Slow Cooker Caramel Mocha Crunch Bars

      

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 83)

I used my slow cooker to melt together the caramel mixture for these incredibly rich and delicious slow cooker caramel mocha crunch bars, which are essentially a sophisticated variation of everybody’s favorite Rice Krispie Treats.

The slow cooker is now my go-to way to melt caramel. I’m much less likely to scorch it.

And clean up is a lot easier too.

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons instant espresso or coffee powder
  • 7 cups cocoa-flavored crisp rice cereal

  3. Cover and cook on HIGH for 1 to 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes or so, until melted, shiny and smooth.
  4. While the caramel is cooking, lightly spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray and set it aside.
  5. Add the cereal and stir until well coated. Add ½ cup of the chocolate chips and stir until combined.
