Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispies Treats

Rice Krispies treats always reminds me of being a kid because my brother made them ALL the time. I never complained even though they were usually gone in 2 minutes. They are one treat I cannot stop eating so I rarely make them anymore.
And while I absolutely love the original recipe, I wanted to switch it up a bit and add some cinnamon to the batch. I searched for a cinnamon roll type Rice Krispies treat recipe and mostly came up short so I adapted one that I found.
These Cinnamon Roll Rice Krispies treats have all of the goodness of cinnamon rolls with half the calories and effort it takes to make them. I really don't know how you can go wrong with adding cinnamon to anything, especially dessert.
