I've been craving the sweets, as of late (strict wedding diet and all that), and I came across this very tasty-looking recipe that's a twist on the traditional rice cereal treat!  This week's Recipe Card features Latte  Rice Cereal Treats, originally posted by Marg (CaymanDesigns) on food.com.

Yield: 26 bars
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes 
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 (10 ounce) package marshmallows
  • 6 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips or 1/4 cup candy coating, melted

Melt the butter in a large saucepan on low heat. Add the instant coffee and vanilla, stirring well.  Add the marshmallows; cook until they are completely melted and the mixture is well blended, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Add the cereal; mix well.  Press firmly into greased 13x9 inch pan.  Cool completely.  Cut into bars.  Melt white chocolate chips and drizzle over the bars.  Allow the chocolate to cool and harden.
