I went outside this morning and it was only 89 degrees out there! There were sprinkles of rain coming down and I was in Phoenix, AZ Heaven! I know the time is right to begin to make the Cocoa Bombs!
Actually, I have already made one batch this month. I am giving them away as thank yous to all of the people who helped with my daughters wedding. I made a couple salted caramel, some cherry cordial and the original marshmallow chocolate flavors. Maddy smelled the chocolate melting and said, "Ah, the smell of Cocoa Bombs!" If you want to remember how to make them,here is the tutorial! At the bottom of this page there is a link to purchase the molds I use! You get 2 molds for only $10.99! That is a really great price!
It really is time for me to get busy making the Hot Cocoa Bombs seriously because I have gotten the word that theUgly Sweater Express is back on this year! I have posted about our success at this event here and here. My daughter-in-law and her family host this event, and since she just had my grand baby number 7 a few months ago, we weren't sure if the tradition was going to carry on this year. But it is, and we are so excited about it. If you are a crafter in the Phoenix area, go to the Facebook page and find out how to get involved before all of the spots are taken. If you just like handmade items, go to the Facebook page and find out about when and where it is so you can come and see us. 3 Winks will be there and you can try a Hot Cocoa Bomb for yourself! Or, buy some for gifts! They make great Teacher Gifts for Christmas!
So, here is a question for you. I have considered offering Hot Cocoa Bombs for sale, just during the Holiday Season. Do you think I should? I would only be able to offer them within my state of AZ because of interstate commerce laws which vary and then fall under the rules of the Federal Government. So, AZ people, what do you think? Should I do a few months of online trade? Give me your opinion please!
