    They're really good roughly ground & sprinkled on top of coffee drinks - especially iced ones or ice cream.

            I just made a shortbread cookie, with the chocolate covered beans chopped and added to the batter. The dough is chilled, rolled, and cut into small rounds...a perfect"adult" cookie. And it's great served with ice cream.

              We use 'em as instant portable caffeine when we cross time zones.

                I use them as an add-in for my Mocha Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

                  FWIW, dark roast coffee beans ground to a fine powder are excellent on ice cream.

                  Give them to my grandnephew so he can eat his favorite candy.

                    They're a great mid-afternoon pick-me-up at work.

                      Eat em baby ! Just be careful , when I was younger I had a roommate who managed a coffee shop , she left a large ( in retrospect ) bag home one day , and my other roommate and myself ate the whole bag ( About five pounds ) in a day . Anyone who says caffeine isn't a drug never tried that . We didn't know they weren't candy , like M&Ms . Still love em , though .

                        I freebase 'em... (easiest way to get coffee AND chocolate into my system FAST!)
