Chocolate PS4 Controllers

Now you can have your video games and eat the controllers too, with these sweet chocolate treats.


  • Cake Batter:
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 100 grams white chocolate, melted
  • 65 grams whipping cream, hot
  • Black, green, purple, red and blue candy melts, melted


  1. 1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve the instant coffee in the hot water. Then add the cocoa powder and vanilla, whisk together, then pour into the dry mixture. Add the vegetable oil, chocolate chips and vinegar, and mix until everything is well combined.
  2. 2. Divide between a large muffin tin and bake at 375F for 15 minutes. Cool completely.
  3. 3. Weigh out 375 grams of cupcakes (about 6 cupcakes) and crumble into a fine crumb. In a separate bowl, combine the white chocolate and whipping cream, then pour onto the cake crumbs and mix until well combined. The mixture should hold its shape when you mold it.
  4. 4. Spread some melted black candy melts onto the walls of a PS4 controller chocolate mold. Allow the candy melts to harden at room temperature. Fill the mold with the cake mixture, making sure to create a flat surface. Pour extra black candy melts on top and seal the cake inside the candy melts. Smooth the surface, then place the mold in the refrigerator until the candy melts have hardened.
  5. 5. Gently unmold the controller from the mold. Use toothpicks to draw the details on the controller with the green, purple, red and blue candy melts. Allow the details to harden and enjoy!
  6. 6. Note: because of how thin the controllers are, they will become fragile and soften slightly when left at room temperature. We recommend storing them in the fridge until they're ready to be enjoyed.
