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.
