I picked up a couple of bags of cinnamon chips this season on a whim. I had no plans for them but knew they would come in handy at some point.
I saw this recipe and knew that it would be perfect. The kids ate them right up and promptly asked for more. Sadly, cinnamon chips can be hard to find most time of the year. They seem to make a special appearance close to the holidays.
If you are able to find a bag, I highly recommend picking one up. Better get two bags, you'll find a use for them. We used part of the second bag instead of chocolate chips and cinnamon in this peanut butter dip. Peanut butter, vanilla yogurt and the cinnamon chips, it was fantastic!
