Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats


My family absolutely loves anything cinnamon flavored, so when they were craving cinnamon rolls the other day and I didn't have the time (or energy) to make a batch, these were the perfect solution! Made in minutes, each bite tastes exactly like a warm, gooey cinnamon roll! 

Cinnamon Roll  Rice Krispie Treats
 
4 tablespoons butter 
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk

1. In a large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted, then remove from heat.
2. Add cinnamon and vanilla extract, stir, and then add cereal to marshmallow mixture and stir until well coated.
3. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into 13 x 9 pan coated with cooking spray.

4. Cool completely and then cut into squares or use a biscuit cutter or circle cookie cutter and cut into circles.
5. Whisk together powdered sugar and milk for the icing and drizzle on the rice krispy treats. Allow icing to set before serving and enjoy immediately.

*If you don't plan to serve right away, store in an airtight container for up to three days and wait to add icing before serving. Also, this recipe doubles very easily! You can still put the doubled recipe in a 13x9 pan and just have thicker treats, or you can use a larger, rimmed baking sheet to make them thinner. Enjoy!*
