More About This Recipe
  • A sweet caffeine fix that's no-bake and delicious!

    Woo boy. I have a buzz going on over here! 

    I’m not much of a coffee drinker, which makes me sad, because I think drinking a hot cup of coffee sounds like the perfect start to a day. It makes me a little nuts though. I bounce around and then I get all shaky and then I crash.

    Every now and then I go for an iced coffee in the middle of the day though, just to perk me up. It usually has the same effect as above, but I don’t mind so much.

    I decided to bring that same perkiness to this little ol’ icebox cake by turning it into my favorite iced coffee drink – a caramel macchiato! This stuff is so good!

    You’ll start with a granola crust. I used Nature Valley™ Oats ‘N Honey Protein Granola. Whiz it around your food processor and make yourself some crumbs.

    After you’ve made the crust, you’ll spread on some espresso-spiked whipped topping and a layer of caramel sauce.

    Add another layer of granola, another layer of whipped topping, and then drizzle on a little caramel and chocolate syrup.

    Let it firm up for a few hours before serving!
