Cocoa Bomb Question
Old 12-19-2020, 08:13 PM

I saw the post below for the hot chocolate bombs and it got me thinking. I hope someone can clarify this for me.

So, on the last day before break, someone from the parents club was delivering gifts and she handed me this chocolate ball & told me it was a cocoa bomb. She didn't say hot cocoa bomb but my DD insists that is what it is. I had never heard of this. It is the size of a big apple. Could it really be a hot cocoa bomb? It seems too big for that. Or it's for five people or something.

Thoughts?

I have a friend that makes them . I know at social distance cookie exchange she said the big one was for 16 Oz. You might google and check it out.

The cocoa bombs I've seen are huge! And most of the recipes I've seen call for 1.5-2 cups of milk instead of the typical 6-8 oz of the packets.

Watch Youtube videos on how to make them and then the demonstration on how to actually use it. I learned that I'll never make one but look forward to enjoying the ones I was gifted.

I used mine the other day, and it was a thing of beauty . I should’ve recorded it . I used hot water and just poured it over the bomb and it opened up and marshmallows came frothing out.

Hot Cocoa Bombs

They are big! There's no way I can drink it in one sitting. They also cost about $7 each, making them more expensive than a visit to Starbucks. So enjoy it as the treat it is and be ready to counteract the sugar high.

Many sizes

Yes, the real big ones have real mini marshmallows in them. The first ones I bought, had the little tiny marshmallows like in hot cocoa packets.

I do love them; I make mine with milk.

Mine looked big, but it did fit in a coffee mug. I'd try it in the coffee mug. If it doesn't fit, maybe put in a pot or a bowl to make and then share it with someone.

Thank you, everyone! I did Google it after DD told me about it but all the ones I saw seemed more golf ball size.

I look forward to checking it out. I’ll have to make sure DD is around to share it with me!

I just made some last night for fun. Mine were the size of cupcake wrappers because that’s what I used for a mold with a flat disk top. It was perfect for about 12 oz of milk making extra chocolatey cocoa.

I think there are two kinds - the big ones have cocoa powder & marshmallows inside and you add milk to it and the little ones just have marshmallows and you add it to cocoa.

I bought some and they are pretty big- like the size of a cupcake. I have a former parent who has been advertising really huge ones for the crockpot on FB!! They are the size of a cantaloupe!
