Other recipes for hot chocolate bombs are also delicious but are a bit more labor intensive. By using a chocolate egg like the famous Kinder Joy Egg, you save so much time. No complicated molds or long cooling time. To seal the egg, you just need to warm up the shells a bit on a warm plate. That’s all. It really is that simple. Then pour hot milk over your chocolate bombs and see it dissolve and release its yummy contents.
You can wrap your Kinder Egg hot chocolate bomb in cellophane or a small box and gift it to your friends.
