I’ve been putting together some little gifts for the kids to go into their Easter baskets and after the success of our hot chocolate bombs that we made at Christmas and for our snow days I decided to give them some Easter Hot Cocoa Bombs as a gift in their basket this year. This easy DIY recipe for some spring hot chocolate bombs is easy to make and from my try of one tastes delicious as well.

I don’t know how many times we thought spring was around the corner and have woken up on Easter morning to snow on the ground and freezing temperatures. So this year I’ve decided to be prepared and make sure that in our Easter baskets we have some DIY hot cocoa bombs that the kids can have either with our Easter breakfast waffles or later in the day after coming in from the cold.
