Today Jocelyn from Inside BruCrew Life is here to share a treat with you. Jocelyn is my blogger BFF. If you haven’t had a chance to read about her, you MUST. If you are a friend of mine, then you will love the treats Jocelyn makes. I mean come on, did you see the picture above????

Okay…take it away Jocelyn, I have some drinks with umbrellas to enjoy….

Hi, Shugary Sweets readers. Jocelyn from BruCrew Life here.

I am so excited to be posting on Aimee’s blog today!! Aimee is pretty much my best bloggy BFF!

We are like twins separated at birth. It is crazy how many things we have in common with each other, often sharing similar recipes and don’t know it until we post on the same day.

Psychic? I think so!!!

Having a best blog friend is great for so many reasons.

We can count on each other for real comments, answers back to emails, and honest answers to life and blog questions. But I think I love her most for how many sugar laden treats she makes…

We have the same baking addiction!

One thing I know about Aimee is how much she loves homemade rice krispie treats. Just a peek through her archives and you’ll see all the delicious flavors!

Today I have some fun rice krispie treats to share with you.

I decided to include a few more of Aimee’s favorite things in these treats, just to make it a little more personal.

They have coffee and coconut mixed in with all the marshmallows.

That makes these pretty much the best rice krispie treat evah!!!

What’s that? You don’t like coconut? I guess you could leave it out, but then you are missing out on the experience.

They are truly awesome!

My youngest even ate some and said that he really liked them, and he doesn’t even like coconut at all.

So if the 8 year old can handle it, so can you!!! Thank you so much Aimee for having me visit your blog.

I loved sharing a specially made treat for you and your readers!

How to Make Almond Joy Rice Krispie Treats

In a large saucepan, melt coconut oil. You can substitute butter if you prefer.

Add in the instant coffee granules and heat until dissolved, stirring constantly. Add in one bag of mini marshmallows and stir until melted. Remove from heat.

Combine the chocolate krispie cereal with the mixture and stir until coated.

Add in shredded coconut and extra mini marshmallows. If you can find the Almond Joy pieces, add those too! You can also use Almond M&M’s or chopped up Almond Joy candy!

Spoon into a buttered (or parchment paper lined) 13×9-inch baking dish. Press gently into the pan. Add extra candies on top. Allow to set for about one hour, cut and enjoy.

Store covered loosely at room temperature.

Tips for Perfect Rice Krispie Treats

The extra marshmallows are important for giving this treat that extra bit of gooey texture.

Speaking of texture, don’t press the krispies too hard into the pan or you will result in having HARD krispie treats.

Also, in regards to the marshmallow, the fresher the better!
