“If you like chocolate covered coffee beans, you'll love this. And it's waaay easier to make.”
3 1/2 pounds

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup coffee beans (I used columbian)
  • 1 ounce paraffin wax (find this with the canning supplies)


  1. Roast the coffee beans on a cookie sheet in a hot oven for 5-10 mins, or until you can start to smell them.
  2. Heat wax and chocolate in the top of a double boiler. I used a metal mixing bowl over a sauce pan of boiling water. Heat the water just to a simmer prior to adding the chocolate in the top. Too hard of a boil will heat the chocolate too quickly and cause it to seize up. Be sure to heat the chocolate just until melted, then remove from heat.
  3. Add the warm coffee beans to the melted chocolate/wax mixture, and stir to cover completely.
  4. Pour mixture out onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet and allow to cool overnight.
  5. Break into bite sized pieces and enjoy!
  6. I must warn you that this is not something that you'd want to give to small children or eat a lot of in one sitting as the caffeine really packs a whallop!
