Last year, I posted this as the 10+ days of Hot Cocoa Bombs. Since then, we've come up with more flavors and ideas for Hot Cocoa Bombs and published a new e-book to teach you how to make the new flavors. So, I thought I would update these gift giving ideas. Many people have ordered and purchased them from me to use as simple friend gifts or teachers gifts. They have become a tradition for many over the last few years. You could even go to our Etsy shop and purchase one or two of our books and give it as a gift along with the mold and perhaps some marshmallows as well. Or, just the book and a few bombs that you made yourself! As you look through this post, I hope it gets your creative juices flowing.
Since we came up with the idea for Hot Cocoa Bombs©, Christmas just isn't Christmas without them. Last year for Christmas, I gave each of my kid's families their own Hot Cocoa Bomb© kit so that they can make their own without waiting for me to give them some Cocoa Bomb deliciousness. (You can order your own Cocoa Bomb Mold here and the Hot Cocoa Bomb Idea Book© here, as well as the new Fall Flavors Hot Cocoa Bomb Book).
Last year, we didn't take part in a craft show where we sold Hot Cocoa Bombs and a number of people contacted me to find out why not! I felt bad about it because so many people use Hot Cocoa Bombs as gifts to teachers and neighbors. I did create a collection of bombs for a friend to give to her High School Choir class. This year, we hosted a Craft Boutique on Facebook and actually sold Hot Cocoa Bombs from our shop! If you would like to do some Christmas Shopping, the boutique links are still open. so click on over there!
At this point of this 2020 year, we have created more flavors that will be awesome to give as gifts. So, I present to you The 12 Days of Hot Cocoa Bombs©! Now, All you have to do is decide which ones you would choose to fill your stockings for the 12 Days of Hot Cocoa Bomb Christmas!
The 12 Days of Hot Cocoa Bombs©!
On the first day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas my true love gave to me an Original Hot Cocoa Bomb under my tree! (click to the link of our original post).
On the the next 3 days of Cocoa Bomb Christmas, he gave me some spice! Pumpkin Pie, Cinnamon and Gingerbread really are nice! (Every year the decorations on the bombs change!)
On the 5th day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas, I got something to help me sing! A Hot Cocoa Bomb© with a peppermint zing!
On the 6th day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas, I got something salty and sweet! A Salted Caramel Cocoa Bomb to sip, not to eat! (Here is an opportunity to enlarge this gift with whipped cream and salted caramel syrup!)
On the 7th day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas, I knew he loved me like "no udder," when he gave me a bomb made with peanut butter!
On the 8th day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas my love put in my mug to steam, a bomb made of Cookies and Cream! (This was a new flavor last year! A mug is an obvious gift to go with a Hot Cocoa Bomb©.)
You may have figured out that my true love is worth his salt! He gave me a Hot Cocoa Bomb with chocolate malt!
On the 10th Day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas, my true love passed the test when he gave be a Cherry Cordial Bomb, it's the BEST!
On the 11th day of Cocoa Bomb Christmas I couldn't let my true love forget the Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cocoa Bomb with a video yet! (The video shows you how to make them!)
On the 12th day of Hot Cocoa Bomb Christmas, I was filled with cheer when he gave me a Magical Butterscotch Bomb, or in other words, Butterbeer!
Here is a final bonus flavor to help you celebrate the New Year! Tuxedo Black and White! Now, this bomb has class!
Here are a few more gifting ideas!
Now, all you have to do is wrap them up (or not, but I do and I use these bags), create your own label and present them in a box, or on a tray (another gift!) or on a pear tree! Oh! I just thought of that! They could hang like little ornaments!
I would love to see pictures and ideas of your Hot Cocoa Bombs© and how you decorate and present them! Trust me, they are going to be a gift that people will want year after year!
