Have you recently been the recipient of a batch of hot chocolate bombs and found they’re not really to your taste, or perhaps you have gotten a bit fed up with consuming hot chocolate and want something else to do with the bombs?
Not to worry! These are surprisingly versatile, tasty gifts that can be turned into an array of different options to meet your palate and what you want to eat on almost any given day.
So, read on for some of the most interesting and perhaps unusual ways to make use of chocolate bombs.
The first option is a dessert topping. When you buy hot chocolate bombs at Dallmann, you will know that they have rich, smooth flavors, which can make them work as an excellent dessert topping. You have the option to either crumble the hot chocolate bomb over the ice cream, yogurt, or custard or to mix it in with cream or ganache to make an interesting sauce or addition to a sweet dessert.
Make sure that the taste combinations work before opting for this idea, and remove any hard or unmelted bits of the bombs from smooth sauces.
Speaking of chocolate ganache and melted chocolate, you can use the spare chocolate bombs that you have in your cupboard to make a fondue. This is not as complicated as it sounds. All you need to do is put the chocolate bomb into a microwave-safe bowl and add some milk. Once it has melted, you can use it as a dipping sauce for strawberries, marshmallows, and cookies. If your taste buds take you in this direction, why not opt to also use it as a sauce for sweet pretzels?
Coffee Flavoring or Enhancer
You may have noticed that hot chocolate bombs and coffee have a lot of taste combinations in common. So, why not use that to your advantage and try to add a piece of the hot chocolate bomb into a freshly brewed cup of hot coffee or an espresso? This can add a tasty and unusual chocolate twist! All you need to do is to stir the chocolate into the drink until it melts. If you are choosing to use a chocolate bomb that has nuts in it, be aware that these may need to be sifted out.
Like the dessert toppings, a chocolate bomb can go a long way toward creating an unusual milkshake taste and texture combination.
You have the option to either blitz the chocolate bomb and add it to the base mixture of your milkshake or to crumble it and add it to the topping. Or, why not mix it with the sauces you use on the top of the milkshake?
Remember, the mixtures of flavors are important here. You don’t want to add an unusual flavor, like a chocolate coffee bomb, to a strawberry milkshake unless you have some eclectic tastes or are simply trying something new!
