Rather than get into all the stuff I keep promising to, I’m going to let you in on something awesome I invented today: coffee candy.
The inspiration for coffee candy comes from Maggie Brown’s (a restaurant/bar near Pratt in Brooklyn). There, after eating an $8 burger or $11 hot wings, patrons are served a delicious piece of chocolate with coffee grains in it. Chocolate with coffee grains in it is exactly what I invented today.
I’m aware that it isn’t considered “inventing” if you just copy something someone else has already made, but I figured out how to replicate it without a recipe or any guidance, so I’m taking what I call “credit” for it.
Here’s how to enjoy some yourself:
- Melt some chocolate chips of your choice. I used Milk Chocolate Chips (which I’m told you should never use for chocolate chip cookies) because that’s what I had. I’m told some people also like Semi-Sweet Chocolate and still others like Dark Chocolate.
- Add the coffee grains of your choice. I used a dark breakfast blend whose name I forget because I threw the package away back in January, but if you don’t like caffeine or you plan to eat these chocolates before going to bed, I’d suggest using your favorite decaf.
- Drop on wax paper or tin foil, whatever.
