Have you heard of cocoa bombs? Basically they are a hollow chocolate ball filled with marshmallows and hot cocoa mix (in a variety of flavors). The treat turns any mug of hot milk (or hot water) into a steaming mug of hot chocolate, complete with marshmallows, in a matter of seconds.
Since publishing – several have notified us that they are actually sold out. Let us know if there are any additional we should add to our list. These are a hot commodity!
Krenare’s Custom Desserts: Custom desserts with organic ingredients – with pickup in downtown Middleton.
The Chocolate Caper: Located in Oregon, WI they specialize in Swiss praline and truffles, caramels, turtles & a variety of innovative and traditional sweet treats.

If the above options are sold out or unable to fulfill your order — we’ve heard you can also find them at Costco or Target. Etsy also has them available to order online from small businesses – we are also huge fans of Vanilla Beans and Daydreams (she is an Iowa City mom who we have met a number of times). But we encourage you to support ‘local’ first if you are able!
Or if you want to try your hand at making them yourself – here is a how-to!
Did we miss a place? Let us know and we will add them… because cocoa bombs truly are the most bomb thing to happen in 2020. See what we did there??
