Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans Recipe

Yields8 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time10 mins

Chocolate covered espresso beans are quick, energizing, and the perfect afternoon snack. All you need are a few minutes and two ingredients!

Coffee beans in burlap bag with blue background

 ½ cup coffee beans
 ¾ cup dark chocolate chips or baking bars

Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.


Melt chocolate on the stove top in a doubler boiler. Place a pot of water on the burner and let it boil. Once boiling, place another pot on top of the water pot and mix the chocolate.

Be careful not to burn the chocolate, and be sure to NOT get the chocolate wet. It will ruin the texture and you'll have to start over.


Remove the chocolate from heat. Mix the espresso beans in with chocolate to ensure they're fully coated.


Remove each coffee bean one by one and set on the parchment paper. It won't work to lump them out by spoonfuls on the parchment paper.


Let the chocolate harden on the counter for at least 30 minutes. Or place in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
