Dunkin's New Hot Cocoa Bombs Make The Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Earlier in the year, people started to notice that Dunkin' seemed to have a new product up its sleeve. Back in June, "junk food news" Instagram account @candyhunting spotted signature Dunkin' Hot Chocolate and Mint Chocolate Cocoa Bombs during a sweets and snacks conference, but the chain made no comment about the potential product — leaving many consumers wondering when Dunkin' planned to break out the new item, per Taste of Home. Now, the wait has finally come to an end.

According to Dunkin', the coffee-and-donuts chain teamed up with Frankford Candy to create Dunkin' Hot Chocolate Bombs and Dunkin' Mint Hot Chocolate Bombs, just in time for the holiday season. The bomb products hit shelves this month, but are only available for a limited time. Once we make it to the new year, there's no guarantee that Dunkin' will keep the product around, so be sure to get yours fast. Fortunately, anyone with a sweet tooth can pick up these products online or at brick-and-mortar locations across the country. 

Here's how to use the Dunkin' hot cocoa bombs in your hot chocolate — and here's exactly where you can buy them.

Dunkin' flavors for the holidays

For everyone dying to try a Dunkin' hot cocoa bomb, here's everything you need to know. According to the franchise's press release, the bombs are available in two flavors: the chocolate bomb comes coated in Belgian chocolate, while the mint chocolate version features a mint chocolate exterior. Both also come stuffed with marshmallows, making for a one-of-a-kind treat that can provide the perfect holiday pick-me-up. And anyone who gets their hands on these hot cocoa bombs simply has to drop the candy into a mug and pour six ounces of hot milk over it to create the perfect mug of hot chocolate.

Plus, anyone who wants to pick up a hot cocoa bomb or three can grab individual servings for about $3.99 at Big Lots, H-E-B, Ross, and Christmas Tree Shops and That!, in addition to Amazon and Frankford Candy's website. If you try to score the item online, you also have the additional option of a 12-count multipack for $55. When you want to kick back with a hot mug of hot chocolate but want something a bit more decadent than the run-of-the-mill powders you normally see at the grocery store, these hot cocoa bombs might just have what it takes to get you feeling warm inside and provides a great stocking stuffer this holiday season.
