Five Friday Faves-Edition #4
What is Your Favorite Hot Cocoa Bomb Flavor?
If you have been following us for very long, you know that the product that we came up with, the Hot Cocoa Bomb, is what motivated us to start this blog. We have some new developments happening with Hot Cocoa Bombs coming next week! We are so excited! So in order to kick off this exciting stuff, I decided that this weeks question for Friday Faves should be about our beloved Bombs themselves. We have come up with a lot of flavor variations for the Bombs and we even made Sugar Free Bombs this year! Everyone has their favorites.
Madalynn was the first to answer me when I asked the question because she wanted to make sure no one else took her favorite. It is Salted Caramel. She loves the caramel flavor in many things and that holds true for her Hot Cocoa Bomb. Salted Caramel has really been a trend the last couple of years, so we came up with a Hot Cocoa Bomb version in 2015. It was a big hit.
Alicia answered next. I guessed her choice because she came up with the idea to create this flavor, Cinnamon Hot Cocoa Bombs. At first I thought they would be too close to Pumpkin Pie Spice, but they really are different and delicious! And, I loved the way we decorated them for Christmas.
Speaking of Pumpkin Pie Spice, you can all guess whose favorite flavor those are! That's right, Lindsey! She says that she loves them made with dark chocolate and that the pumpkin pie spices always make her feel like fall and comforting pumpkin pie. There is nothing more satisfying when you are cold. (Except for the chili and corn bread that she mentioned two weeks ago, Ha Ha!).
I love all of the flavors of our Bombs, but I do remember the first time I tasted a cherry cordial how amazed I was at how well it came out and tasted like an actual chocolate covered cherry candy. So, I am picking Cherry Cordial, one of our most popular flavors.
This week we have a special guest sharing her favorite flavor of the Cocoa Bomb. It is Anita of the great Facebook Page, Craftastico! She is the wonderful hostess of the Ugly Sweater Express that we take part in each year. She is my DIL's mom and a very talented lady. You should check out her page, she has so many great ideas on there, I am always amazed. Anita's favorite flavor of Hot Cocoa Bomb is Peppermint. It is one of our original flavors, a traditional idea for hot chocolate, and extremely delicious! Anita adds that it is a perfect flavor for Christmas and also is good for clearing your head when you have a cold! Ha Ha!
Some people just love the plain, original chocolate while others really enjoy the peanut butter that we added this year. Remember that we have a tutorial for making Hot Cocoa Bombs here. You can order the mold here. There is even a holiday version here. If you go to our Etsy shop, you can download and print our Hot Cocoa Bomb Idea Book that will help you be successful making Bombs and it gives you lots of ideas for flavors and decorating. Come back and see the exciting things going on around here with our Bombs, and try making them for yourselves! If you have already tried them, tell us your favorite flavors!

What a fabulous edition of Friday Faves. All those bombs look amazing. I think I'd have to choose Salted Caramel too. Thank you for sharing with us at Hearth and Soul. Hope to 'see' you again this week!
