Cocoa Espresso Rice Krispy Treats

Mmm coffee + chocolatey gooeyness = 🙂


I love dessert. Chocolate. AND coffee. Lots of coffee. Even more than all of these is these flavors blending into gooey, marhsmallow rice krispies, so this dessert is obviously going to win my heart over. My roommates sure did love them too. The secret to the healthier-ish, gluten free marshmallows used? The brand called SmashMallow, a simply made marshmallow by a California company. The marshmallows are heavenly! They come in a variety of flavors, including espresso bean, cinnamon churro (the absolute BEST flavor!), mint chocolate chip, strawberries and cream, toasted pineapple and coconut, and root beer float. Seriously, get your hands on the cinnamon churro, espresso bean, and mint choc chip. TO. DIE. FOR.SmashMallow_EspressoBean-min

The perfect pantry staple to keep on hand whenever you need a snack, go-to breakfast, or perfect base for rice krispy treats. 😉
