12 DIY Hot Chocolate Bomb Recipes

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.
