What is a Fat Bomb?

Fat bombs are low carb, keto friendly desserts, which don’t even require baking! They are usually held together by refrigerating or even by freezing sometimes. They are typically made with ingredients which are high in fat such as nut butters, coconut oil, cream cheese or avocado. Since fat bombs, as the name suggests are higher in fat, they make you feel more satisfied than other treats.

What is Mexican Hot Chocolate?

Mexican hot chocolate is less refined and less sweet than regular hot chocolate. It is an unsweetened drink which was used for rituals and medicinal purposes in older times.

Flavors such as cinnamon and chili or cayenne powder are typically added to it to give it a slight kick and to add even more flavor.

How To Store Fat Bombs

These fat bombs should be stored in an air-tight container and placed either in the freezer or refrigerator so that they don’t spoil. It also helps them to keep their shape. They will still taste great within the next couple of days!
