Oh my goodness, these are dangerous. Run! As fast as you can! To the store! You need to make these. All the gingerbread greatness is intoxicating! A layer of gingerbread oreo truffle on the bottom, a layer of gingerbread rice krispies in the middle, topped off with gingerbread buttercream then sprinkled with white chocolate, butterscotch and cinnamon chips.
Oh and by the way – cinnamon chips? Yes. Cinnamon chips! Who knew such awesomeness existed! I think they are new and they are at Walmart (as are the other gingerbread flavored ingredients in these). They are awesome. When I saw them, I immediately wanted to try them. I love cinnamon, but wasn’t sure how I’d like an all cinnamon chip. I got in the car to drive home after buying them and couldn’t take the suspense. It was less than a minute before they were open.
To be honest, I was afraid when I first smelled them. It reminded me of hot tamales. I got nervous. Spicy hot wouldn’t go well with my gingerbread plans. Fortunately, they don’t taste like hot tamales. At least not really. I’m not sure if I feel like I tasted hot tamaleyness because of the smell or if there really is a slight hot taste to them. But either way, they are tasty. And they joined the chips on top of my bars.
But this isn’t about cinnamon chips. Or is it?
No, it’s about gingerbread. And it is plentiful in these bars. There is no doubt in my mind that if you like gingerbread, you will love these. The combo of the softer truffle and icing with the crunch of the krispies is heaven in a dish.
So go and make them. You can thank me later.
