These cost a lot more than a penny ...

The reason I don't bother buying these is ....















"they" soon become "this"....















... even if they do have a very strange crunch under that lovely dark chocolate.

Chocolate covered Espresso Beans.  Weird hey?  I would much rather eat chocolate covered raisins..which they look like to me.... but, I had to buy some... or maybe I should just use the raisins for my bars.

I want to perfect some granola or energy type bars for taking along on a golf outing.  Something with substance ..that tastes good...and now..after thinking on it.. maybe something with a bit of zing for energy.  Why not some funky beans?  Sure enough.... looked on the recipe pages and there they were.... recipes including chocolate covered beans.  Really. That's my next kitchen experiment.
Okay...this blog is in high danger of becoming my second food blog... and the first is languishing....

Those are yummy whether they are raisins or espresso beans.

Sounds like a great addition to an energy bar. It would be nice to have a good recipe for them. Beaut to pop something a little bit healthy into the mouth when needed.
