- Microwave-Safe Bowl. You will melt your chocolate in the microwave, so you need to have a microwave-safe bowl to use.
- Spoon. You will use the spoon to mix your chocolate and make sure it is fully melted. It does not matter if you want to use a metal or wooden spoon.
- 6 Cavity Mold. The mold is a must-have for preparing these Cafe Mocha Bombs. If you do not have it, you can purchase one from Amazon.com or most local craft stores.
- Small Piping Bags. The piping bags will come in handy when you need to connect both sides of the bombs. If you do not have piping bags, you can use Ziploc baggies!
- Ceramic Plates. You need one plate that you can keep cold and one that you can keep warm.
If you have the equipment mentioned above and a pair of scissors, you are ready to prepare the Cafe Mocha Bombs.
Which Chocolates Work Best With These Treats?

You may want to choose from white chocolate, dark chocolate, and even milk chocolate to customize the taste of your Cafe Mocha Bombs.
Always make sure to choose chocolates that will melt well. You can choose from many brands of melting chocolates, including Wilton, Ghirardelli, Sweet Tooth Fairy, and even Baker’s Corner.
Can You Prepare Different Variations of the Cafe Mocha Bombs?
You can prepare all the different types of Cafe Mocha Bombs. The best way to create different variations is to switch up the kind of chocolate and powdered coffee creamer you will use.
For example, you can find powdered coffee creamer in many other flavors, such as hazelnut, vanilla caramel, creamy chocolate, and traditional caramel.
Along with using different types of powdered coffee creamers, you can use additional chocolate chips, such as white chocolate, mint chocolate, and even dark chocolate.
What to Know When Preparing Your Cafe Mocha Bombs
Preparing the Cafe Mocha Bombs is both fun and simple, but there are some helpful tips to know before you even get started.
- If you freeze a plate, you can prevent your cocoa bombs from melting when you remove them from the mold.
- You want them to keep their shape so that you can fill them with the powdered coffee creamer.
- Make sure to avoid overheating your chocolate. If you overheat it, the chocolate will burn, and you will need to start all over again.
- It is best to heat the chocolate for a few seconds at a time.
- You can always add extra seconds if you need to melt the chocolate down a bit further. Besides melting the chocolate correctly, do apply enough of the melted chocolate to the rims of each mold to get them to stick perfectly together.
- If you do not add enough chocolate to each edge, they will not stick and will start to fall apart.
Now that you know what you will need and how to get started, you can prepare flavorful Cafe Mocha Bombs to add to your cup of coffee.
