I am a little obsessed with cinnamon chips lately. I think these are the best thing since.....well chocolate chips! I've been wanting to make rice krispy treats for an afterschool snack and I wanted to do something a little different. My kids really love these cinnamon chips too. These came out AMAZING! Just enough, crunch, just enough cinnamon, just enough marshmallow. You can't get much better than this.
1 - 10 oz bag of marshamllows
3 tablespoons margarine
pinch of salt
3 cups rice krispy cereal
3 cups cinnamon toast crunch cereal
1 cup cinnamon chips
non-stick cooking spray
In a large bowl combine rice krispy cereal, cinnamon toast crunch cereal and cinnamon chips and set aside. Spray a large pasta pot with non-stick cooking spray. Melt 3 tablespoons of margarine on med-high heat in pot. Add marshamallows and stir constantly until marhsmallows are completely melted. Add a small pinch of salt to marshmallows, mix to combine. Remove pot from heat and add in rice krispy cereal, cinnamon toast crunch and cinnamon chips into the melted marshmallows. Stir quickly to combine all the cereal, cinnamon chips and marshmallows. The cinnamon chips with start to melt which is what you want. Transfer mixture directly into a 8x8 baking dish that is generously coated with non-stick cooking spray. Spray you hand with non-stick cooking spray and press mixture firmly down into baking dish. Put some pressure with your hands to get it nice and flat and compact into pan. Let cool completely before cutting.
