Cinnabon Fudge

Cinnabon Fudge: delicious, creamy cinnamon sugar fudge!

I am so excited to share this recipe with all of you today! I recently was invited to be part of a “Cinnabon Creations Sweepstakes.”

What is that, you might ask? Basically, Cinnabon sent me some free products to come up with my own recipe creation, and share it with all of you!
But before I get to the recipe, let me start by saying the Cinnabon products I was sent are amazing. The first item is a jar of Cinnabon Sprinkle topping. It’s a cinnamon-sugar mix, that is so finely ground it leaves no gritty texture behind. (very important for texture picky children)

They also sent me a bottle of Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll syrup. O.M.G. this stuff is like crack. As Elf would say, “it’s part of the 4 major food groups. Candy, Candy Corn, Candy Canes and Syrup.” And it tastes like a cinnamon roll. Weird, but delicious.

Here’s the exciting part of this post (besides the awesome recipe below, of course): If I win this sweepstakes, YOU all have an opportunity to win as well, as my readers. The grand prize winner in this contest will receive a one year supply of Ciinnabon Syrup and Sprinkles, an American Express gift card for $200 (think of all the fudge I can make with that money!!!), and they get to choose ONE blog reader (that’s YOU) to win a year’s supply as well. 

***Update: Sadly, I did not win the grand prize. But I will continue to enjoy Cinnabon products. YUM!***
So, on to my recipe. 

I love making fudge. Look at my recipe page, there are quite a few choices in my box. I used my root beer fudge as the base of this recipe (without the rootbeer of course). 

I think I can even eat these for breakfast. Right? They are Cinnabon flavored….

Cinnabon Fudge

Prep Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 3 dozen large pieces


    For the Fudge Base:
  • 2 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp Cinnabon Sprinkle topping, divided
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cup white chocolate morsels
  • 7oz jar marshmallow cream
  • For the Drizzle:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Cinnabon flavored syrup
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Cinnabon Sprinkle topping


  1. Line a 13x9 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat granulated sugar, butter, salt, 1/4 cup Cinnabon sprinkle and heavy cream until combined. Bring to a rolling boil and stir continuously for 4 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in white chocolate morsels, marshmallow cream and 2 Tbsp Cinnabon sprinkles. Whisk vigorously until smooth. Be patient, this may take a couple minutes. Works best with an electric mixer.
  4. Pour fudge into prepared pan and refrigerate 3 hours, until hardened.
  5. Remove from pan, remove parchment paper and lay fudge on a cutting board. Cut into circles using a 1 1/2 inch circle cookie cutter, or cut into small bite sized pieces.
  6. To make drizzle, whisk together the powdered sugar, Cinnabon syrup and heavy cream until smooth. Pour into a ziploc bag, and snip a tiny piece off the corner. Drizzle over cut pieces of fudge. Sprinkle immediately with remaining 1 tsp of Cinnabon sprinkles. Place fudge back in refrigerator until icing hardens, about 15 minutes. Enjoy cold! Keep fudge stored in airtight container in refrigerator. ENJOY!


**may substitute a cinnamon/sugar blend if you can't find Cinnabon products

Disclosure: I received the Cinnabon products used and was entered for a chance to win a Cinnabon Creations prize package in exchange for this post. No monetary exchange took place. All opinions are my own.

    OMG, CONGRATS AIMEE! That’s SO exciting–I’m totally stoked for you for being invited and obviously, for being invited for something so deliciously awesome! Cinnabon syrup? Yeah, I don’t think that’d end up on my pancakes or waffles (more like straight from the bottle-into my mouth). This fudge looks rad and I love the cross hatch “icing” on top! You’re so creative!

    Hi Aimee,
    I’m from the UK and love reading your post – we don’t have Cinnabon over here but it sounds delicious!
    I’m up to round 8(!!) of trying to perfect my own traditional vanilla fudge (read about my trials so far at and think one more try with a little more beating might be enough to get it to set, but all tips gratefully received.
    Good luck in the competition.
    Thanks to you and your readers for the ongoing inspiraton.

      Hey Adam, Im from UK too. What would we use in place of Cinnabon? never seen it in the shops. I wonder if Harrods stock it??? Now theres a thought!!

    • posted Jul 31, 2012 at 10:22 pm

      I suppose you could try substituting a cinnamon/sugar blend (maybe using caster sugar since it’s very fine) for the Cinnabon Sprinkles. You could use regular syrup instead of the Cinnabon syrup, but you would lose a little of that cinnamon taste, so add in a pinch of extra cinnamon to your icing. Won’t taste 100% the same, but would be a great substitute!

    This fudge looks absolutely AMAZING!!! I can practically taste the cinnamon! Great products too! I have to try Cinnamon Syrup! Good luck!

    Oh my gosh! THIS looks just amazing. I read/stalk the Inside BruCrew Life blog and saw the post about your awesome time meeting each other. I’m positive you two had a blast that day. I have to admit being totally jealous that you live close to Jungle Jim’s!! I have wanted to drive there for over 15yrs now after a friend told me about it. She and I ‘met’ online also and lives in PA but she knew of that store from another friend. We always said we should meet up there but instead it was a meeting in MI since it was halfway.

    Anyway, I make lots of yummy fudge almost every single year during the holidays. I’ve been doing it for about 20 yrs now and only missed the past two yrs because of health problems but everyone looks forward to my goodies. This recipe looks awesome. Thank you.

    I prefer chocolate fudge to white fudge. I wonder if you made regular chocolate fudge, then swirled in some of the Cinnabon sauce through it at the end? I bet that would taste great, too.

    I was wondering,for those especially that live in the UK,if you can’t find the Cinnabon syrup but have a Starbucks.Not sure if Starbucks is in the UK? Anyways I think that the cinnamon Dolce’ syrup Starbucks has would make a great substitution? For the sugar,it’s pretty easy to find a sugar / cinnamon sprinkle mix in the coffee or baking section of the store or just mix some up:/)

      Using a combo of cinnamon/ sugar will work. And any syrup can be used too! ENJOY.

      If you can’t find them no worries. Just make up your own by mixing granulated sugar with cinnamon. About 1 cup sugar to 2 tsp cinnamon.
