The hottest consumable St Nick’s Day and stocking stuffer craze is back for the 2022 holiday season! Hot chocolate bombs are spheres of thin chocolate filled with cocoa mix and fun surprises like marshmallows and candy pieces that pop open delightfully in hot milk.

Many coffee shops, bakeries, and chocolatiers are making them in Appleton, Green Bay, and spots in between. Perfect opportunity to support a local business!

We recommend checking with your chosen hot cocoa retailer before heading out. Be sure to order or pick up your hot chocolate bombs soon if they are on your shopping list, they sell out fast!
