Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans Recipe
Gourmet Tip: Use good quality chocolate, such as you will find at Chocolate.com – The World’s Largest Chocolate Marketplace when coating your coffee beans.
1 cup of coffee beans
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips OR equivalent in chocolate chunks
3 tbsp cocoa powder (optional)
Melt chocolate on the top of a double boiler. For best results, use a good quality boiler like this Kinetic Classicor Stainless-Steel 2-Quart, 3-Piece Double Boiler. This item is well suited for melting chocolate. The bottom ensures even heating, and the tempered glass lid is vented to let steam escape.
Melt the chocolate on the top of your double boiler.
Place 1/3 of the coffee beans in the melted chocolate. Stir around until coated. Remove your coated coffee beans from the chocolate and place them on wax paper. Do not allow them to touch each other. Continue coating your coffee beans until all are finished.
If desired, roll your chocolate-covered coffee beans in cocoa powder before they harden.
Let your chocolate-covered beans harden overnight. If you are in a hurry, put them in the freezer for half an hour.
Store in an airtight container.
