About the bake

Chocolate Bombs make an excellent little gift for loved ones, if it's Christmas time or not. This recipe includes tempering chocolate and making a caramel. We've included Paul's expert video below to run you through the best way to temper chocolate. The Chocolate Bombs will also require setting in the fridge over night so it's a good recipe to prep the day before. Any left over caramel can be stored in a jar or used as a dip for other recipes.
