Eating coffee beans may seem strange at first but they’re totally edible and when you mix them with chocolate, they’re so exotically delicious! I mean, who doesn’t love coffee beans covered with chocolate? They’re super simple and straightforward to make at home and it’s a lot easier than you think. All it takes is two ingredients, chocolate and roasted coffee beans. I’ll show you how it’s done.
Any type of roasted coffee beans will work – so choose your favorite. You can also use espresso beans.
You’ll also need semi-sweet chocolate chips, I used Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chips but any brand will do.
You’ll also need a small saucepan with a double boiler, a rubber spatula and a cookie sheet lined with wax paper
To begin, add the roasted coffee beans and chocolate chips to the double boiler and simmer on medium-low heat. Scrape the sides with a rubber spatula until the chocolate chips are melted and the beans are covered.
Using a fork, scoop up the beans and place onto the lined cookie sheet in small clumps. If you decide to use espresso beans, sort the beans spaced out one by one.
Once the beans are sorted, place the lined cookie sheet into the freezer until chocolate has hardened.
Store in the freezer for maximum freshness
