Have you ever had chocolate covered coffee beans? So decadent! However, they can be a bit pricey. So, a couple of years ago I came up with this alternative that is simple to make and much more affordable. I made this a couple of weeks ago for my husband as a gift for his birthday. He was in heaven. And, the best part for him is that the kids don’t like the Coffee Bark, so he gets to keep it all for himself.
½ cup whole bean coffee
12 oz. pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips
Pour coffee beans into a coffee grinder and pulse 2-3 times to roughly chop the beans. Put chocolate chips into a microwave safe bowl and heat on high for 30 seconds. Stir and repeat process until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in coffee beans. Spread onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm and break into pieces. Store the coffee bark in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
