Cocoa Bombs

We rated this book:


This joyful little book walks you through all the steps to creating your own cocoa bombs, with variations to suit all tastes and seasons. Following the clear directions on tempering chocolate removed a lot of the trepidation about using real chocolate, and I loved the suggestion to use a pastry brush for filling molds. My favorite bombs so far are just basic dark chocolate, which have a beautiful dark gloss and look great decorated with contrasting chocolate drizzle. They taste great too! But you’ll also want to try variations like white chocolate with strawberry or caramel, milk chocolate with butterscotch or French vanilla, or adding cinnamon and cayenne pepper for a Mexican twist. Then dress up your creations with festive décor and fillings– make a snowman or unicorn, or gild with edible glitter, or surprise your guests with shaped marshmallows. Once you get the hang of spheres, try other shapes; the author shows ducks and hearts, but I found Christmas tree and snowflake molds to be lots of fun too! This book gives you all the tools to make so that whatever you create is sure to please and bring fun and joy to those you share them with.
