If you haven't heard of hot chocolate bombs, let me tell you, you're in for a treat.
Hot chocolate bombs are chocolate truffles that have been filled with hot chocolate and other goodies.
These truffles are placed into a mug of hot milk. No, they don't explode. But once they touch the hot milk, they melt into the drink.
Thus, you have a hot, sweet, and decadent hot beverage.
If you'd like to make your own hot chocolate bombs, check out the recipes i'm sharing in this post.
These delicious hot chocolate bombs make wonderful Christmas gifts too. In fact, one of the recipes below includes a free gift label printable.
