How To Use Hot Chocolate Bombs

  • When you’re ready to use your hot chocolate bomb, place the ball on its seam in a mug.
  • Pour steaming, piping hot milk on the seam to help it open and reveal the contents inside.
  • Stir well to mix completely and enjoy!

Notes

When coating the sides of the mold, pay careful attention to the rim as the chocolate spheres will need to be able to be “glued” together.  If you don't fully coat the mold, the two pieces won’t fit.
