Living in a pandemic is stressful, and I came across the concept of hot chocolate bombs on a particularly stressful day. So I promptly ordered the molds from Amazon and a giant container of hot chocolate and created these as a form of stress relief. They are incredibly fun to use and quite tasty as well.
Would I recommend investing in the equipment for these? That depends on whether you want a cool party trick, if you'd use the molds more than once, whether you plan to make them for gifts, etc. The answer for me was yes to all of these. I can envision a non-COVID world where I need teacher gifts and package these in a mug for all the teachers and aides that make our world go round (whom I desperately miss currently).
I think I need to try a white chocolate version, and my son would appreciate a milk chocolate version. (I used a dark chocolate because that's my jam.)
