I have to admit it, I love Cinnabon. Do I eat it…not often…it’s so sweet and tasty and wonderful. I usually only get one when I’m traveling as a little treat for me and then share it with the family. There is no way I could finish one by myself! Enter my Cinnabon Party Snack..now I can have the flavors without as much as the guilt. It’s still not good for you and a quick warning that this is super duper addictive!
So, I was really excited when I was contacted to try the new Cinnabon Sprinkle Topping and Cinnabon Syrup. I knew I had to come up with a fun and unique way to use these little treasures, but I didn’t want to go the traditional route of cinnamon rolls or pancakes with the syrup. So I came up with this tasty little gem that will be perfect for your next party or get together.
A little warning….it is loaded with tons of sugary goodness! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
My 7yo daughter learned how to make origami cups in 2nd grade last year. I never learned cool stuff like that, but that’s another story. Anyway, I grabbed a cool piece of paper, called her into the room, and had her teach me how to make the cup. I think it made a fun way munch on our new Cinnabon Party Snacks! What do you think?
Cinnabon Party Snack Mix
This Cinnabon party snack mix puts a delicious cinnamon twist on traditional muddy buddies.
- 6 oz white chocolate chips
- 6 cups toasted corn or rice cereal (or a mix of both)
- 4 tbsp Cinnabon Syrup
- 3/4 cup confectioners sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp Cinnabon Sprinkle Topping
- opt: extra cinnamon for garnish
- In a medium, microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips for 30 seconds in microwave. Stir, then microwave in 15 second intervals until the chips are completely melted and smooth.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine confectioners sugar and Cinnabon Sprinkle Topping and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine white chocolate and cereal until well combined. Drizzle Cinnabon Syrup over the cereal and stir gently to coat.
- Put coated cereal in a large gallon-sized zip top baggie along with the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Seal it up and shake! Keep shaking until all the cereal is coated.
- When serving, sprinkle with a little cinnamon to add a little color!
Important: Do not add syrup to melted white chocolate chips. It will seize the chocolate.

Disclosure: I received the Cinnabon products used. All opinions and the recipe are my own.
I think vanilla “white” chips would make it taste a lot better than the white chocolate ones. More identical to Cinnabon flavor. The chocolate doesn’t sound that great with the cinnamon.

Oh….that does sound good! The white chocolate was tasty…everyone liked it. I bet your version would be great too!
Becky B says
Wow! I’m definitely making this for our Christmas family party…. Thanks!
After reading this, and loving many forms of “Chex Mix” I think I need to find myself some Cinnabon sprinkles and give this recipe a try!!
Karen Propes says
Thank you, it looks and sounds delish….. Great for holidays, also great for parties and put in paper cones or cups. You are so creative. Great way to help with my Cinnabon cravings and gifts oh my. You have answered some of my what to get ideas if I can keep from eating it long enough.
Oh wow that looks amazing! That is such an awesome munchie mood snack! I have to try this out. Anything Cinnabon is going to be delicious! 🙂 Thanks for sharing this!
This looks too good to be true! I love the consistency and texture of “puppy chow” but always cringe at the chocolate (I just don’t like chocolate). I am going to be looking for these products at my local grocery store so I can WOW my friends and family. Thank you!!!
