1 cup roasted coffee beans
4 ounces chocolate chips
3 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional)
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler until liquid and smooth. Drop in a handful of beans, and stir them around. Scoop them out with a spoon, and set them out on wax paper. Keep them separate. Continue until all the beans are covered. They will harden overnight, or if you are in a hurry, you can freeze them for about half an hour. Once hard, they won't stick together and can be stored in any airtight container.
NOTE: Before chocolate covered beans harden completely, you can roll them in cocoa powder, then let them finish hardening.
