If you’ve ever bought chocolate covered coffee beans you know they are ridiculously priced BUT delicious! It takes a bit of time and is a little tedious, but making your own is cost effective and you still get a delicious treat in the end made all the more yummy by the effort you expended to make them!
Experiment with flavored chocolates or white chocolate for variety.
- Note: I’m not going to give you any measurements because it depends really on how much you want to make.
- Whole Bean Coffee Beans ( I used Starbucks Whole Bean Dark Italian Roast)
- Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers
- Prep a large cookie sheet with wax paper.
- In a microwave safe dish, melt chocolate wafers for 30 seconds, stir. If some of the wafers remain chunky heat in 5 second intervals until chocolate is smooth when stirred.
- Pour in a generous handful of coffee beans and stir to coat. Add more coffee beans if needed to utilize all the melted chocolate.
- Transfer beans individually to wax paper. (I used a toothpick to push off individual beans from a spoonful of chocolate covered beans onto the wax paper. It’s tedious, but it works.)
- Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes until hardened.
- Serve & enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool place.
