Cinnamon Krispie Treats

Happy Friday everybody…  I am so looking forward to this weekend because we are supposed to have some beautiful spring weather 🙂  YAY!!

I’m also SO excited to have Liz from A Sweet Baker here to share with us- have you been over to visit Liz?  You simply must!  She has such a lovely blog that is full of mouth-watering dessert recipes…


Hi again!  It’s Liz fron A Sweet Baker 

If you follow my blog you know that I’m a big fan of Cinnamon Buns and my family often has them on Saturday mornings. I was craving something with cinnamon in it but I didn’t have time to make homemade cinnamon buns. I decided on these Cinnamon Krispie Treats because my husband is a huge fan of the vanilla flavored ones and I knew I could whip these up pretty quick.


Cinnamon Krispie Treats

I once tried using the cinnamon-flavored marshmallows but I found they lacked in flavor and the treats turned out hard and crumbly. I could picture how good they might be if I could recreate the recipe myself so I attempted once more. I’m so glad I did because these were so tasty, chewy and had the perfect amount of cinnamon. My husband and kids gave them two thumbs up and I’m pretty sure I’ll be making them again!

Cinnamon Krispie Treats
Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • For the Krispie Treats:
  • 5 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 bag marshmallows
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. molasses
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 packet of Duncan Hines Cinnamon Roll Frosting Creations
  • 6 cups Rice Krispie cereal
  • For the frosting:
  • 1/2 container of Duncan Hines Whipped Frosting
  • 1/2 packet of Duncan Hines Cinnamon Roll Frosting Creations


  1. Krispie Treat Directions:
  2. In a large pot, with the stove on low heat, melt butter and marshmallows until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, and the 1/2 packet of Frosting Creations.
  4. Stir until well combined.
  5. Turn off stove and add Rice Krispie cereal and stir until well incorporated and all the cereal is covered.
  6. Pour mixture onto parchment paper and form into a big circle, about 2 inches thick.
  7. Smooth out mixture with the back of a spoon that's been coated in butter.
  8. Using a round cookie cutter that's been greased with butter, cut out individual treats.
  9. You can also use your hands to form the treats, which I did, but make sure your hands have some butter on them to avoid the treats sticking to your hands.
  10. Frosting Directions:
  11. combine 1/2 container of Whipped Frosting and the remaining 1/2 packet of Cinnamon Roll Frosting Creation and mix well.
  12. Using a small drop flower tip, pipe on frosting to each Cinnamon Krispie Treat.
  13. Enjoy!
  14. * Store treats in an airtight container to keep moist and chewy.
