How to Make Hot Cocoa Bombs and End the Year with a Bang

What is a cocoa bomb?  Copied from a NYT article, “You’re not sure when the explosion will happen,” Ms. Omens said of the hot chocolate deluge. “You wait in anticipation. And then, when it does, there’s joy. Like fireworks”, she said, “the hot chocolate bomb offers a double helping of excitement: the crescendo to the main event and then, finally, the sweet, sweet release that we all have been craving.”

Come in person and watch Lori Waiser, an extraordinarily creative entrepreneur, as she demonstrates how to make these confections at our December 14thmeeting at the Bernards Township Library.  If you wish to make the cocoa bombs along with her, the program will be presented simultaneously via Zoom.

Lori has appeared on TV, has been written up in the NY Times, has owned and operated several businesses and is the mother of four children.  This dynamic woman has made hundreds of hot cocoa bombs for her corporate clients and is looking forward to sharing her techniques with you.  You can learn more about Lori by visiting her website at https://www.lorslittlebakeshop.net.


If you plan to watch via Zoom and create hot chocolate bombs along with Lori, you will need the following items:  A 1” brush, round silicone mold, and candy melts.  The following is what Lori uses.
