Cinnamon Rice Crispy Treats

Rice Crispy Treats are one of my favorite snacks to make.  Not only because I can have them done in less than 10 minutes, but also because there are 1001 variations you can use.  I love to add peanut butter or frost them with something made of chocolate.  But this variation easily makes it into my Top 5 Rice Crispy Treats of all time list.  My kiddos loved it too and ate the entire batch in less than 5 minutes.  I had to hurry and put some away so I could take a picture.  Your kiddos will love you (even more than they already do) if them come home from school to these little beauties!

Cinnamon Rice Crispy Treats
Make about 24 treats

1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 (10 oz.) package mini marshmallows
6 cups Rice Crispy cereal
3/4 cup toffee chips
1 cup chocolate chips
1 Tbs. vegetable shortening

In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the cinnamon and cook and stir until fragrant.  Stir in the marshmallows and allow to melt.

Stir in the cereal and toffee chips and mix well.  Press into a 9 x 13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

In the microwave, melt the chocolate chips and shortening 30 seconds at a time until smooth.  Drizzle over the Rice Crispy Treats.  Allow the chocolate to set before serving.
