Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies are a soft, chewy way to enjoy the cinnamon sugar flavor of the favorite cereal!
We are cereal people in my house.
Cereal for breakfast..of course…
Cereal for after school snacks.
And yes, the occasional cereal for dinner. THINGSGETBUSY!
So now…I’ve decided cereal for dessert needed to happen. In cookie form.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of our favorites and to me, is the perfect pairing for a cookie.
Perfect pairing. Heh. I think I’m fancy.
Anyhow, these cookies are perfectly sweet and perfectly chewy…with the perfect amount of cinnamon. With 2 cups of CTC crumbs baked right in it’s like handheld cereal. I’m basically a genius. Sorry, that’s annoying.
And of course I drizzled them with a little white chocolate to make them look purty…but you could totally bake white chocolate chips right inside too!
Just start with 4 cups of your cereal…
When you crush it up, those 4 cups become about 2 cups.
Mix those crumbs right into the batter.
Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet. I used my large cookie scoop. Bake them for 8-9 minutes-ish.
And look how pretty they are… But again, I think a little white chocolate never hurt anyone.
