Take your hot chocolate to the next level with these indulgent chocolate bombes and stirrers.

We’re suckers for a novelty foodie item so this winter we’re planning on making our hot chocolate more exciting by getting stuck into the chocolate bombe trend. 

If you’re unfamiliar with chocolate bombes, let me explain. These typically circular balls of chocolate can be dunked into a mug of warm milk causing them melt, turning the milk thick with cocoa and whatever other surprises, like marshmallows or sweets

It’s the same idea as chocolate stirring spoons – wooden pegs with a chunk of chocolate attached (which we also love). Use them to stir your drinks to make them extra sweet and creamy.

As far as we’re concerned, this is the only way to go when it comes to making hot chocolate, especially this Christmas while we’re holed up inside and watching the best new festive films dropping on Netflix

If you can’t wait to try the most indulgent hot chocolate of your life then check out our round-up of the best chocolate bombes and stirrers out there.
