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!

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!
