Mocha Bombs are a fun and delicious way to enjoy a mocha made with instant espresso, hot cocoa powder and mini chocolate chips nestled into a sphere of dark chocolate that bursts open and melts when warm milk is poured over top.


  • 10 ounces dark chocolate melting wafers
  • 6 teaspoons instant espresso
  • 6 Tablespoons hot cocoa powder (2 packets)
  • 6 Tablespoons mini chocolate chips
  • vanilla candy coating
  • whipped cream


  1. Melt the Chocolate Wafers in 30 second intervals in microwave, stirring between until completely melted. I like to melt chocolate in a mug.
  2. Pour the melted chocolate in even portions into each sphere mold.
  3. Use the back of a spoon to manipulated the melted chocolate up the sides.
  4. Place the molds in the freezer for 20 minutes to set up before continuing to next step.
  5. Carefully release the chocolate from each mold leaving you with 12 half spheres.
  6. Set up a working station with your spheres, cocoa mix, espresso, mini chocolate chips and a hot plate. For your hot plate, microwave a ceramic plate for a minute or until it almost too hot to touch. Be careful!
  7. Work quickly to assemble each mold into a nice round sphere with all the delicious goodies inside.
    1. Place a half sphere onto the hot plate to even out the edge.
    2. Add 1 Tablespoon cocoa mix, 1 teaspoon instant espresso and 1 Tablespoon mini chocolate chips inside the half sphere.
    3. Grab another half sphere and place it on the hot plate until it is even and slightly melty. Put the two half spheres together.
    4. Repeat until all 6 spheres are complete.
  8. Finish off each sphere with a little decoration. Melt down some vanilla candy melts and drizzle over each sphere.
  9. To serve, place Mocha Bomb into a mug, pour 8 ounces hot milk over top. Stir well. Add whipped cream on top.
