A roller disco in the middle of the desert? But, of course. A movie theatre (complete with concession stand) rising from nothingness at the edge of the universe? Why not. A stegosaurus art car illuminated in neon, cruising the night with its tricked out sound system at full tilt? Obviously. A marching band competition with dancers on stilts and crowd sing-a-long in the middle of a dust storm? Yes! As someone aptly note, "These amazing lunatics are the heroes of our community. We salute them.”
Two nostalgic treats merge into one with this goodie. Classic Rice Krispies Treats are retro fitted with chocolate, studs of salted peanuts and marshmallows, and a subtle buzz of coffee.
- 2 sticks (8 oz) unsalted butter
- 4 bags (10 oz each) mini marshmallows
- 5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
- 5 cups Cocoa Krispies cereal
- 3 cups roasted salted peanuts
- 2 cups dark chocolate chips
- 3 teaspoons instant coffee
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- Cooking spray
- Line a 9x13-inch cake pan with plastic wrap, making a cross so that the plastic hangs over all four edges (this will make it easy to lift the treats out when they"™re finished). Spray with cooking spray.
- In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add 2 bags of marshmallows and stir until melted and smooth. Mix in the instant coffee and salt. Remove the pot from heat.
- Using a lightly greased spoon or silicone spatula, fold in all of the cereal. Stir in the peanuts, chocolate chips, and 1Â½ bags of marshmallows, working quickly to distribute.
- Pour mixture into the cake pan and press into an even layer (a flexible plastic dough scraper, or lightly greased hands work well). Scatter the remaining Â½ bag of marshmallows on top and press down so they stick.
- Let cool completely. Lift the treats out of the pan using the overhanging plastic wrap, and cut into squares. Enjoy!
