DIY Hot Chocolate Bombs with Kinder Eggs

Welcome to Blogmas Post Number 7!

You can read all about my take on Blogmas this year here & read all the posts to date here

Nothing beats the coziest cup of hot cocoa during the cold, wintery Christmas season. To up your hot chocolate game, you have to try out the ever so popular Hot Chocolate Bombs! If you are like me and very interested in this, then you would know they are almost impossible to find and even if you want to DIY the sphere wonder, you can barely find the sphere molds to begin with!

I have a solution for you! Do it Yourself Kinder Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs!

They are very quick and easy to make, and you can even get your kids involved (or enjoy a cup to yourself!) See below for the ingredients, how to make, and enjoy a hug in a mug! Warning – Once you make these, you will be addicted and want to come up with your own versions and concoctions.

Ingredients:

How To Make Your Kinder Egg Hot Chocolate Bomb

  • Cut open or pull apart carefully the kinder egg and remove toy
  • Add a tablespoon of hot chocolate mix
  • Add marshamallows (and crushed candy canes)
  • Use frying pan on low heat to melt the kinder egg halves back together
  • * Tip: Place in freezer to harden for 5 – 10 minutes
  • Add hot milk to mug
  • Place hot chocolate bomb in mug
  • Pour steaming milk over hot chocolate bomb
  • Watch the bomb explode, stir and enjoy!

Now, if you have seen the videos of the hot chocolate sphere bombs, they tend to spin and really explode. The type of chocolate Kinder Eggs are made from tend to melt differently so if you place in the freezer to harden it (especially after handling) then it should help get that spin/ explosion a little more but is not perfect!

I hope you enjoy the DIY Kinder Egg Hot Chocolate Bombs! They are definitely a lot quicker and easier to make than the regular Hot Chocolate Bombs and the kids can easily get involved too! You can wrap these up, and have them ready to go for Christmas morning. Don’t forget to give them the toy from the egg! Have you tried a hot chocolate bomb or have made one yourself?

Stay warm and cozy! (I apologize to all my neighbours who are unable to have the amazing Kinder Eggs in their country!)

Summer BBQ: Grilled Cedar Plank Salmon

Nothing screams Summer quite better than a good BBQ. Whether you are the host bringing the most or if you are attending a (safe) social gathering, a few blogging friends and I are sharing our go to recipes for you too knock it out of the park (or backyard that is!). I will be sharing my go to favourite BBQ dish to host at any gathering, and at the end, I will link my friends pages so you can see what amazing, mouth-watering dishes they have come up with for you!

For me, one of the best smells in the world is a cedar plank grilling on the BBQ. If you have not smelt that, just wait till you eat what we grill on it.

It sounds fancier and more complicated than it is, but trust me, it takes less than a half hour from start to finish (as long as you have soaked the cedar planks prior to prep and cook time), and everyone will be saying it is better than restaurant salmon (I may have gotten that a few times).

Let’s get right into it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 – 1 ½ lbs of Salmon
  • 2 Cedar Planks (typically the sizing can vary on cedar planks but I slice my salmon in half and it fit on two boards I purchased from Superstore. You can also find a package of planks here)
  • 1 Lemon (cut into slices)
  • Seasoning (below)

Seasoning

  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp parsley

Directions:

** Soak cedar planks according to instructions.

All planks soaking time varies based on size and thickness. (Typically and where from 2-4 hours)** 

  • Turn grill on to medium-high
  • Mix all seasoning into a bowl
  • Take sliced lemons and place on cedar plank (I use about three per plank)
  • Season salmon on all sides, and press seasoning into salmon to really stick, and place on top of planks (on top of lemons)
  • Place planks directly on grill approximately 15 minutes (ensure internal temperature reaches 135 degrees)
  • Take off the grill and enjoy!

See! I told you it was easy. As I mentioned, the only thing that takes the most time is soaking the planks. Grilling with a dry plank won’t give as much flavor to the food you’re cooking, since much of the flavor comes from the water evaporating out of the plank as it’s exposed to the heat of your grill. Also, you definitely don’t want to put a dry piece of wood on a hot, burning grill as you are risking a fire.

I hope you found some Summer grilling inspiration for your next BBQ. If you are going to a gathering, you can cook this ahead of time and add the salmon to a garden salad. A smoky cedar flavored salmon on a bed of greens is absolutely delicious.

If you decide to give this a try, tag me and I would love to re-share it to my stories on Instagram! Now don’t forget to check out my friend’s posts on their blog and their Instagram below for more amazing BBQ dish ideas!
