Mocha Cappuccino Munch

My dear hubby has been out of town for work all week, and I miss him tremendously. Thankfully, he is coming home tonight so I whipped up this yummy treat as a surprise. He loves mocha cappuccinos and chocolate so this is the perfect combo for him.

Blessings my dear friends! You are deeply loved and prayed for by your Heavenly Father.

Mocha Cappuccino Munch
1 box Rice Chex
1 Tablespoon instant coffee
2 Tablespoons very hot water
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1/4 cup shortening
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup Jif Chocolate Silk Peanut Butter
2 cups powdered confectioners sugar
1 bag chocolate covered espresso beans or mini espresso cups (found at Walmart or the Dollar Tree)

In a microwaveable safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips, chocolate silk peanut butter, and butter. Microwave for 1 minute and stir. Stir ground coffee into the two tablespoons hot water until the coffee is dissolved. Add the coffee and the shortening to the chocolate mixture and microwave for 45 seconds more. Stir until smooth. Place the rice Chex in a large bowl. Pour the chocolate mixture over the top and gently stir until all cereal is coated. Place the powdered sugar in a large plastic bag or paper sack.  Spoon the Chex mix into the bag. Shake until everything is coated. Spread onto a wax paper-lined cookie sheet and let set. Sprinkle the chocolate covered espresso beans over the mix. Spoon into storage containers. Store in a sealed container for 7 days. Enjoy!

  1. This sounds delicious, but I have a question ..... do you really mean ground coffee, which won't dissolve in the water .... or instant coffee which will???

    1. Hi there :-). Instant coffee :-). I should have said that. I will edit the recipe. You can also use 1 teaspoon espresso powder instead of the coffee and water.
