Where to Buy Hot Chocolate Bombs in Lakeland + Polk County

Hot Chocolate Bombs Lakeland Florida

Thank you 2020 for the gift of hot chocolate bombs! This trending edible gift is the newest way to make hot cocoa, just in time for the Christmas holidays.

Hot cocoa bombs are a hollow chocolate sphere {white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate} filled with cocoa powder and often have flavor added and candy canes, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, sprinkles, or other treats inside. You pour steaming hot milk over the chocolate shell and watch the chocolate ball burst open/melt, give it a stir, then enjoy a rich cup of hot cocoa. {PRO TIP – These would make a great holiday gift along with a cute new Christmas mug!}

Many attraction closures and event postponements have been announced beginning September 27 due to Hurricane Ian. We are editing our calendar and articles if we receive notice of event changes, but please be sure to check directly with organizers to confirm any events or activities from September 27 - October 2. A link is provided at the bottom of every event on our calendar and in all articles.

Maybe you’ve been searching Facebook for where to find hot chocolate bombs near you, or your kids have heard they are the rage and are begging to try them, or maybe you just want that extra special treat for the holiday season this year.

We’re here to help you find these cocoa-filled balls of goodness for your next special occasion or when you go out for a drive to see Christmas lights. So set your powdered hot cocoa mix aside {*but not too far…} and treat yourself to this new chocolate delight.

*Hot chocolate bombs aren’t an everyday item, they cost about the same as an entire box of hot chocolate mix. You should expect to pay anywhere from $2 – 8 per chocolate ball. One ball makes 1 cup of cocoa.
