The Hot Chocolate Craze That Is The Bomb

Restaurants  / 

The weather outside may be frightful, but what’s in your mug can be oh so delightful. Hot chocolate is the winter treat that warms our soul, but now, it comes with a special surprise inside that brings an explosion of joy. That’s right, it’s the hot chocolate bomb that everyone in Bergen County is raving (and craving) about. Each ball of chocolate, or other custom flavor, is filled with ingredients such as marshmallows, sprinkles, graham crackers and other treats that come alive when poured over with hot milk. Some of our fave dessert spots around Bergen County are wrapping up hot chocolate bombs in unique flavors this winter, which are truly the BOMB dessert option.


Kara Kakes The cake and cupcake shop’s hot chocolate bombs are super popular for good reason.  With unique flavors including gingerbread, strawberry milkshake, chocolate overload and funfetti, these bombs sell out quickly and are first come first served, so get ‘em while they’re hot (or cold)!
