DIY Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans

If you are a java fiend like me, you’ll love the idea of making your own chocolate covered coffee beans! Perfect for a coffee-themed wedding! Give them as favors, or serve them up with gourmet coffee at your coffee bar.

You can experiment with different varieties of coffee beans. I used Starbucks French Roast Dark beans and Zavida Hazelnut Vanilla; if you prefer something less robust, go with milder beans.


1 cup of Whole Coffee Beans

12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pour your chocolate chips into a double boiler.

Remove each bean with a fork.  A bit tedious, but worth the hassle.

If you want to take a less tedious route, create coffee bean clusters by placing the melted mixture into paper candy cups.
