Making Chocolate-Covered Coffee Beans
Who doesn’t love coffee or chocolate? By combining the two together, you can create a unique and tasty treat that combines both flavors! Here’s how to make chocolate-covered coffee beans:
- 1 cup of any type of dried coffee beans
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- Optional: A few tablespoons of chopped nuts, toasted coconut flakes, cocoa powder, or sea salt
- Pour the dried coffee beans onto a plate. Spread them out so that they are all in an even layer.
- Melt the chocolate chips. Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 30 seconds at a time and stir in between each interval until completely melted.
- Dip the coffee beans in the melted chocolate chips. Use a spoon to make sure each bean is coated in an even layer of chocolate.
- Sprinkle with your favorite toppings. If you’d like, you can sprinkle a few tablespoons of chopped nuts, toasted coconut flakes, cocoa powder, or sea salt on the chocolate-coated beans.
- Let the chocolate-covered beans cool and set. Transfer the beans to the plate you used to spread out the coffee beans. Place the plate in the refrigerator for 5–10 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened.
Once the chocolate has hardened, your chocolate-covered coffee beans are ready to enjoy. They make a great snack or a unique addition to any dessert. Enjoy!
