-The Polar Express

Hot chocolate was a hit with the passengers on the Polar Express, and you will love this concept that takes it to the next level. This is exponentially better than just syrup or powder mixed with milk. Think of a hollow chocolate sphere filled with cocoa mix and mini-marshmallows. Imagine dropping it into a mug, then adding hot milk or coffee. Then, watch in amazement as the outer shell melts and the bomb explodes into a delicious winter beverage.

Hot chocolate bombs are everything right now. You can follow the tutorial in the video at the bottom of the page and make your own at home or stop into one of these four Kalamazoo area shops to try the latest libation.
