Where to Find Hot Cocoa Bombs in West Michigan

Shop Local in Grand Haven, Spring Lake, Muskegon and Surrounding Areas

By Sarah Boucher, Publisher & Editor February 2, 2021

Hot cocoa bombs really are the bomb. They are beautifully crafted confections that magically transform into the perfect cup of hot cocoa right before your eyes as you add hot milk. There's something so satisfying about watching the milk melt the outer chocolate coating and watching the cocoa powder swirl into the milk. You might even have marshmallows or other treats to make your mug of warm deliciousness extra special. 

Wondering where to find these amazing creations I speak of? Never fear, the answer is here!

The Pump House is a modern day soda shop–if the soda shop had artisanal yogurt, gelato, sorbet and custard and a mountain of crazy toppings. Step inside and you'll get enough flavors to make your tongue dance and the kind of atmosphere you'll never want to leave. This is the kind of place where boy meets girl, families celebrate birthdays, neighbors bump into neighbors, and the staff not only knows your name, but also that you love malted milk balls and sprinkles—a ton of sprinkles.
