Chocolate coffee beans

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!

Chocolate Covered Coffee beans

Experiment with flavored chocolates or white chocolate for variety.

Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans Recipe
  • 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
  1. Prep a large cookie sheet with wax paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Pour in a generous handful of coffee beans and stir to coat. Add more coffee beans if needed to utilize all the melted chocolate.
  4. 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.)
  5. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes until hardened.
  6. Serve & enjoy! Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool place.

    I made some for my daughtet and she likes them but said next time to put more chocolate on them. If I double dipped them wouldnt the first chocolate just remelt?

    • Hi Bill,
      Maybe try freezing them and then do the double dip in chocolate. I haven’t tried it but think it will work! Just place the first round on a cookie sheet covered with wax paper in the freezer so the chocolate hardens. Good luck!
