My boys and I jumped on the Instagram fad train and made hot cocoa bombs today. They are hollow chocolate balls filled with cocoa mix that you pour hot milk over so that the insides “explode.” I was excited to get the hang of tempering chocolate! We’ll see how well they work tonight.
I have a couple half-sphere molds, but there’re pretty small. The bigger ones here only held about a tablespoon of cocoa mix, and the smaller ones held a teaspoon. I think finding the molds on Amazon right now is pretty hit or miss since the bombs are a hot commodity. Here are some progress shots.
Boys are thrilled—keeping a five and six year old away from them so they don’t crush them with enthusiasm has been a challenge, lol. If I get a decent shot of them in action tonight I’ll post in the comments, but I actually think that videos I’ve seen so far are pretty anti-climactic. I’m sure kiddos will love them regardless.
