Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispies Treats

I saw this recipe recently and knew I had to make it as soon as I had friends over to help me eat it: http://daydreamerdesserts.com/2012/08/cinnamon-toast-crunch-krispies-treats.html/. I don't even like Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Rice Krispie treats, but knew I'd love this.

My local grocery store didn't have cinnamon bun marshmallows, and I didn't want to have a partial bag of plain marshmallows left over anyway. So as per standard operating procedure for me, I simplified the original recipe. The end result was AMAZING!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Krispies Treats
(serves 12+)

4 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
4 cups Rice Krispies cereal
5 oz butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 large bag plain miniature marshmallows

White Chocolate Maple Glaze
2 oz white chocolate, chopped
1 oz heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon maple syrup

1. Spray a 9×13 pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a large pot, melt butter on low heat. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and marshmallows. Continue stirring until completely melted.
3. Add cereal and combine. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Spread evenly and compress cereal mixture with spatula.
4. Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring frequently. Add cream and maple syrup. Stir to combine, and drizzle over treats.
