CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH BARS — Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal combined with butter and marshmallows for a sweet and crunchy treat.
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! ~ Monique
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!
