Roasted Coffee BeansWhat You Need To Make Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans At Home by Muna wa Wanjiru

Given the great taste match between coffee and chocolate, no wonder there is a whole variety of sweets combining the two: chocolate candies with coffee filling, chocolate covered coffee beans, chocolate and coffee cakes and so on. You really don’t have to be a chef to prepare some of the most delicious of desserts: for instance chocolate covered coffee beans are easy to make at home.

All you need is quality coffee beans and some chocolate chips to melt. What you have to do is drop the coffee beans in liquid chocolate, take them out and let the hot chocolate cool on a waxed surface. It is usually advisable to let them harden for at least six or eight hours before serving them or even more simply than that: use the freezer!

For even more delicious flavors you may add vanilla or hazelnut powder to the liquid chocolate or you may roll the chocolate covered coffee beans through such a mix while the composition is still hot. This kind of dessert makes an excellent choice for a party treat, and you can be 100% sure the guests will appreciate it.

Chocolate covered coffee beans that you make at home could be even more special if white chocolate is used for the dripping. Chips usually come in a variety of flavors: there is dark or semi-sweet chocolate that preserves the taste of roasted coffee beans unchanged. One thing you should be careful about is that the coffee beans be high quality; buy something you are familiar with or go for the grocer’s recommendation.

Several highly effective tricks can be made when preparing chocolate covered coffee beans: first of all, there is no restriction about using two different types of chocolate for the coating. However, make sure there are no contrasting flavors used; for instance, white milk chocolate and hazelnut dark chocolate could be the perfect combination.

If you want to give the chocolate covered coffee beans a more intense cocoa flavor, you can use some extra cocoa powder to pass the candies through when they are not cool yet. Or another trick here relies on the use of mint candy powder to make the chocolate covered coffee beans a bit spicy.

Regardless of the choice of ingredients, the home making of this dessert requires a lot of care concerning the temperature of the melting chocolate in which you drip the coffee beans; sometimes a steam bath is more adequate to use once the chocolate has reached the boiling point.

  8. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.

    However think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips,
    this site could undeniably be one of the very best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    • Most of my articles have videos for a long time now, and every one of my articles has a photo…I’m not sure where you’re looking, YouTube…

      Here is the link to all of my shows on YouTube too.

  9. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    • This is not something I would reply to here in this forum, Green Coffee…I would like to keep it on topic to the post.

      Websites can range from free to thousands of dollars, it just depends on what you’re looking for, and how computer savvy you are yourself.

  10. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think about if you added some great
    graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent
    but with images and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its
    niche. Wonderful blog!

    • Vernita! I’m wondering if the graphics and videos are showing up for you on my site.

      My site is rich with photos and tons of cooking shows in video format.

      I do hope you’ll take another look, maybe in a different browser on your computer.
