Frequently Asked Questions on Hot Chocolate Bombs

While you can technically use water instead of milk to melt the hot cocoa bombs, we do not recommend this as it may result in a less rich and flavorful hot chocolate. If you prefer a more diluted hot chocolate, however, feel free to experiment with different liquids and adjust the amount of bomb used accordingly.
