instant coffee granules
strong brewed coffee
2 1/2 cups
graham cracker crumbs
finely chopped walnuts
So good! This recipe needs some small changes though. I have been baking for many years, so have learned to go with my instincts when trying a new recipe.
I cut out the 2 tsp. of coffee granules, as it would be way too strong and bitter. I also cut the icing sugar to 2 cups, and I added two tbls. corn syrup as it gives an extra mellow sweetness to the frosting.Whenever I make frosting for cakes or squares etc., I always add corn syrup to give it an extra rich and creamy taste.
Use a 9 inch pan, fits just right.However if you want very thin and dainty type squares,use a 9x13 inch pan.
Also, they would be better without the melted chocolate on them, don't need it really. They have all the flavor and sweetness without it.
What a HUGE disappointment! I raced all over town to get the ingred's for this...and it ended up in the trash. It didn't tell you what size pan to use, the mocha layer was bitter, and 15 mins was not near long enough to chill in the fridge before adding the white chocolate. Some recipes I botch I keep just for myself to nibble on after deciding not to serve to guests. Not this one. Hope others have better success.
This is a graham cracker crust with frosting. The coconut threw off the coffee taste, and the white chocolate made an already really sweet bar SUPER sweet. Nobody finished theirs. I might try it again sometime without the coconut and white chocolate though.
"Yummy" said my friend Barb. Made these for a potluck lunch. The only variations I made were to drizzle the white chocolate and added mini chocolate chips on top for texture. Very complex blend of flavors and yes, very sweet!
These bars are soooo good! I had about 40 minutes to prepare a dessert for a pot luck and didn't want to make blah brownies from a box. I used pre-made graham cracker crumbs, but next time I think I'll crush them myself for more texture in the crust. Instead of spreading the white chocolate on top, I melted it in the microwave in a ziplock baggie and snipped off the corner to drizzle it. Mine weren't chewy, as another reviewer found, but I also didn't store them in the fridge. These are so quick and easy... if you like coffee and chocolate, you'll love them!
Thanks Otto for a fabulous recipe. These were chewy, delicious and a hit with the room mates. I will make these again, and will substitute more coffee and kahlua or bailys for the milk.
Relatively easy to prepare. My coffee loving customers loved them. Thanks! :-)))))
I was so excited to try a great coconut bar, but this was just wayyy to sweet.
