Tips and Hints To Keep in Mind
- Don’t get hung up thinking you have to use chocolate chips to make homemade hot cocoa bombs. Chocolate chips are just difficult and lumpy when melted!
- Use candy melts, particularly when you’re working with white or dark chocolate – both of these chocolate types can be temperamental. Candy melts are smooth and prepped for actually being melting and molded. Pick up dark chocolate melting discs like this and make things easier on yourself.
- That little sweet touch of raspberry is everything when combined with the dark chocolate. These dark chocolate hot cocoa bombs have to be shelf stable for longer than you can do with a fresh raspberry, however. I used a bag of freeze-dried raspberries like this and found a way to make use of both the raspberry powder and the whole berries!
- When the chill hits and you’re craving that chocolate, ready to use your dark chocolate raspberry bombs, just pop them into your favorite coffee mug, heat-up about a cup of milk, and pour it directly over that bomb. Your hot chocolate bomb will float and as it melts, it will “explode!”
