Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispie Squares with a Maple Syrup Glaze

27 Apr

I am exhausted.  Having a puppy is like having a toddler dropped in your lap and you can’t use diapers.  It’s crazy.  I love our Max.  He is funny and cute and wonderful.  But…. he poops on the floor, chews anything and wakes me up waaaay too early in the morning.

Here is a quick and easy treat but so good and easy.  Mr’s favorite cereal is Cinnamon Toast Crunch.  We don’t buy it anymore because cereal in Canada is so expensive, about twice the price as it is in the US.  It was on sale last week and so were marshmallows and these were born.

Mr. loved them.  I woke up the morning after I made these and there was a big randomly cut chunk missing.  That’s always a good sign.  The maple glaze isn’t required but it does bring these up a notch.  The glaze drips through and pools on the bottom and get all crunchy.  It’s goooood.

VERDICT

These are quick and easy.  Great for the kids and a little different that your typical rice krispie squares.  They weren’t sickly sweet like I was expecting, which was a plus.  Mr. and the kids loved them.  I found myself going back more often than I would have thought too.
