How to Make Caramel Coffee Bomb

STEP ONE

Place 22 oz of chocolate in a glass bowl and microwave for 30 seconds, leaving the remaining 2 oz of chocolate to drizzle later.

STEP TWO

Stir chocolate from outside edges of bowl to the center.

STEP THREE

Microwave chocolate for 15 more seconds and stir again.

STEP FOUR

Take temperature and be sure not to exceed 90°F.

Repeat steps 2-4 until chocolate pieces are mostly melted.

STEP SIX

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.

STEP NINE

Chill for 10 minutes.

STEP TEN

Carefully push chocolate half-spheres out of the molds.

STEP ELEVEN

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.

STEP TWELVE

Warm a skillet on lowest heat.

STEP THIRTEEN

One at a time, hold the rim of an empty half sphere to the warmed pan until lightly melted.

STEP FOURTEEN

Immediately press the tops of one of the caramel-filled half spheres, let set.

Repeat until all bombs are whole.

STEP SIXTEEN

Melt remaining 2 ounces of chocolate and drizzle over bombs.

STEP SEVENTEEN

Immediately sprinkle crushed caramel candy at the top of each bombs. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week.

Did You Know?

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.​
