DIY: Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans

DIY: Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans | Step-by-step instructions.

I was on a special 1-week diet until a few days ago, and all I could think about was coffee. And chocolate. And chocolate covered coffee beans. When I completed my week, I decided that celebration was in order! Here's how I did it:

Because I like flavor with a punch, I decided to use our Sexual Chocolate Whole Bean Coffee, and I wasn't disappointed! Wow. The Kahlua paired so well with the rich semi-sweet chocolate I used. To make it yourself, you'll need:

 


 

The Instructions:

Kahlua Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans

In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips over medium-low heat. This ensures that the chocolate won't separate or get a white film over it, when it cools.

Now I tried 2 methods to covering the coffee beans, and I'll share what I liked about each...

Method 1:

Add the coffee beans to the melted chocolate.

Stir well, coating all sides of the coffee beans.

Remove beans carefully with a fork and place on a parchment lined baking sheet

Refrigerate for 30 min, and they'll be ready to eat!

Note: This method gives a homemade/rustic look, and you can't help but want to eat lots. I liked it for it's consistency in the amount of chocolate each bean gets. However I felt like it got tedious searching for the remaining coffee beans the more I pulled out.

 


 

Method 2:

Pour melted chocolate into pastry bag (I made one out of parchment paper), and pipe chocolate onto parchment-lined baking sheet, about the size of a coffee bean.

Place bean over piped chocolate.

Note: You end up with a more rounded look with this method. I wondered if this was going to feel tedious, but it wasn't bad at all, once I got into it. You definitely get more chocolate this way! Mmmm.
