These Hot Cocoa Bombs Make Winter Sweeter in the Hudson Valley


Dunk the cocoa-laden, marshmallow-stuffed chocolate balls into warm milk for a cozy cup of sweetness this season.

When frost glistens on tree branches and the sun sets before the workday ends, there’s nothing like sweetening up winter with a creamy mug of cocoa. While the powdered stuff is fine and dandy, there’s something particularly delightful about plunking a hot chocolate bomb into a cup of your choosing and watching as it magically transforms into the perfect sweet treat for the season.

Here’s where you can pick up a hot chocolate bomb around the Hudson Valley. P.S. These would be great stocking stuffers for little ones with a sweet tooth!

The Cakery


The Cakery may be known for its almost-too-perfect-to-eat cupcakes, but don’t sleep on the hot chocolate bombs, either. They come in a four-pack with an artful drizzle and sprinkles on top, and they’re a fun option for festivities with friends and family throughout the winter season. Expect to find a variety of marshmallows and sprinkles packed inside each one.

The Callicoon Pantry


This eco-friendly market is a must-visit for so many things, including its assortment of bulk grains and produce. It also boasts a top-tier selection of sweets, many of which are locally made. Case in point: the Jaguar cocoa bomb comes straight from Troy’s Primo Chocolate. Not only is this bomb plant-based, but it also features rare “jaguar” cacao white chocolate. It’s filled with incredibly melty and indulgent 50-percent drinking chocolate and Dandies vegan mini marshmallows (because you can’t forget the marshmallows). In case you were wondering, this cocoa bomb is completely vegan.

Tree of Chocolate


The Rockland County sweet shop is a holy grail for chocolate lovers, and its winter roster of treats does not disappoint. When it’s time for a cozy cuppa, look no further than the Santa hot cocoa bomb with mini marshmallows. The design is perfect for the season, and the marshmallows that pop up when the outer layer of chocolate dissolves are a sweet surprise for young helpers who may be awaiting their mug of cocoa.

Marshmallows from Hudson Valley Marshmallow Co.


Sure, hot cocoa bombs are often filled with marshmallows as a fun surprise. But is there really such a thing as too many marshmallows? (We thought not.) Hudson Valley Marshmallow Co. is the place to go for artisanal, highly fluffy marshmallows, with flavors ranging from vanilla bean to chocolate chip, strawberry, salted caramel, and French toast. Fair warning: Pick up two bags of these, since they’re bound to go fast at hot cocoa bar parties or winter movie nights.
