Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans

No Photo


  • 1 cup roasted coffee beans
  • 4 ounces chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional)


  1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler until liquid and smooth. Drop in a handful of beans, and stir them around. Scoop them out with a spoon, and set them out on wax paper. Keep them separate. Continue until all the beans are covered. They will harden overnight, or if you are in a hurry, you can freeze them for about half an hour.
  2. Once hard, they won't stick together and can be stored in any airtight container.

Before chocolate covered beans harden completely, you can roll them in cocoa powder, then let them finish hardening.
