Mocha Marshmallow Crispy Treats

"I got this recipe from George Duran's- "Ham On The Street" t.v. show, on the Food Network. I have also substituted crisp cocoa cereal in place of regular rice crispy cereal, which made for an addictive chocolate mocha treat!"

  1. I could not get the coffee to mix in. It was still in little pcs after stirring for a long time. It tastes okay with coffee crunches in it. Made for summer comfort cafe.
  2. Made for Summer '09 Comfort Cafe. If something can be crispy and gooey at the same time, these would fit the bill. I found it a bit difficult to mix together and pat in the pan; but I'm sure there are many tricks in the trade. I found a couple that worked well for me. Will definitely make again, but put in a smaller pan. Very good recipe!
  3. I brought these to a church lake party and the adults were diving into them before lunch (the kids loved them too)! I used 2 T of espresso powder and it had just the right intensity. I realized I didn't read the recipe instructions and I added the espresso to the butter - it worked out fine : ) I dusted the top with Ghiradelli's Ground Sweet Cocoa Powder - perfect with the coffee! When making Rice Krispie treats I always just spread them out on a big platter and pat them down ( damp finger don't stick) and I like to make them as close to serving time as possible so they are nice and fresh and gooey. I'll be making these again very soon. Made for the Comfort Cafe July 09
  4. Delish! Thought this would be an adult type dessert, but the kids devoured it before I could get more than 1 piece. Made for Spring PAC 09. Thanks for sharing! Update: I made this again, with choc. rice krispies this time and the adults at my party raved over it! Thank you again!
  5. These were made for my husband, the coffeeholic in our household, and he enjoyed them quite a bit. I used 3 tablespoons of "regular" instant decaf coffee and 1 tablespoon of instant espresso. <b>BAM!</b> He was up for hours! :D Ok, I admit I had a bite (normally not big on sweets) and loved them! Thanks for posting, Ratatouille! <b>Made for PAC Fall 2008</b>
