Did this just blow your mind? I thought so. Allow me to explain.First, let me give credit where credit is due. I saw this brilliant Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispies Treat concept on the Cooking Classy blog, and I had to give it a whirl for myself. Instead of just adding a cinnamon kick to the classic Rice Krispies Treat recipe, I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch for the cereal to make my Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats.Similar to the Rice Krispies Treat recipe, this one calls for cereal and marshmallows and it has a little extra kick with cinnamon, molasses and vanilla extract. All you have to do is mix it all together for a cinnamon-y taste that is out of this world!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Apple Slice
This Cinnamon Toast Crunch Apple Slice is my version of the midwest staple of Apple Slice. But uses Cinnamon Toast Crunch instead of Corn Flakes.
Apple pie is one of my ultimate comfort foods.
I think it is for a lot of people.
It’s also one of the few desserts that I really can’t stop eating.
So I try not to make it that often.
The way that I love to eat it most is in the form of Apple Slice.
It’s called different things different places.
But its apple pie that is made in a sheet pan instead of a pie pan.
The other difference is that it usually has crushed Cornflake cereal in it as well.
It’s also GIANT and you see it mostly at potlucks when baking for a crowd.
Since it is so large, I put off making it until now.
That is when I realized that I could just make a smaller version of it so that I don’t eat a whole sheet pan of it.
That and I only had 5 apples and the average apple slice takes about 10.
Like I said above traditional Apple Slice has crushed cornflakes.
I’m not sure why but sure, why not?
But since I rarely do traditional and it made more sense to me I used Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
I mean I’m already using cinnamon in the pie, why not use a cinnamon cereal?
I definitely like my Cinnamon Toast Crunch Apple Slice version better than the original.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars
Cinnamon Toast Crunch has always been one of my favorite sugar-laden cereals. All of my kids love it too! So it’s no surprise that these Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars were a huge hit at my house!
I pretty much love any kind of marshmallow coated cereal bar, so I’m surprised it too me this long to think of using Cinnamon Toast Crunch to create a delicious, gooey confection.
What a significantly yummier snack than Rice Krispy Treats. I could probably eat about 3 of these in one sitting!
And let’s be honest, you really can’t go wrong with a three ingredient treat that’s ready in about 10 minutes.
Next time, I’m going to double the batch, because my husband and kids devoured these almost as fast as I made them. I can’t blame them. These crunchy, chewy, cinnamon and sugar flavored bars are pretty irresistible!
In fact, I’m going to start keeping the ingredients on hand just so I can whip up a batch of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars at a moment’s notice.
If you’ve ever made Rice Krispies Treats, this is basically the same process. Except I like this version even better. And that’s really saying something, because I love Rice Krispies Treats!
You do have to stir this cinnamon toast version a bit more carefully, so you don’t break up the cereal.
I also like to butter a sheet of waxed paper and use that to press the marshmallow coated cereal into the pan–which should also be buttered.
Butter, marshmallows and Cinnamon Toast Crunch–it’s pretty much a match made in heaven! Trust me, you need to make these!
Just be sure you have someone to share with, otherwise you’ll be tempted to eat the entire pan yourself!
Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 3/4 cup white granulated sugar
- 1/4 light brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs, room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used Rodelle Baker's Extract)
- 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (I used Rodelle Ceylon Cinnamon)
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1-1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 2 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch crumbs (finely crushed)
Preheat oven to 350-degrees and line three cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, affixed with the paddle attachment, add the butter and beat on medium speed until creamy. Add the white sugar and brown sugar to the butter and mix until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing the first egg in completely before adding the second egg. Add the vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix until combined.
Change the mixer to low speed and add the flour, baking powder, cornstarch and Cinnamon Toast Crunch crumbs. Mix until barely combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer and use a rubber scraper to ensure ingredients are completely incorporated.
Use a standard sized cookie scoop (tablespoon and a half approximately) to scoop cookie dough balls onto prepared cookie sheets. Leave a few inches in between cookie dough balls. Bake in 350-degree oven for 8-9 minutes. Option to add CTC crumbs on top of cookies as soon as you pull them from the oven. Let cookies set on the cookie sheet for 5-minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling.
I sprinkled even more CTC crumbs on top of my cookies as soon as I pulled them from the oven. Totally optional….and totally messy. But it adds a nice crunchy texture!
So thick and soft and full of cinnamon flavor! Breakfast cookies anyone?!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats
Everyone likes Rice Krispies Treats. They are the original cereal dessert that is super easy to make and that kids love to eat. In the past I've made several gourmet Rice Krispies Treats that have used different types of baking chips, baking flavors, or marshmallow flavors. I enjoy taking a classic sweet treat and giving it an updated taste.
A few weeks ago I got a few boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I'm not sure you know but I don't really eat cereal. It's never been my thing. When I do eat cereal it's usually Cheerios because I'm not big on the sugary cereal. However, I do like to put Cinnamon Toast Crunch on top of vanilla ice cream in the summer so I had some on hand.
I wanted to make a treat for the kids at school and I thought it would be fun to make them Cinnamon Toast Crunch Treats since most of them love that cereal for breakfast. In addition to the cereal and the marshmallow I added in some cinnamon chips and white chocolate chips for flavor. It took me about 10 minutes total to make these.
The resulting treats were super yummy, especially if you like cinnamon. They are gooey, spiced with cinnamon, and have sweetness from the white chocolate chips. The kids went crazy over them! I think they liked them better then the traditional Rice Krispies treats!
