Coffee Bomb Recipe

Coffee bombs became an explosive hit in 2022. If you spent time in the kitchen experimenting with new things during the pandemic, you must have an idea about them. 

For the uninitiated, coffee bombs are chocolate spheres filled with a special filling to make your caffeine cuppa a lot more delicious.

So, what are you going to make? Coffee bombs are made of hollow dark chocolate spheres. These are filled with caramel sauce and hard caramel candies.

Steps To Make Coffee Bomb

1. Prepare Chocolate Shells

To prepare the chocolate shells, you will need to place the dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl.

Melt the chocolate in the microwave at medium heat for 30 seconds, take it out, and stir it. Microwave the chocolate in 15-second increments until it is completely melted.

Take a half-sphere silicone mold. With the help of a pastry brush, spread a thin layer of melted chocolate inside the mold.

Refrigerate the silicone mold tray for a few minutes until the chocolate hardens. Brush another layer of chocolate on top and refrigerate the tray again. 

Double layers of chocolate will ensure they don’t break while demolding. Carefully remove the hardened chocolate shells from the mold. This recipe will give you 24 half-sphere silicone molds.  

2. Make Coffee Bombs

Take 12 chocolate shells and fill them with caramel sauce and crushed caramel candy. Here you can also add mini chocolate chips or butterscotch chips.

Take a microwave-safe plate and heat it in the microwave. Take the empty chocolate shells one piece at a time and place the rim side down on the hot plate. This will help the chocolate rim melt slightly. 

Stick the melted rim on top of one filled chocolate shell by aligning the rims carefully. This will form the coffee bomb. Press the top chocolate shell gently so that it seals properly. 

Repeat this process with the rest of the chocolate shells. Allow the rims to harden for a few minutes. You can also place the coffee bombs in the refrigerator to harden.

Your coffee bombs are ready to be floated in a hot cup of coffee or milk.

Tips For Making Coffee Bombs

Here are a few tips listed to make the best coffee bombs.

  1. You should put on latex gloves while handling chocolate shells. This will prevent the shells from melting in your hands or leaving fingerprint impressions. Moreover, they will also prevent the shells from melting from the natural warmth of hands.
  2. Make sure to double-coat the chocolate shells in the molds. This will ensure they don’t break easily while de-molding.
  3. While melting the chocolate, make sure not to overcook it. Too much heat exposure results in grainy chocolate.
  4. For making chocolate shells, use dark chocolate instead of candy melts. That’s because they are waxy in nature and don’t contain pure chocolate.

Flavor Variations

Coffee bombs are an incredible flavor enhancer for coffee or plain milk. While the recipe mentioned in this article turns out to be great in taste, you can also try some other flavor variations.

  • Powdered Coffee – If you plan to add coffee bombs to plain milk, you can fill the chocolate shells with powdered coffee. Powdered coffee comes in many flavors, like peppermint, caramel, hazelnut, and more. You can choose the flavor that appeals to you the best.
  • Mini Marshmallows – Marshmallows are a great addition to hot beverages. You can fill the chocolate shells with mini marshmallows. You can also use a combination of mini marshmallows with powdered coffee.
  • Syrups – Instead of caramel, you can also fill the chocolate shells with hazelnut or mocha syrups.
  • Hard Candies – If you wish to add nice crunchy bits of candies to your hot beverage, you can also add crushed candy cane, hard coffee candies, or any other flavor of your choice.

How to Store Leftover Coffee Bombs?

To store coffee bombs, place them in small cupcake liners. You can then store them in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 8 weeks.

If you live in a warm climate, coffee bombs should be stored in the refrigerator to prevent them from melting.

You can also freeze coffee bombs for two months.
