New from Handstand Kitchen, the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set (BKS-HCBULT, MSRP $29.99) arrives just in time for holiday gift-giving, capturing the cocoa bomb sensation that got its start on TikTok and became one of the hottest trends for 2020 and 2021.
Part of the new Hot Cocoa Bomb Collection of Handstand Kitchen, the deluxe 18-piece set is one of four unique cocoa bomb sets available to ship October 1 and features an exclusive embossed silicone mold, tools, and recipes that help users design endless hot cocoa bomb creations that are easy to make, fun to enjoy and giftable.
The special silicone mold is reusable and features heart, sprinkles, and drizzle patterns, designed to make four expertly shaped cocoa bombs that are ready to decorate. Each set in the collection features a QR Code on the box that links to exclusive recipes, how-to videos, and cocoa bomb inspiration.
“After 15 years of being in this business, I have never seen such excitement around a collection before. From national retailers to mom and pop stores, this collection has been well received across the board, and our presales are skyrocketing,” said Yvette Garfield, owner and founder of Handstand Kitchen. “The combination of cocoa bombs being both a super-hot trend and a social media phenomenon will make this our strongest collection to date, and I believe these sets will continue to do extremely well into 2022, for Valentine’s Day and beyond.”
The Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set includes a silicone spatula, chocolate scraper, chocolate brush, silicone melting pot with lid and recipes, making it easy to handcraft uniquely flavored hot cocoa bombs in endless flavor combinations. The set has printed bags and stickers for gifting and original recipes like Classic Hot Cocoa Bombs, Dark Chocolate Peppermint Hot Cocoa Bombs, and Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa Bombs.
The collection features four curated sets, one for every cocoa connoisseur. From the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set to the I ♥️ COCOA BOMBS Intro Set, a great fit for kids, to the giftable Cocoa Bomb Mini Set to the basic I ♥️ COCOA BOMBS Silicone Mold (8 cavity), which offers just the silicone mold, all sets include the QR Code link for recipes and inspiration.
Designed for ages six and up, the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set and the entire Hot Cocoa Bomb Collection feature the same premium quality BPA-free cookware and utensils that have long been the standard of Handstand Kitchen’s line of bakeware.
The silicone cocoa bomb mold and silicone melting pot with lid are ovens, freezer, microwave, and top-rack dishwasher safe, and temperature safe from -40°F to 428°F (-40°C to 220°C). The silicone utensils are top-rack dishwasher safe. All other utensils should be hand washed.
The cocoa bomb craze, which started on TikTok, involves spreading melted chocolate into round half-sphere molds to create chocolate shells, and then filling half of the shells with hot cocoa mix (and any desired add-ins, such as mini marshmallows and chocolate chips) and topping the filled shell with the remaining chocolate shell to make a round cocoa bomb. Once the halves are sealed into one round cocoa bomb, they can be drizzled, sprinkled, and decorated. To experience the cocoa bomb effect, place a cocoa bomb in a large mug, pour steaming hot milk over the top, and watch it burst open to reveal the hidden treats inside.
