WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- 24 oz dark chocolate, chopped (65% cocoa or higher dark chocolate recommended)
- 12 oz caramel sauce
- 6 hard caramel candies, crushed
- Instant-read thermometer
- 1¾-inch silicone half sphere chocolate molds
- 1-inch pastry brush
How to Make Caramel Coffee Bomb
Place 22 oz of chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, leaving the remaining 2 oz of chocolate to drizzle later.
Stir chocolate from outside edges of bowl to the center.
Microwave chocolate for 15 more seconds and stir again.
Take temperature and be sure not to exceed 90°F.
Repeat steps 2-4 until chocolate pieces are mostly melted.
Keep stirring, using the residual heat of the bowl to finish.
Using a pastry brush, spread a layer of chocolate inside each mold.
Chill for a few minutes, then add a second layer of chocolate to mold, being sure to build up the rim.
Chill for 10 minutes.
Carefully push chocolate half-spheres out of the molds.
Fill 12 of the half-spheres with 1 oz of caramel each.
For different flavors, try adding chocolate chips, caramel candy pieces, or butterscotch chips on the interior of the bombs. For a creamier coffee bomb, try adding a splash of your favorite liquid creamer, just be sure to enjoy immediately.
Warm a skillet on lowest heat.
One at a time, hold the rim of an empty half sphere to the warmed pan until lightly melted.
Immediately press the tops of one of the caramel-filled half spheres, let set.
Repeat until all bombs are whole.
Melt remaining 2 ounces of chocolate and drizzle over bombs.
Immediately sprinkle crushed caramel candy at the top of each bombs. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week.

While we made this recipe with our Caramel Flavored Coffee, the Caramel Coffee Bomb can be enjoyed with any Starbucks roast. For example, try dropping your bomb into a mug of Starbucks Espresso Roast for a slightly different take on this recipe that's just as deliciously caramelly.
