Cappuccino Bars

I've been wanting to make these bars for awhile now and finally got around to it today. I love anything with graham crackers or marshmallows and this recipe has both AND chocolate---so it had to be good! The candy-like bars have a slight coffee flavor and taste great straight from the fridge (I love cold chocolate!).

Adapted from Cookies Galorie
Makes 12 bars

For Bars:
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 cup hot strong black coffe
10 ounces graham crackers
1/2 cup mini-marshmallows
8 ounces semisweet chocolate
1/4 cup butter

For Topping:
8 ounces low fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons butter
1/8 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup splenda granular or confectioners' sugar
Coca powder for dusting

Lightly grease an 8x8 inch square pan. Soak the raisins in the hot coffee for 5 minutes. Break the graham crackers into small pieces and place in a bowl with the marshmallows. Add in the coffee and soaked raisins.

Melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave or in a bowl set over hot water. Add to the graham cracker mixture and stir until well coated. Press the mixture into the prepared pan and chill in the fridge until firm.

To make the topping, cream the butter, splenda, and cream cheese in a bowl until well mixed. Stir on the vanilla extract. Spread over graham cracker base. Lightly dust top with cocoa powder and store covered in the fridge.
