1) From: J Anderson
howdy all,
  I was told that someone on this site had a recipe for a thing called "chocolate coffee bark" and I am interested in retrieving it from where ever it might be or from whoever once posted it. Any help out there would be appreciated.
  Thanks & Happy New Year,  Bobby

Hi Bobby,
I purchased the 16oz package of chocolate labeled "Almond Bark" at the
grocery store.  Typically this is melted in a double boiler, almonds
thrown in, then poured the whole mixture out onto foil to cool.  Then
it is broken up...
When I melt the chocolate, I heat it just enough for the chocolate to
start melting, then I turn the heat down to a simmer, and stir the
chocolate slowly until it is melted.  Alchemist John said around 80
degres is what he was looking for - my thermometer doesn't help me
that low....
So I used a half pound of the chocolate, and about 1 oz of coffee
beans, ground to a fine powder.  Toss it into the chocolate and fold
together with a whisk...
I did another batch with white chocolate and coffee.
I did a third batch with dark chocolate, cooled, then white chocolate,
and then sprinkled a package of broken Andes peppermint pieces into
the white before it hardened...
You might try dusting the ground coffee on top of the melted
chocolate, could be good!
Hope that helps!
Brett

Semi- or bittersweet chocolate melted in a double-boiler with powdered 
coffee.  Spread on waxed paper to cool, then break up as you would nut 
brittle.
