Our new neighborhood has a slightly older feel to it. Okay, I’ll just be honest, it is old. The houses are older and the people are older. Our young ;), loud, energetic family has disrupted the quiet, peaceful feel of the place. The houses are close together and everyone leaves their windows open, so the screaming tantrums my two year old occasionally throws, and the boys’ loud banter in the back yard is heard by the neighbors. (And by banter I mean the ninja training, monster fighting, and chasing bad guys on bikes). I don’t think they appreciate it, find it cute, refreshing, or humorous. At all.
We haven’t met most of our neighbors yet, but I’m thinking I’ll have my boys deliver treats with clean, smiling faces in hopes of a peace offering??
You think they’ll appreciate Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats from the two little boys waking them up at the crack of dawn? Maybe a fruit cake or pie, or oatmeal cookies would go over better? Kidding.
But these Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispie Treats are insanely good!
We made them over the weekend and they really do taste like cinnamon rolls. Just a crispy, gooey marshmallow kind of cinnamon roll. And all you have to do is add a little brown sugar and cinnamon to the marshmallow/butter mix. Stir in your rice krispie cereal, press into a pan, and top with a thick drizzle of cream cheese glaze!!
- 1 (10 oz) bag marshmallows,
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tbs brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 1/2 cups rice krispie cereal
- 2 oz cream cheese, soft
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 2-3 tbs milk
- In a large saucepan melt marshmallows, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon together over medium-low heat (stirring continuously). Once completely melted remove from heat and whisk in vanilla. gently fold in rice krispie cereal.
- Press into a lightly greased 9 X13 inch pan. Drizzle with cream cheese glaze!
- Whisk cream cheese until creamy. Gently whisk in powdered sugar and vanilla. Whisk in milk. Add more or less milk to get a glaze consistency that you can drizzle. If glaze seems too thick, heat in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.
