- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

- Bake for about 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. To make icing, combine butter, confectioners' sugar and cold coffee in a medium bowl; beat until smooth. Frost bars while warm, but allow them to cool before cutting.
