LUTHERVILLE, Md. — A Baltimore County mother and son are selling hot cocoa bombs to help raise money for The Maryland Food Bank.

Jacob Cohen, 8, of Lutherville thought of the idea to help others during the pandemic. His mother, Melissa, helped and posted the sweet treats on the Mobtown Mommies Facebook page. They started making the cocoa bombs before Christmas and have since raised several hundred dollars to help others during the pandemic. Jacob hopes to his goal of $1,000 in donations.

The Cohen's cocoa bombs are sold in a four pack for $20 or can be purchased individually. To order, please email
