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.

Melt chocolate. Add coffee beans.

Stir coffee beans into chocolate until coated.

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

Place beans on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes. Viola!

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

So  pretty!

Place in fridge for half an hour.

Is there a single coffee lover that could resist this?
