Today is National Cappuccino Day, so I thought I would stay in the coffee bean family with this recipe. I’ve always wanted to make chocolate covered espresso beans. They’re delicious and bite sized and oh-so-pretty! However, every time I’ve tried, I’ve ended up with sparsely coated beans or something more akin toespresso bean chocolate bark.
So, when I was in the craft store browsing at all the lovely baking and candy making supplies and happened upon a chocolate mold that I thought might make my chocolate covered espresso bean dream a reality, I was sold. Sure, it’s a square mold that makes candy bar shaped chocolate pieces, but it would do the trick.
