I like my coffee! and if I am going to eat chocolate, its got to be dark chocolate.
Several years ago I bought some chocolate covered coffee beans from a candy vendor that stopped in to my office. These things were awesome! I chowed that bag down in a few days. Well shortly after that I left that job and was not able to track down that candy vendor.
So after getting a bag of some Eight O'Clock Bokar Coffee Beans, I decided to try and make my own. So I did! Well they didn't look as pretty as the one's I got from the candy vendor, but they tasted even better!
1 Cup of your favorite roasted coffee bean (I used Eight O'Clock Bokar Beans)
1 Cup of dark chocolate chips
3 Tablespoons of butter
1 Tablespoon of powdered sugar
Using a double boiler melt the dark chocolate chips and butter. Make sure to mix through out the melting. Once the mixture starts to get good and melted add the powdered sugar and mix well. Once the mixture is completely melted, add the beans and mix well.
Then remove from the heat.
Immediately spoon the mixture on to a paper sack or sheet of wax paper. Make sure to separate in to bite size pieces.
Once that is done put them in to the refrigerator for 2 hours. Then it is time to eat!
This makes a small batch, so try them out and I am sure you will like them!
