to make bite-sized pancake cereal. Now, just in time for the festive season, a new viral food trend has reigned supreme: meet hot chocolate bombs. Whether you’re a chocolate fiend or stray away from everything sweet, these bombs come packed with a superpower—it can seriously lure you in. Not only will it force you to roll your sleeves up in the kitchen but also make you lounge around with a cup of warm milk.

For the unfamiliar, hot chocolate bombs are chocolate orbs or spheres filled with cocoa powder, marshmallows, sprinkles and other sugary goodies. Once popped inside a cup of milk, the bombs melt and open up dramatically, creating a decadent cup of hot chocolate. Your job? Just stir and sip. Here’s an inside scoop on what goes down:

Call it a brainchild of the world wide web or a sweet devil, but the fact remains that hot chocolate bombs are here for good. With temperatures dropping and holiday movies on repeat, this seems like an indulgence to make it only better. Lest you despise a sugar rush, you can’t compete with the visually compelling and viral glory of hot chocolate bombs.

Here’s how you can make one at home.

Ingredients:

Chocolate
Silicone mould
Cocoa powder
Marshmallows
Sprinkles (optional)
And if you’re feeling extra, then pop in anything sweet that your heart desires.

Method:

Melt the chocolate and spread in a circular mould. Leave it in the fridge to harden.

Add the marshmallows, sprinkles etc. in one of the spheres and ‘glue’ with the other sphere by melting the chocolate on edge.

That’s all!

Go all out with icing sugar, sugar hearts or stars, edible glitter and decorate the bombs. PS. It’s a no judgement zone during the holidays.

Succeeded in making the hot chocolate bombs look bougie? Why not gift them to your loved ones? Our say: make packs of three bombs packed with cute ribbons and gift paper. Not only is it a great handmade gifting idea but also perfect for Christmas.

Afterall, ‘tis the season of family, friends and food.
