Hot chocolate bomb things, worth it?

Ive seen these have become fashionable... Are they any good or do you just get a random sugary mess in a cup of warm milk?!

My husband had one at a restaurant a few months back and it looked crap to be honest. I didn't have one as I don't do diary, but he seemed less than impressed. Once the chocolate had melted, the milk had barely changed colour (as you'd expect from something like a hot chocolate) Not very chocolatey at all was the over all impression.

A Lindor truffle with milk (or coffee) poured over is delicious and blends much better.

I’ve bought some from Home Bargains for stockings. £1 each.

They might be shit but at least I haven’t spent much!

Oh I was wondering about these. Have been debating getting these for christmas eve, getting normal stirrers or just getting a tub of either hotel chocolat or whittards chocolate...

Aldi have a cheaper version

Not tried it yet but I got a vegan one for DD ( regular marshmallows aren't vegetarian) its dark chocolate so should be quite flavoursome

This is a fantastic idea!

I was going to make some, as forking out for 5 of us costs a small fortune.

Plus I get to eat the extrasgrin

Saw something online where someone used kinder eggs- opened them, removed toy, replaced with cocoa and marshmallows, then melted the edges slightly to reseal. Might have a go

I saw that too @Bustenhalter it looked good didn't it.

Although it looked a massive faff and I am
Not sure if I could pull it off.

I bought some from a lady at The Chocoate Barn ( ), I have to admit they were the most delicious hot chocolates I have ever had!

I got a couple of the 99p ones from Home Bargains. My kids thought they were really nice, and they did look and smell good, so they were worth the money. It's a nice novelty anyway.

Oooh the lintle idea brilliant.

Are we just talking about a block of chocolate attached to a wooden spoon here?!

I literally thought about doing this a few days ago after watching several make your own hot chocolate bomb videos.

Last time I melted chocolate I totally burnt it and it ceased in to an inedible rock,

But I quite liked the idea of making a rich hot chocolate that way.

Thank you for confirming it does actually work

These are loved by my DD

No not quite, but I’m sure it does come from the lump of chocolate attached to a spoon/popicle stick that you stirred in your hot milk that was a tread a few years ago.

No it’s a chocolate shell that has a bit of cocoa power, and maybe some extras (marshmallows, Nutella, chilli, sprikles that will float) it’s put in a mug or tall glass and you pour you hot milk over it

I’m going to try making chocolate stirrers by pouring melted chocolate into an ice cube tray then sticking a mint candy cane in. Then it’s a hot mint chocolate stirrer grin

This is what people are meaning

I tried the coop one. Not worth the money in my opinion much prefer to make my own for cheaper.

Starlightstarbright1 Tue 08-Dec-20 20:54:27

I saw my friends picture of one i think her child must of dropped it in from a big height🙈

user1936863452 Tue 08-Dec-20 20:55:47

RizzleDrizzle Oh, I see. Thank you for explaining. I only managed to spot the stirrer things when I followed the other link upthread.

Fun idea. Not sure I have the patience necessary!

I make stirrers, they are lovely, very easy, make four for £2.
