Chocolate is an integral part of Christmas for lots of people, but for some, it’s a way of life.

If you have a true chocolate-lover in your life then you’ll know just how fussy they can be about the type of confectionary they consume.

Which means that, though it might seem like an easy task to buy a gift for them, in actual fact, it’s quite difficult to find something unique enough – and tasty enough – to delight them.

But we’ve managed to find something that will melt (quite literally) the hearts of chocolate-lovers out there: Hot Chocolate Bombes Crackers.

These handmade melting hot choccie bombes by Kent-based brand, Cocoba, are one of Not On The High Street’s best-selling Christmas gift right now, and we can see why.

You simply place the hot chocolate bombe, which is made of 100% Belgian milk chocolate, into your favourite mug, slowly pour over steaming milk and watch with delight as the chocolate melts to uncover mini marshmallows hiding within.

Not only will the bombes warm the recipient up after a brisk Christmas Day walk, they’ll also last for Boxing Day and - if they’re savvy with their sharing - a third day after that.
