Here's a wonderful recipe for simple homemade chocolate covered coffee beans - an insanely delicious treat for a coffee and chocolate lover! Use good quality roasted coffee beans for the best results.
Melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips in a double boiler over low heat to keep from burning the chocolate. You can also melt it in the microwave, but remember to stir it every 15-30 seconds.
After it is smooth, turn off the heat and let it cool for a minute, then mix in about 1/3 cup of the roasted coffee beans and stir.
With a spoon or fork, lay the coffee beans out on some wax paper on a tray, making sure they are all separated from each other.
Let them cool completely before separating into bags for gift giving. You can dust with high quality cocoa powder or icing sugar before serving.
