OMG. I’ve been dreaming about this for weeks. Seriously. The beautifully made- hollow, chocolate ball; filled with hot cocoa and marshmallows, sitting in the bottom of my favorite mug just waiting….

Here comes the hot, steamy milk rushing over the soon-to-be melting sphere. 

Wait for it. Wait for it...


Goodness explosion. Everywhere. 

If you have no idea what I am talking about, you are either going to love me or hate me for telling you about this latest trend.
