What can I make with these ingredients??
So here is the general recipe:
Christie M's Chocolate Coffee Nuts
3 cups of raw nuts (your choice, but I found pecans to be best)
1/3 cup Folgers Crystals (I used decaf)
1/3 cup of sugar
add a little bit of water at a time stirring, until a syrup is formed. (the consistency of maple syrup)
Spread nuts on jelly roll pan and pour syrup over nuts coating them.
Roast at 300º F for about 20-25 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
Turn out onto parchment paper, separate and allow to cool.
In a microwave safe dish, melt chocolate (either chocolate chips or melting chocolate)
I used about 1/2 cup. Pour nuts into container and stir, coating nuts. Turn back onto parchment paper and allow to cool and dry.
Break apart and keep in airtight container.

(I have not had a reaction to Ghirardelli Chocolate)
According to the company, Ghirardelli only produces one product that
contains gluten (its Luxe Milk Crisp singles and bars, which contain
barley malt). However, all its other chocolate bar products, including
the Intense Dark, Luxe Milk, and Squares chocolates (the ones filled
with flavors like caramel and raspberry) are made on the same lines. The
company does clean the lines between products.
Here is the finished product ready to give for gifts!
