    Used this as a base, added a bit of semi sweet and coconut oil for shine, and skipped the cocoa powder. I used a wooden skewer to flip the beans down onto the wax paper individually and it worked great. No clumps for my buddies, they'll be enjoying one sweet bean at a time, thanks for the starter recipe :)

    Pretty nice recipe overall. I modified it by using a microwaveable container, melting milk chocolate, dumping in the roasted arabica coffee beans to coat, then put them into a mesh food strainer to get the excess chocolate off and finally adding the beans to a plastic bag with baking cocoa mixed with sugar and shaking them. They have a nice kick of caffeine to get you through an afternoon slump.

    I dont have the patience for spooning out a hundred little beans from melted chocolate and trying not to let them stick together on the paper so I just poured out the mixture onto wax paper and allowed to cool. When cool I broke it into smallish pieces and called it coffee bark. Also I used semisweet choc chips instead of milk chocolate, and added a small amount of food grade wax to the melted chocolate (like you would when making buckeyes) to help the chocolate set up harder and give it a shiny appearance. Everyone loved it!
