Okay, so maybe YOU can keep your hands off Rice Krispie Treats, but I cannot. I have zero willpower when it comes to those little homemade treats.

And don’t even try to give me one wrapped in a blue packaging…those are just gross. In my humble opinion of course. This blue twine is about all the packaging I need!

Today’s recipe uses Duncan Hines Frosting creations flavor packets. The Cinnamon Roll flavor. You could totally just add in some cinnamon sugar blend, but I think the packet is a little more concentrated somehow. It really has more of a cinnamon roll taste. But, either way is absolutely delicious.

You could add in a Bubble Gum flavor packet…wonder what that would taste like. I used the Bubble gum in these pretzel bites, and it really tastes like chewing gum. No kidding. Hmmm…ideas….

Anyways, back to THESE treats. One tip about making rice krispie treats is to NOT press your mixture too hard in the pan. They will end up being dry and crunchy, instead of chewy and delicious. Also, lining your pan with parchment paper is awesome. Keeps the pan clean, plus you can just lift it out and cut your squares! ENJOY!

I am obsessed with cinnamon roll flavor. This Cinnabon Fudge is soft and smooth and perfect for the cinnamon lover!

Cinnamon and breakfast go hand in hand. Especially in this Cinnabon Cinnamon Cake!!

    Oh I think I could eat a few dozen of these! It’s a little better than eating a cinnabon, right? 😉 heehee. I didn’t know they had a cinnamon roll flavor, but I’m adding it to my shopping list ASAP. 😀

    Killer RKT recipe, girl! Saw this in my feed and right away I knew it was yours! Your twist on RKTs in this recipe really is killer. Love cinnamon roll anything and I like that you provided options for peeps…the mix or cinnamon sugar. Definitely going to add your recipe to the round-up I’m diligently working on. Hopefully, to post on Friday. Thanks for sharing!

    Those packets are the answer to everything! Uh yes, RCT are addictive. As are cinnamon rolls. I can only imagine fast these would disappear!

    I was wondering can you make these without the glaze and would it still taste alright?
