We love the Food Network show "Ham on the Street" in an episode we watched Chef made Rice Krispies squares with coffee on the trunk of a NYC cab with a hot plate. We decided to try them, in the kitchen of course, and they were SUPER! What a great change from the average krispie treat! NOTE: This is a recipe that I inherited from the Zaar Account and it has been drawn to my attention that the origonal recipe contains 10 oz of marshmellows, and that 16 oz might make it a little sticky. Since this hasn't been a problem so far with most reviewers and indeed some had success when adding even more marshmellow, I won't change the ingredients as stated but will mention it here in the description. I think that maybe the brand of Marshmellow you use might make a difference ? I have also added Chocolate as an optional extra for drizzling over the top, but quantity given is a "guess-timate" becuase personal preference in how thick you wish to make it, is everything!
- Melt margarine in sauce pan over low heat add marshmallows, coffee and stir until completely melted.
- Add Rice Krispies until completely coated.
- Using your clean hands, spray your hands with with non-stick spray, press evenly into a 9x13 cooking spray coated pan.
- Cut into squares when cool.
These were tasty, easy and different. Only complaint was the inconsistent marshmallow amounts based on size. I only had mini and had exactly 4 cups which was appx 1/2 pkg. This would equal 5 oz. No way was it enough to cover 6 cups of krispies. I used 5 cups of krispies and wished I had only used 4 cups as they were a little crumbly. If using minis, I would use the whole pkg (10 oz) also. Based on previous reviews, I also reduced the coffee to 2 Tbls then drizzled with white chocolate. Thanks for posting!
I agree...bit too much coffee but its not too much that no one will eat them. My daughter loves coffee anything. I didnt make a drizzle I melted about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and smeared it all over the top. Its a nice adultish version of rice krispie treats...next time I think I will cut the coffee down to 2 tbsps and see how that goes.
This was way too much coffee for me - don't know if it's the instant coffee I used or if it's the fact that I made this in the microwave. Waited the next day to see if it would be less powerful - still too much for me!! Like the idea though of adding coffee - will try again with a little less and maybe will drizzle some chocolate too!! TFS! :)
