How To Make Cinnamon Rice Krispie Treats
This tasty twist to Rice Krispie Treats mimics the cinnamon rolls feels, complete with cinnamon-dusted cream cheese frosting!
Butter a 9×13-inch dish. Set aside.
Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir in salt, molasses, and cinnamon. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until marshmallows have completely melted.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Fold in Rice Krispies Cereal, stirring until evenly coated.
Pour Rice Krispie Treat mixture into buttered dish. Spread mixture evenly into pan with a buttered spatula.
Allow to cool several minutes, then cut while still slightly warm. Round edges of cut squares by cupping hands around the edges and gently pressing.
Allow to cool completely then pipe cream cheese frosting over tops of Rice Krispie Treats. Optional, dust the tops lightly with cinnamon.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, whip together butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Stir in vanilla. Slowly add in powdered sugar and mix until smooth and fluffy.
Alternately, for a simpler method, simply spread Rice Krispie Treats mixture into a buttered pan after folding in cereal. Allow them to cool then spread cream cheese frosting evenly over top with a butter knife or an icing spatula. Cut into squares.
