I’m here to say that this is the best time of year, hands down. It’s getting chilly out, which means gorgeous knits and comfy boots. There’s plenty to watch on TV while we’re staying cosy in our dressing gowns in the evenings. The food gets more comforting and tasty by the day, it’s safe to say I am here for hot chocolate season.

So you can only imagine my reaction when those hot chocolate bomb videos started popping up on every platform, to be honest, I’m surprised you haven’t heard me gasp from my little apartment when the chocolatey goodness dissolved, wherever you are.

If, by the slightest chance you haven’t come across any of these hot chocolate bomb videos, let me fill you in. Essentially, you start off with a ball of chocolate (so good already, and we haven’t even peaked). When the ball of hallow chocolate, or chocolate bomb, comes in contact with hot milk, it dissolves and an assortment of marshmallows and even more chocolate is revealed. Then, a quick stir and you have a divine hot chocolate. *chef’s kiss*
