Making chocolate covered espresso beans

You won’t get single, glossy beans, but the taste is there!

  1. Put dark roast coffee beans on a waxpaper-covered baking sheet.
  2. Melt some chocolate by puting a container with the chocolate in a pan of boiling water, stir the chocolate when it is getting hot. Some experimentation regarding what chocolate to use is in place. I used chocolate chips of from Girardelli. One should probably aim for dark and not too sweet chocolate.
  3. Pour the chocolate over the beans and smear it so that each bean is covered – you should have a single layer of covered beans not too far apart.
  4. When the beans have cooled off a little bit, put the sheet in the fridge/freezer.
  5. When solid, break off a piece and enjoy.
  6. Note: You can also use very finely ground coffee for this.

    Another recipe

    A way to get individual chocolate covered coffee beans is to use candy molds.
    Melt some chocolate, and pour a little into each mold. Place individual beans into each mold, then cover with chocolate. Place in freezer until hard.
    Flex the molds to pop the chocolate-beans out. Save the molds for later.

    An alternative is to mix a little bit of peanut butter with chocolate. Mini-Reese cups with a bit more pizzazz.
