Mocha Reese's Frappe

I want to share one of my coffee concoctions. It is cheaper and convenient to brew your own coffee at home. There is no need to step out of your comfy home. Here is a drink that will perk you up and satisfy your sweet tooth. 


2 cups Freshly brewed strong coffee or 4 oz. Espresso, cooled slightly
3 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
1/4 cup Fresh Milk
9 pieces Reese's mini cups (reserved 3 pieces for toppings)
1 cup crushed ice
3/4 cup chilled whipping cream (can use all-purpose cream)
1 Tablespoon Sugar (optional)


  1. Whip the cream until stiff. Set aside.
  2. In a blender, mix the coffee, milk, vanilla ice cream, crushed ice, 6 pieces of Reese's mini cups and sugar until you reached the desired consistency. 
  3. Pour the mixture into tall glasses. Top with whipped cream and bits of Reese's mini cups. 

This recipe has three servings. 

Marshmallow Bars

Another recipe that is easy to do. It uses three ingredients only. This can serves as baon or snack or dessert for kids & adults. It is a healthier alternative to processed chips. I prepare these bars whenever the craving for a crunchy but healthy snack hits me. Since I'm allergic to most of the chips (made of corn & wheat) available in the market, I usually rely on my cooking/baking to satiate my appetite. 


2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
3 Cups Marshmallows (preferably the white ones)
2 Cups Rice Crispies


  1. Line a 8 x 8 square pan with wax paper or grease the pan with butter. 
  2. In a thick-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter first using low heat. Then add the marshmallows.
  3. Stir continuously until the marshmallows are melted. 
  4. Pour this mixture into the bowl of rice crispies and mix well. 
  5. Spread the said mixture into the greased/lined square pan. 
  6. Let it cool for 4 hours before slicing the bars. 

To add more crunch and texture to the snack, you may add 1/4 cup of crushed peanuts or cashew to the mixture. Enjoy!
