Cinnamon Sugar White Chocolate Crunch Bars

These bars were born out of my love for cinnamon toast crunch cereal – hence the “crunch” in the name of this bar. I am a huge lover of that cereal eaten as such for breakfast, but I also love to eat it dry. I am so weird that I’ll actually look through the box for the pieces covered in the most cinnamon and sugar and eat those first. I have a serious sugar and cinnamon addiction problem.

That’s where these bars come in. They are filled with so much cinnamon and sugar it is delightfully sinful. When the hubs took a bite, his response was “Wow, these are sweet.” Perfect I say!! :)

If you like cinnamon toast crunch, you will love these. If you have a thing for cinnamon and sugar (and let’s be honest – who doesn’t?), you will love these. If you don’t like sweet things, these are not for you. But then you are totally in the wrong place because my favorite things are sweet things.

And on top of all this cinnamon and sugary awesomeness, they are so easy to make. You just crush up the cinnamon toast crunch – which I used my handy food processor for – then add more cinnamon and sugar. Add some melted butter and mix it all together. Most of the hard work is done at this point.

Then you press that mixture evenly into a parchment paper lined pan. Cover it with sweetened condensed milk to make sure these bars are super moist and tasty. Then add cinnamon chips and white chocolate chips. If you have trouble finding cinnamon chips, I can always find them at Walmart.

Then, if you aren’t in a sugar coma already, sprinkle a little more cinnamon and sugar on top. Now I am just being indulgent. You could leave that last bit off, but I mean really. At this point, what’s a little more sugar? :)

Then cook those babies up! They are done when they are start to brown on the edges. You may take it out of the oven and think they are too wiggly still to be done, but they are. Once they cool, they firm up enough to stay in their bar shape and are heavenly. If you like more of a crunch though, you could cook them a few minutes longer. But just a few!

Now come join me in my sugar coma! It’s delightful. :)

    Okay, these look absolutely incredible! I love when cereal suddenly becomes a dessert bar!

  3. I’ve actually never had Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal before but I love cinnamon toast so I know I would inhale this. These bars look like perfection and your photos are gorgeous!

    • Thank you! If you like cinnamon sugar you have to try cinnamon toast crunch! A box of that doesn’t last more than a couple days in our house – it’s the best!

      • Carol Hillidge says:

        I don’t see a temp for the recipe
        I read it 3 times I see to bake it 25 min. But have no idea the temp. Please let me know

        Thanks

  4. Is the size of pan correct 9×13. The cinnamon toast cereal layer seems very thin.

    • lifeloveandsugar@gmail.com says:

      It is correct – they are thinner bars. But you could definitely make them in a 9×9 pan to make them thicker. You’ll just need to cook them longer.
