Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Shots

Thank you for sharing!

Come on and give it a shot! I’m sure you’ll love this one-of-a-kind and not like any other regular hot cocoa bombs. I’m talking about Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Shots.

Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Shots

Drinking hot cocoa is my thing, especially during those cold seasons. And I’m sooo into hot cocoa bombs. It’s a fun way to make your favorite hot cocoa drink. Besides, they can be combined with many flavors along with creating shapes and decorations. Just like this Unicorn Horn Hot Cocoa Bomb. Isn’t it cute?

What’s with these Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa Shots?

As you can see, they are chocolate in the shape of shot glasses, filled to the brim with my favorite cocoa mix, marshmallows, and caramel. Oh! With some salts, of course. And one thing more… the fillings are not covered.

That’s how easy they can be made. You’ll just fill the chocolate ‘shot glass’ up and there’s no need to cover the fillings.

That silicon mold was awesome. If you don’t have it yet, I have it linked to let you know where I got them. Just making things easier for you.
