Snickerdoodle Krispie Treats with Cinnamon Frosting

As we continue to celebrate Marshmallow Week here at Made By Mike, I’d like to reintroduce you to one of my original recipes from back in February of last year. The sweet and crunchy Snickerdoodle Krispie Treat.

Rice Krispie Treats, great just as they are. Even better when the recipe is tweaked just a tad. I’ve been trying to get my head around creating a rice krispie treat with a snickerdoodle-like flavor. You see, the soft and chewy snickerdoodle just might be my favorite cookie. If you’re looking for a great recipe, check out the one in Martha Stewart’s Cookie cookbook. They are cheered by most of my friends.

But back to the task at hand, the Snickerdoodle Krispie Treat. I started with the blank canvas of the traditional rice krispie treat recipe that’s right on the box. For my twist, I added a teaspoon of cinnamon and a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I love that you can see the little flecks of cinnamon in each treat. Alone, the treats were terrific. I decided to take them up another notch by adding a cinnamon-sugar frosting. You’re welcome to leave it off, I wouldn’t. It’s pretty tasty on its own.

Enjoy this made by mike original recipe. I’m busy trying to think up my next twist on the humble rice krispie treat. Stay tuned and please feel free to drop some suggestions in the comments section.

    Sweet Jesus, these look amazing. I haven’t had sweets in a very long time. That has to be some kind of crime somewhere. We are having a bbq this Saturday..this would be a fun and interesting twist on rice-krispy treats. Best of all, children will be there so I have an excuse to make them!
