How to prepare
- 100 grams chocolate bar
- 1/3 cup coffee beans
- Cocoa powder
- Icing sugar
- Crushed nuts
- Coconut flakes
- Freeze-dried berry powder
- Melted white chocolate
- A double boiler, or a microwave and a microwave-safe bowl

Step by Step Preparation
- Put your small pieces of the chocolate in a double saucepan (the chocolate pan is placed on top of another pan with boiling water). The simmering water helps the chocolate to melt and maintain its quality.
- Stir continuously until all chocolate melts. Stir at intervals of 30 seconds to allow all chocolate to melt.
- Remove the chocolate from the heat, add coffee beans, and continue stirring. Coconut flakes, crushed nuts are added at this point. Allow the chocolate to cool and dry. Repeat process to allow thick layers of chocolate.
- Separate the coffee beans: Lift individual coffee beans with a fork and allow excess chocolate to drip and place them on the baking tray. If the chocolate dries, put in back in the simmering water to melt again.
- Put the beans in the fridge to cool for one hour. The process allows the cholate to cool off and harden.
- Add a second coat of chocolate with different species and flavors. Toppings and ingredients are added at this point to make your chocolate beans get tasty flavors.
