Father’s Day gifts can be so difficult to pick out!  I can’t really afford to buy my hubby what he really wants (a used, 4 seater convertible BMW, lol) and the poor guy doesn’t need another button down shirt.  (This custom football is a fabulous gift idea, but it doesn’t really count, since I had it made for him over 3 weeks ago!)

So this year I will be treating him to a day of his favorites!  Sausage and gravy casserole for breakfast, BBQ for dinner and blueberry dump cake for dessert.  (Ok and I am also giving him this– but that is more of a selfish gift as I hope he will use it to keep the dirt and debris off the back porch …)

I am also making him a batch of his favorite Espresso Bean and Almond Chocolate Bark!  The entire batch will be for him.

Around the holidays, I was inspired to try and create chocolate covered coffee beans like you see at Starbucks to give as gifts.  For whatever reason, I could not get enough chocolate to stick to the beans.  Hubby suggested I just dump all the coffee beans back into the chocolate and make a chocolate candy instead.

So I did and it came out pretty great!  One word of warning, you should not eat this as your before bedtime snack – you’ll never get to sleep!
