Subject: Chocolate-Covered Gourmet Coffee Beans
 

Coffee and chocolate have always been a great combination and this recipe brings them together in the simplest of ways. Aromatic gourmet coffee beans smothered in smooth rich dark chocolate, what could be better? Great for serving with coffee or decorating cakes and desserts. I have opted for dark chocolate however white chocolate and milk chocolate work equally as well.

Ingredients
Coffee beans - quantity as required
Large bar of high quality dark chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa solids)

Method
Break the chocolate into squares and place into a heatproof bowl and melt over a pan of simmering water and stir until smooth
Dip coffee beans into the melted chocolate and allow the excess to drip off
Place on greaseproof paper
Allow the coffee beans to stand until the chocolate has set
Remove from the greaseproof paper and store in an airtight container until ready for use

Although they probably taste better homemade with high quality fresh beans and gourmet chocolate, this is hardly a new idea. Chocolate-covered coffee beans are freely available from various manufacturers. However, thanks for the recipe.

Thanks for your comments.

I agree, they are widely available to buy. Personally, I prefer making them myself though as I can select the beans and the chocolate, and experiment with flavours. I recently made a batch using my Peruvian Tunki Organic beans coated in Green & Black's Dark 85%, they were amazing. The great thing about making them yourself is that you can tailor them to your own personal taste and you know they're at their freshest.
