I have checked the forecast. Cold. That’s it. And the best way to combat cold weather is to have warm treats inside your house.
Have you had the hot chocolate bombs that are all the rage right now? Bakeries and other stores are serving them, and I wanted to find a recipe where we could do this at home. I think I found the perfect one.
