Why I Love This Recipe

As my cajun friends say, "Talk about!" These are very decadent and you really must love coffee to enjoy them. Add a glass of champagne and some raspberry or strawberry sauce for dipping and let the romance commence!

Ingredients You'll Need

12 ounces semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup rum
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup heavy cream
40 whole coffee beans
1/2 cup finely ground coffee beans
1/4 cup cocoa powder


Melt chocolate in top of double boiler.

Remove from heat.

Beat in butter, 2 tablespoons at a time.

Add egg yolks, rum and heavy cream, beat until smooth.

Cover and chill until thickened to dough consistency.

Take 1 teaspoon chocolate mixture at a time and roll into 1-inch ball.

Push 1 coffee bean into center, using a toothpick.

Fill in hole with chocolate.

Sift together ground coffee beans and cocoa powder onto a plate.

Roll each chocolate covered coffee bean in the cocoa powder mixture.
