Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats

Have you noticed all the fun different flavors of marshmallows that have been around lately? This summer I was buying strawberry, chocolate, caramel, swirl, and coconut. All kinds of deliciousness. This Fall there is a new crop of marshmallow flavors. So far I have seen pumpkin, chocolate mint and my personal favorite cinnamon bun.

So what do you do with a bag of cinnamon marshmallows? Make Rice Krispie treats of course!  Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats are a dressed up version of an old favorite.

I change up the traditional Rice Krispie recipe you find on the back of the box of cereal. It usually calls for 1/4 cup of butter but if a 1/4 cup is good then 1/2 cup is better! I think it makes for a moister, not quite so dry treat.

I do everything else the same – one bag of marshmallows and about 6 cups of cereal. I like my treats a bit gooey.

I did dress these treats up just a little bit. I added 1/2 cup of Bit of Brickle (can be found in the chocolate chip area). They are small toffee pieces and I mixed them in with the marshmallow and cereal and then I sprinkled about another 1/3 cup over the top of the treats once they were in the pan. Another thing I do is I don’t smash the mixture down into the pan. I like my treats a little lighter and airer.

Then the final step is a drizzle of melted milk chocolate chips. Lots of fun flavors – cinnamon, chocolate and toffee – all in one place.

Now if you can’t find the Cinnamon Bun marshmallows by Kraft, (I found them at Winco) you could add in about 1 tsp of cinnamon into your melted butter and marshmallow mixture.
