The dregs of our pumpkin spice lattes aren’t even cold yet, but we’ve already moved on to the next delicious cold-weather beverage trend: hot cocoa bombs. Suddenly, these marshmallow-filled chocolate balls are all over TikTok, and we’ll admit it — we’re kind of obsessed. (And our kids? Don’t even get us started.) We were thrilled when we discovered them at Costco recently, and now — joy! — hot cocoa bombs are back at Target.
Yes, back. Last year, our favorite big-box retailer debuted these chocolate-y balls of goodness as part of its Wondershop line, and this year, the bombs have returned to the lineup of fun, festive, and perfectly giftable holiday foods.
As we’d expect from Target, they’re nicely priced, too, so you can grab a few for yourself as well as for all of the hot cocoa-lovers on your list: The hot chocolate drink bombs are available in single-serve packages for $1.99 or in an adorably festive Advent Triangle gift box of six for $7.99. Either way, we think they’re the perfect stocking stuffer.
While the multi-pack of hot cocoa bombs we spied at Costco come in an assortment of flavors, including salted caramel, s’mores and —we’re a little less sure of this one — strawberry, the Wondershop bombs stick to the good old fashioned combo of milk chocolate and marshmallows. And in case you’re new to this heavenly hot cocoa trend and haven’t seen any of the amazing TikTok videos, here’s what happens: You just pop a hot cocoa bomb in your mug, add hot milk, stir — and watch the magic happen.
