Hot chocolate bombs are not only all the rage this holiday season, but they are delicious and fun, too. Drop one in a mug of hot milk or milk alternative, or pour milk on top of it, and watch the tasty bomb melt to reveal the cocoa mix and marshmallows inside. Mix it all together, take a sip of cocoa and enjoy. Pick up a couple of cocoa bombs at these local shops and bakeries.
