So the last week of my life has been dealing with the novel coronavirus. Yes, somehow I contracted it despite how careful I have been to avoid it. Luckily, God protected my husband and 2 year old and I was the only one whom was effected by this awful virus that just seems to do whatever it wants when it wants. I joked that it has a mind of it’s own, but it really does!
Most people want to know if I had symptoms. Well, I did. I felt as if it was a really bad cold and totally manageable. Again, I was spared any awful symptoms. I will say, as a food blogger, losing my sense of taste and smell was devastating! There was no enjoyment of food for 4 days and it was killer.
I’m very fortunate the virus didn’t affect me for too long and I’m feeling pretty much normal now. Glad to have that over with!
On the bright side, I lost 7 pounds. It was a great tool in preventing my constant snacking all day long. One day, I just magically got my taste back. I took a sip of coffee, realized I was tasting again, and proceeded to jump up and down in the kitchen. I’m serious. Back to these delicious chocolate confections…
You will need Silicone Half Sphere molds to make these Galaxy Hot Chocolate Bombs. If you’re not feeling super confident in making these, there are literally thousands of tutorials demonstrating how to carefully temper the chocolate and pour it into silicone molds. You can do this!
