Frosted Molasses Bars

Frosted Molasses Bars

Our Cold Brew Coffee Frosted Molasses Bars made with raisins and cinnamon are a unique spin on the traditional American recipe. We simply added our cold brew coffee recipe to the mix.

What’s that saying about moving as slow as molasses? Well, these bars will be flying off the counter as soon as you make them. No slowpokes here!

Be sure to use specialty coffee grind and quality filters for a tasty coffee concentrate. Add it to the recipe below and enjoy!
