Where to Find Hot Cocoa Bombs in Chicago’s Western Suburbs

Kid-Friendly Restaurants

Trend alert! Hot cocoa bombs are the hot item to keep us cozy this winter: a hard chocolate shell that holds hot chocolate mix and marshmallows or other candies. When you add hot milk, the shell melts and opens up so you can mix in the the cocoa and toppings. There are different varieties of flavors and toppings. Watching a hot cocoa bomb open is quite mesmerizing, and has definitely brought some warm memories for my family this winter!
