Spoon into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut tiny tip from 1 bottom corner of bag; drizzle chocolate over bars. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until chocolate is firm. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 6 rows. Store covered in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

Use an egg separator to separate the egg white from the yolk. A separator consists of a small bowl-shaped center that holds the yolk with a surrounding space that allows the white to slip through into a bowl.

In most grocery stores, you'll find instant espresso coffee powder in the same aisle as the instant coffee.
