“Bombs away” isn’t a standard holiday greeting, but islander Debbie Borque is out to change that. Borque has perfected making cocoa bombs, the sweet treats that have captivated children and adults this year.

“I learned about them a few months ago, and since I like to bake for the holidays, I thought I’d try making some,” Borque said. “I took some photos of my first batch and posted them online, and right away people started ordering them. I had some with Halloween themes, but the Christmas ones really have had a fantastic response.”

This sounds like all kinds of fun.

My grand daughter got one as a gift this week. She brought it over to the house so we could all watch it turn in hot chocolate! It was cool.

Great idea.
