Where to Find All the Hot Cocoa Bombs in Hoboken + Jersey City

Written by:

The hot cocoa bomb craze is real, and there are no signs of slowing down. Hot cocoa bombs — {or hot chocolate bombs, interchangeable} are delicious balls of hardened chocolate that have hot cocoa inside. Pop one in a cup, pour hot milk or water over it to melt the shell, and voila! You’ll find an explosion of hot cocoa and marshmallows to mix through your mug. Perfect for the winter months — or any months, really, hot cocoa bombs are naturally taking the dessert world by storm. Many are trying to make this delicacy at home, but with not much luck. To help you out, we’ve rounded up places locally in Hoboken + Jersey City that sell hot cocoa bombs — the only thing you’ll need is milk!

Black Rail Coffee’s hot cocoa bombs appear now and again and complement the array of incredible sandwiches it has for breakfast and lunch. Pro-tip that has nothing to do with hot chocolate: order the ‘Healthier’ sandwich, a combo of turkey slices, spinach, carrots, avocado, and balsamic vinaigrette. A hot cocoa bomb will wash it down nicely.
