I admit, it took me a while to come up with these. It wasn't until I went digging through the "pile o' morsels" that this clicked into my head. I'm not the biggest fan of Hershey's Cinnamon Chips, at least pre-baked, but they worked out really well in these. In fact, the flavor seems like it should be in something bread-y or muffin-y. Definitely not in bar form. Which is what I think is so great about these. Oh, and they're "guinea pig approved", too. I should make them a logo or something. :)
Anyways, I like these. Much better than the ginger blondies I previously made. These can be just a snack, or heated up and topped with ice cream. Ooh, a cinnamon ice cream would go perfectly! *covets* ;)
These are also for Myriam's Browniebabe of the Month event. :)
