New Years recipe: Espresso Bark

I don't plan on making wild and crazy (or unreasonable) New Years resolutions.  I will continue to eat healthy and exercise.  I will try to stress less about things that I cannot control.  
I will NOT be giving up coffee or chocolate!!!

Espresso Bark
Ready in: 25 mins.
Servings: 12

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon margarine
3/4 cup whole coffee beans
1/4 cup chopped white chocolate

1. Cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper.
2. Combine the chocolate chips and margarine in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring between each, until melted and smooth. Mix in the coffee beans until evenly distributed.
3. Pour the chocolate out onto the waxed paper and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle the pieces of white chocolate evenly over the top and press in lightly to make sure they stick. Place in the freezer until set, about 5 minutes. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.

That sounds really good because I LOVE coffee and chocolate, but not sure if my teeth would like crunching on the coffee beans.
I might try it just the same because my family would love this. :)

Denise, if you enjoy chocolate covered espresso or coffee beans, you will LOVE this recipe!

I forgot to add...If you don't like the thought of crunching on beans, you could probably add instant coffee or instant espresso.

Yep, that's what I was thinking, too.
Chocolate and coffee is such a great combination!
