Though we’re experiencing a last blast of warm weather through much of the country this week, the nights have already been telling us we’re on the precipice of winter.

And for Dunkin’ fans that can only mean one thing -- Hot Chocolate Bombs!

That’s right, the quietest season of the year brings the loudest (taste-wise) chocolate explosion imaginable.

Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bombs are chocolate balls based off fave Dunkin’ Donuts drinks that can be store-bought at your local candy aisle, then turned into delicious hot drinks.

They were quite the hit when Dunkin’ unleashed them last year, but in case you missed it, allow us to explain.

The Dunkin’ Hot Chocolate Bomb features a Belgian milk chocolate exterior, while the Dunkin’ Mint Hot Chocolate Bomb features a mint-flavored Belgian milk chocolate exterior. And inside? Mini marshmallows.

Then you take these little marvels, drop them into your favorite mug, pour six ounces of hot milk over it, and watch the magic as it turns your humble milk into a scrumptious, creamy holiday drink.

It might take a little stirring, but you get the idea.

“Dunkin’ hot chocolate is on everyone’s holiday wish list,” said Brian Gilbert, vice president of retail business development at Dunkin,’ in a press release. “And this collaboration with Frankford Candy gives our fans a whole new way to celebrate. These hot chocolate bombs are the perfect way to keep warm and have fun with friends and family this holiday season.”

If this sounds good to you -- and really, who wouldn’t this sound good to? -- grab them soon. They’re available nationwide, but only for a limited time at select retailers -- Big Lots, H-E-B, Ross Dress For Less, and Christmas Tree Shops and That! -- and online at Dunkin’, Frankford Candy, and Amazon.

If you just can’t get enough, a 12-count multi-pack is available for purchase online at Amazon and FrankfordCandy.com for a suggested retail price of $55.

That should be enough Bombs to quiet the kids for a while while you all cozy up to watch some holiday movies.
