MINNEAPOLIS, Minn — The leaves are falling and there is definitely a crisp in the air, which means it's that time of year for a hot cup of cocoa! If you've never heard of a Cocoa Bomb, you're in for a real treat.
The cocoa bomb is a chocolate ball filled with cocoa mix, and jam packed with marshmallows. Once you pour hot water or milk over the cocoa bomb, it explodes with baby 'mallows and chocolatey goodness. Jen Bloom from Lil Turtle Sweets shares her recipe with us ahead of her Falloween Porch Pop-Up happening on Thursday, Oct. 28 -Saturday Oct. 30.
Here's what you'll need:
- Chocolate Almond Bark
- Chocolate Candy Melts
- Mini Marshmallows
- Cocoa Powder
- Silicone Chocolate Bomb Mold
Melt the chocolate according to the package. Spread chocolate inside of mold and then tip the mold over onto a piece of parchment paper to get excess chocolate out. Let the chocolate cool for a few minutes to harden.
Once the chocolate is hardened you can fill the half sphere with 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and a big handful of marshmallows. Take another half sphere and warm the edges on a warm griddle. Seal the bomb using your finger.
Decorate to your liking, dump warm milk on it in a mug and ENJOY!
