Being the coffee addict that I am… when I came across this grown-up Rice Krispy Treat recipe on Shutterbean, I couldn’t turn away. Rice Krispy treats with coffee AND chocolate? Yes please!
I’m pretty sure it was the allure of this fab dessert recipe that was the final push to send me grocery shopping this weekend. SO glad I did. Except that it took, like… 2 hours. Ugh! Anyways… enjoy this awesome recipe!
Coffee & Chocolate Marshmallow Krispies
Recipe adapted from: Shutterbean
1 stick Salted Butter
2 bags Mini Marshmallows (10 oz)
5 cups Rice Krispies Cereal
1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
2 teaspoons Ground Coffee (not instant)
1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1. Line a square baking dish with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Melt the butter over med-low heat in a large pot or dutch oven. Add 1 1/3 bags of marshmallows once the butter is melted and stir occasionally until the mallows are melted and smoothed out.
2. Using a wet spatula, fold in the rice cereal. Add almonds, cranberries, ground coffee, chocolate chips, and marshmallows and fold quickly to distribute.
3. Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish. Wet your hands and press the treats into the pan into an even layer. Now, let cool completely (be patient) and cut into squares.
These were soooo tasty! My first recommendation is to definitely let them cool all the way, as it will make it so much easier to cut. NEXT, You should actually turn the heat OFF of the pot once you’re going to mix everything after the cereal in. It will keep the chocolate chips and extra marshies together and melt less. (I did not do this… still delish but not as pretty).
These Krispies were really fun and so easy to make. It took less than 10 minutes for the entire thing to be made, cleaned up, and put into the refrigerator to cool. The hardest part is the waiting! I’m thinking Fruity Pebbles & White Choc chips next?!????
