    Handstand Kitchen® Unveils New Hot Cocoa Bomb Collection

    New from Handstand Kitchen®, the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set (BKS-HCBULT, MSRP $29.99) arrives just in time for holiday gift giving, capturing the cocoa bomb sensation that got its start on TikTok and became one of the hottest trends for 2020 and 2021.

    Part of Handstand Kitchen’s new Hot Cocoa Bomb Collection, the deluxe 18-piece set is one of four unique cocoa bomb sets available to ship October 1 and features an exclusive embossed silicone mold, tools and recipes that help users design endless hot cocoa bomb creations that are easy to make, fun to enjoy and giftable.

    The special silicone mold is reusable and features heart, sprinkles and drizzle patterns, designed to make four expertly shaped cocoa bombs that are ready to decorate. Each set in the collection features a QR Code on the box that links to exclusive recipes, how-to videos and cocoa bomb inspiration.

    “After 15 years of being in this business, I have never seen such excitement around a collection before. From national retailers to mom and pop stores, this collection has been well received across the board, and our presales are skyrocketing,” said Yvette Garfield, owner and founder of Handstand Kitchen. “The combination of cocoa bombs being both a super-hot trend and a social media phenomenon will make this our strongest collection to date, and I believe these sets will continue to do extremely well into 2022, for Valentine’s Day and beyond.”

    The Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set includes a silicone spatula, chocolate scraper, chocolate brush, silicone melting pot with lid and recipes, making it easy to handcraft uniquely flavored hot cocoa bombs in endless flavor combinations. The set has printed bags and stickers for gifting and original recipes like Classic Hot Cocoa Bombs, Dark Chocolate Peppermint Hot Cocoa Bombs and Pumpkin Spice Hot Cocoa Bombs.

    The collection features four curated sets, one for every cocoa connoisseur. From the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set to the I ♥️ COCOA BOMBS Intro Set, a great fit for kids, to the giftable Cocoa Bomb Mini Set to the basic I ♥️ COCOA BOMBS Silicone Mold (8 cavity), which offers just the silicone mold, all sets include the QR Code link for recipes and inspiration.

    Designed for ages six and up, the Ultimate Hot Cocoa Bomb Set and the entire Hot Cocoa Bomb Collection feature the same premium quality BPA free cookware and utensils that have long been the standard of Handstand Kitchen’s line of bakeware.

    The silicone cocoa bomb mold and silicone melting pot with lid are oven, freezer, microwave, and top rack dishwasher safe, and temperature safe from -40°F to 428°F (-40°C to 220°C). The silicone utensils are top rack dishwasher safe. All other utensils should be hand washed.

    The cocoa bomb craze, which started on TikTok, involves spreading melted chocolate into round half sphere molds to create chocolate shells, and then filling half of the shells with hot cocoa mix (and any desired add-ins, such as mini marshmallows and chocolate chips) and topping the filled shell with the remaining chocolate shell to make a round cocoa bomb. Once the halves are sealed into one round cocoa bomb, it can be drizzled, sprinkled and decorated. To experience the cocoa bomb effect, place a cocoa bomb in a large mug, pour steaming hot milk over the top and watch it burst open to reveal the hidden treats inside.

    Handstand Kitchen® is a woman owned and run business that has been inspiring young creators since 2007. While the products have evolved from a single cookbook into complete cooking sets for kids and adults and innovative crafting kits, too, the company mission remains the same: to bring joy through creating together. Find hot cocoa bombs and the entire Handstand Kitchen collection at https://handstandkitchen.com

    Make A Wish and Carry It with You

    Have you ever made a wish? I believe everyone did when you were still a little kid. But where did our wishes go as we are growing up? We haven’t made a wish for a long time, and sadly we almost forgot all the wishes we ever made! But I still can remember the beautiful moments when I made a wish at small ages – secretly writing down on my notebook, or under my study desk. There is a brand I want to introduce to you all that you can carry the wishes with you, so that you will never lost it and forget it. It is Wishbeads.

    How Wishbeads work?

    • Write it.

    Visualize your greatest wish coming true. See it clearly in your mind’s eye. Write down your wish using the kit that is provided along with your jewelry.

    • Wear it.

    Roll up the paper. Tuck it inside your beautiful gemstone jewelry. Wear your wish every day as a powerful visual reminder of the intention you’ve set.

    • Witness.

    Each day, whenever you see your jewelry, you’ll be reminded to take action, to live purposefully toward realizing your wish. Witness the power of you!

    Fire Recycled Glass Bracelet

    This collection features African recycled glass beads handmade by members of the Krobo Tribe in Ghana, Africa. Using centuries-old techniques, they form each bead by compressing the glass into a dry grain, heating the grain, and pouring into porcelain molds, before adding the stem of the cassava leaf to form the hole. The final heating burns the stem away and fuses the glass together. Vibrant colors and irregular shapes of each bead create one-of-a-kind pieces.

    Write down your deepest wish, tuck it inside your Wishbeads bracelet, and wear it as a daily reminder to take action.

    • Features solid brass cylinder and screw cap
    • Includes 5 wishpapers
    • Hand strung beads and clasp
    • Bracelet lengths vary between 18.5cm-19cm
