Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats

Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats are the latest quick treat in my house. They are way faster to make than cinnamon rolls, and who doesn't love the crunch of a good Rice Krispie Treat? These are a must try. Perfect for summer time because you don't have to turn on the oven and heat up the house. 

Use store bought frosting, or make your own. Shape your Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats into "rolls" like I did, or leave in the pan if you are in a hurry. Either way, you are sure to enjoy!

Recipe Source: Cooking Classy
Makes 15 Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats

1/4 cup butter
1/8 tsp salt
2tsp molasses
2 tsp cinnamon
1 - 10.5oz bag of mini marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla
6 cups Rice Krispies
Cream Cheese Frosting

-Butter or grease a 9x13 pan
-Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium/low heat
-Stir in salt, molasses, and cinnamon
-Add marshmallows and stir constantly until they have melted.
-Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
-Fold in the Rice Krispies. Stir until all are coated.
-Pour the mixture into the greased 9x13 pan.
-Spread mixture evenly as you would for regular Rice Krispies Treats
-Let cool for 5 minutes or so.
-When the bars have cooled enough to handle, but still a bit warm, use a knife to cut
 into 15 pieces.
-Remove one warm treat and use your clean hands to gentle round the
 edges making a circle out of the Rice Krispie Treat to resemble a Cinnamon Roll.
-Continue with all treats until they are all round edged, flat topped, patties.
-Once they are completely cooled, swirl tops with cream cheese frosting.
 (I used store bought frosting and piped it out of the cut off corner of a Ziploc bag.)
-Store in an airtight container.

Quick Tip
If you are in a hurry, you can leave in the 9x13, spread the frosting over the top and call it a day.
