Chocolate bombs are hollow spheres of chocolate that have been melted and shaped into a shell. In the basic version, the inside is filled with hot chocolate mix and marshmallows.
To use, add a chocolate orb to a mug and pour hot milk over it, dissolving the outer shell. Stir well until all the ingredients are well combined. Enjoy!
Basic ones that don’t have any special filling can technically be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
However, if the cocoa bomb has special fillings (such as pudding, caramel sauce, etc.), they are susceptible to go bad faster.
Always follow the recommendations made for the specific chocolate bomb recipe you are using, and when in doubt, store them in the fridge.
