Recipe: Chocolate coffee bites

There are only a few things that can mess with my willpower and usual tendency to eat sensibly. One of the biggies: dark chocolate-covered coffee beans. That’s the reason I (almost) never buy them.

One night I was studying and I felt like I *needed* my cacao-caffeine fix, but all the shops were closed. I came up with this super simple, quick and dangerous alternative.

Chocolate coffee bites
Yield: 6-12 units, depending on size

Chocolate coffee bites

Ingredients

  • 100 grams dark chocolate (min 70% cacao, 85% recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon ground coffee (coarsely ground for plunger recommended)
  • 1 tablespoon cacao nibs

Directions

  1. Break chocolate in small pieces with your hands, place in a bowl.
  2. Boil some water in a pot, turn the heat off and place the bowl over the pot to melt the chocolate, stirring with a rubber spatula.
  3. Mix in the coffee and cacao nibs.
  4. Pour in an ice tray (I make mine in a lemon slice-shaped silicone tray that yields 6 big portions). Alternatively you can use a small rectangular tray and chop it up before serving. Cover with cling wrap and place in the freezer.
  5. Wait patiently until set and enjoy.

  1. They sound absolutely awesome. Love how easy they are to make too!

  2. Here’s something that’s going to make me unpopular…I don’t like the taste of coffee!

    I wonder if I could replicate this with tea leaves though…perhaps use a fruity berry tea?

    1. What?? Kidding, I know a few other people who don’t like the taste or even smell of coffee. Berry tea sounds like a delicious alternative.

  3. that is so simple to make! amazing!
