THE OCTOBER SURPRISE — We can all appreciate the charm of a bath bomb. Even if baths aren't your cup of tea, watching viral videos of someone's water turning into a galaxy is pretty cool.

It's that same niche as Mentos in a two-liter bottle of Coca-Cola, expanding elephant toothpaste, and watching objects melt after being sliced with a glowing thousand-degree knife. People just like to watch things dissolve, expand or transform into other things.

This trend has its newest and perhaps its best addition yet: hot cocoa bombs. That's right, you read that correctly. This hot chocolate bomb video has transfixed me.

As the video begins, we're introduced to a large chocolate orb with a dark chocolate drizzle sitting in a mug. It is promptly drowned in a sea of hot milk. As the chocolate ball starts to melt, the milk begins to turn golden and brown. The divots in the chocolate orb are clearly visible and, for a second, it's questionable as to whether it's going to break apart. But then, a welcome surprise twist: The orb flips over and splits in half to reveal a hoard of marshmallows.

This video is from HoneyBea's Sweet Spot on Instagram, which is a sweet shop that is, unfortunately, not in Utah. That said, if you want a hot chocolate bomb, there are recipes for do-it yourself options for families looking for fun holiday activities.

Basically, whether you're here to get in on the hype and make your own, or just to rewatch this video a million times and satiate the urge to watch things dissolve, the hot chocolate bomb with an explosion of marshmallows is clearly the sleeper hit of the season we all needed.
