Chocolate Bombs Are Trending In Malaysia, Just In Time For Valentine’s Day 2021
Built for Instagram, chocolate bombs are candy confections that melt when stirred in hot milk, resulting in cosy mugs of hot chocolate. These spherical shells shaped out of chocolate are essentially meltable vessels containing cocoa powder, mini marshmallows and other ingredients. Anyone looking for something other than the classic box of bonbons might consider these atypical chocolate treats with an interactive aspect. Find out who's selling them in the Klang Valley.
