Homemade Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans Recipe (3 easy steps)

Coffee is probably one of your favorite beverages (if not your favorite??) since you have found this very niched coffee blog. However, I bet you like the taste the coffee in general. Not only as a beverage but in cakes, ice cream, and candy as well? 


I do at least, so today I’m showing you how to make delicious chocolate covered coffee beans! And it is so easy!! You can use any coffee beans you like and whatever chocolate do you prefer – but as always, the better ingredients the better result.


What you need:

You’ll only need two ingredients and the process is super easy. You’ll only need whole coffee beans and chocolate, that’s it. Easy, right? Let’s continue with the recipe. 



Coffee beans in chocolate



Step 1 – Melt the Chocolate

The first step is to melt the chocolate. You could use a microwave for this, but I’m melting my chocolate on the stove. It’s not hard at all, you just place a saucepan with just a few inches of water on the stove and put it on low heat. Then, place all the chocolate you want to melt in a bowl and place the bowl in the saucepan. 


The base of the bowl shouldn’t touch the water, and it is important that the bowl is large enough to rest on the edges of the saucepan. Let the heat from the pan and water heat up the bowl and melt the chocolate slowly with a spatula. If you want some more directions on this, this blog post is quite helpful.


When the chocolate is completely melted, turn off the heat, lift up the bowl from the saucepan and move on to the next step.


What chocolate should you use? 

The better quality, the better result. You could use either, white, dark, or milk chocolate. Whatever you like the most. I really love all the variates and if I can, I make three different batches so I can have all three at the same time. However, if you only want to use one, I would go with the milk chocolate.





Step 2 – Add the Coffee Beans to The Chocolate 

The next step is super simple, just drop all the coffee beans into the melted chocolate and make sure all the coffee beans are covered in chocolate. Then, let them cool down for a couple of minutes (depending on the room temperature). We just want the batch to cool down enough for the chocolate to stick a bit better to the coffee beans.


When the batch has cooled down and started to thicken, it’s time to separate the beans from each other. First, put the whole batch on a sheet of baking paper. Then, start to separate the beans, using a fork. This takes some patients, but you’ll get faster and faster for each bean separated.


Variations on this recipe 

You can also use ground coffee. For example, by putting some melted chocolate on the paper and just add some ground coffee on top. This is ridiculously tasty! 




What coffee beans to use?

As usual, a lot comes down to your personal preference, but I would recommend a medium roast high-quality bean. It is not super important that the beans are freshly roasted (even though it can’t harm), but since you pretty much are going to eat whole coffee beans with some added chocolate, the quality of the beans is becoming quite important. 


I recommend DripBeans Everyday Hero coffee, a balanced high-quality bean perfect for this recipe.



Step 3 – Let the Beans Cool Down


When all the beans are separated, put the baking paper together with the beans in the fridge or freeze in order for the chocolate to harden. After just a couple of minutes, the chocolate should be hardened and you can enjoy your homemade chocolate covered coffee beans. Just pull remove them from the paper and put them in a jar or bowl.
