Xocolatl : Dark Chocolate Coffee Beans Give You A Delish Caffeine Dose

 

 

 

Blogging the letter X in the A-Z Blogging challenge . Was Xrtemely difficult to find a topic.  Then I hit on Xocolatl (Ancient Aztec for chocolate ) and decided to make dark chocolate covered coffee beans . Two terrific flavors : coffee and chocolate come together in this mouth-watering recipe !! Eat them as a snack especially when you need a caffeine boost or sprinkle them over desserts !  Chocolate, especially dark gives you a high dose of antioxidants and magnesium . Coffee beans will give you pure unadulterated caffeine . Team the two together for a heady ” wake me up” treat. This recipe is super simple and has just 2  ingredients. You can make them diabetic friendly by using unsweetened dark chocolate and agave nectar. Be creative ! Add a dash of mint or cinnamon to the recipe if you wish.

 

Messing around with Chocolate and Coffee is FUN !!
