Cinnabon Fudge


Cinnabon Fudge: delicious, creamy cinnamon sugar fudge!

I am so excited to share this recipe with all of you today!

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.


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). Once you know how to make fudge, you can make almost any flavor!
I think I can even eat these for breakfast. Right? They are Cinnabon flavored….

Cinnabon Fudge: delicious, creamy cinnamon sugar fudge!


For the Fudge:

  • 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!

    1. I find them at Meijer in the breakfast aisle…but some grocery stores carry them near the cinnamon. You can just substitute a cinnamon/sugar blend if you can’t find them 🙂

  1. Your recipe has been featured here >
    Happy Saturday and keep on desserting!

  2. Trying to find the sprinkles in Salt Lake City Utah so I can make these delicious treats – HELP! If anyone in the Wasatch Front knows where to get them locally, please advise.

    1. 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.

  3. This looks incredible! We don’t have a Cinnabon on the west coast of Canada, but I’ll have to find a way to make this recipe work. Can’t wait to try this!

  4. 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:/)

  5. 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.

  6. cant wait to try this fudge, although it doesnt do us a whole lot of good, if WE dont have the cinnabom goodies. Would also like to have the recipe for your root beer fudge, if I may? Thank you, Crystalyn

    1. Haha, so true! You can buy the Cinnabon products in many grocery stores now!!! My root beer fudge recipe is here:

  7. Hi there,

    1. The contest was sent by email to select bloggers. I believe it ends on August 15, at which time they will announce a winner…keep fingers crossed!

  18. not a big fudge fan – but cinnamon and sugar are speaking my language. Need to find those products ASAP

  19. I was looking for a new fudge recipe and what could possibly be better than Cinnabon?
    Do you know what stores are carrying these great products?

  20. What an interesting recipe. I love cinnamon – I’ll have to try this around the holidays! Visiting from Trick or Treat linkup 🙂

  21. OMG! Just ran across this site while looking for something else and boy am I glad I came…I’m a big fan of anything cinnamon and cannot wait to try the syrup and sprinkles. Will they be selling at grocery stores or at their Cinnabon locations?

  22. Your site is awesome and I love all things cinnamon! I would love if you could link up to Thursday Food Fest at I open Wed at 7pm. I hope to see you! Sarah

  23. Um…do I sit in it or do I eat it?! I know! I’ll sit in it and eat it! Those are Jim Gaffigan’s words for Cinnabons and boy was he right. But he’s never seen this, oh my gosh, running to store right now….pick me please!!

  24. i was lucky enough to get a sample when your hubby brought it into the office and wowzers was it ever yummy. i’m going to have to be on the lookout for that syrup now.

  25. Aimee! This fudge looks absolutely delicious. I am a sucker for fudge lately and am scouring the internet and cookbooks to come up with new ideas. Saving this one for sure, Who doesn’t love cinnabon?!

  26. 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.

    1. Look at me talking to myself. haha I forgot to mention I liked their facebook page and posted there about your recipe. 😉

      Good luck in the contest.

  27. Wow, Aimee this is amazing. I think I might die and go to heaven if I eat it. And I need that syrup!

  28. Double YUM! Triple YUM! this fudge I am sure is amazing.. Love Cinnabons and now in a fudge… Oh! I have died and gone to heaven.. Now I have to figure out where to the cinnabon syrup and sprinkle toppings… Love your presentation too…

  29. Oh my word!!! You have out done any fudge recipe I’ve ever seen. So pretty…. and seriously cinnabon addict right here!

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

  31. 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.

    1. 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!!

    2. 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!

  32. 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!

  33. Saw your meetup with Jocelyn and wow, what fun! You two are both gorgeous 🙂

    This fudge? Gorgeous. I love Cinnabons!

  34. Holy cow! Fudge is my number one weakness! Then cinnamon rolls. This is awesome!!! I think you got the mother load. These look amazing. Just the thought of Cinnabon makes my mouth water. Good lick! I hope you win!

  35. Ok, this seriously was AMAZING, Aimee!!! I wanted to cry when I ate my last piece from the bag that you sent home with me. But now I have the recipe:-) Yay!!!! Just means I need to find where to buy the Cinnabon goodness now!!!! Until then I am going to stare googly eyed over the awesome picture you captured!!! LOVE!!!!
