  • Recipes with Coffee

    Ran accross this and thought it looked interesting:

    Coffee Marshmallow Crispy Treats

    3 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for greasing pan and hands
    1 (10-ounce) package mini marshmallows
    2 to 3 tablespoons instant coffee or espresso
    6 cups rice cereal (recommended: Rice Krispies)

    Lightly butter an 8-inch square pan.

    In a large pot, melt the butter over very low heat. Stir in the marshmallows, getting them all coated with the butter. Slowly melt the marshmallows, stirring frequently. When the marshmallows are melted and smooth, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the instant coffee (2 tablespoons for a rich coffee flavor, 3 tablespoons for a real kick) and mix until it is dissolved into the melted marshmallow. Gently fold in the rice cereal. When it is completely coated, lightly press the mixture into the prepared pan with your buttered hands. When cool, cut the treats into bars and serve.

    Itll be interesting to see how this works using espresso rather than (blech!) instant.

    Could the mini marshmallows be substituted with marshmallow fluff? Saves you on melting them.

        Ok - were only just cracking the crust of the silly season, but I innovated a very tasty festive related treat today that I just had to share with CS seasonal gourmands.

        Was baking a batch of mince tarts, made a mince mix using traditional selection of dried vine fruits, peel, dried and glace cherries, minced prunes, dates, glace ginger. Using cloves and cinnamon as the base note spices I lubed it all up with a decent measure of doppio ristressos (about 6) and a slug of tia maria for want of any other handy spirits and some apricot puree saved from earlier in the stonefruit season. Sweetened with coffee crystals and slowly stewed till sticky and jammy, it is just sensational, the coffee gives such depth to the fruits.

        Espresso, what cant it improve!!!!

        Tinsel and pretty lights people.
