Recipe for Coffee Chews

I am interested in an easy inexpensive "coffee chews" recipe. It needs to pack a lot of punch to deliver a great deal of caffeine kick in a small portion. I know about chocolate covered coffee beans and have had them for myself and have given them as a gift. I realize there are free recipes online to easily make my own. The problem is I would like something similar with no hard crunching needed, something chewy and delicious please!

coffee chews recipe


1/4 cup shortening

1/4 cup butter

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon instant espresso, dissolved in 1 teaspoon hot water

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup rolled quick oats (NOT instant)

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup chocolate sprinkles


In large mixing bowl beat shortening, brown sugar, egg, vanilla and coffee mixture until light and fluffy.

Beat in flours, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.

Divide dough into two equal parts, and shape each half into a roll about 1 1/2" wide.

Roll in chocolate sprinkles, pressing lightly.

Wrap tightly, and refrigerate at least 12 hours. Alternatively, freeze logs up to 6 months before proceeding.

Heat oven to 375ºF.

Cut rolls into 1/4" slices, and place 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 6 to 8 minutes (12 min if frozen). Cool on rack.

This an idea that I haven't tried, but it would pack caffeine in a chew. Make caramel candy...sugar and very careful not to burn yourself. Add instant espresso granules...or instant coffee, but the espresso is smoother. The amount to add is the variable...I would add a little, stir, cool on a teaspoon, taste, then add more until it's as strong as you want it. I've made caramel for pastry making and didn't have trouble remelting it so long as I didn't re-cook it. Good luck
