Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats
Take your Rice Krispie Treats up a notch by adding Cinnamon Roll flavor! You can’t keep your hands off these.
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. Keeping the treats chewy is a key in knowing how to make rice krispie treats!
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!
