  1. 1. Place cereal in a large bowl and set aside.
  2. 2. Place chocolate melts (or chocolate chips and peanut butter) in a microwave proof bowl and set aside.
  3. 3. Put brownie mix and instant coffee in a large plastic bag and shake to combine evenly. (Add more of less coffee depending on how strong you want it.) To smash my granules, I put them in a small ziplock bag and used the bottom of a cup to crunch them up.
