Those folks who make Cookie Dough Bites are on to something with their newest creation: Cinnamon Bun Bites. I don’t think I agree that they taste “fresh from the oven,” but I’m sure we can all agree that they taste good. They taste so good, in fact, that they were the inspiration for my latest candy bark creation: Cinnamon Bun Bark. Yum!
Cinnamon Bun Bark
- 12oz white chocolate chips
- 3oz chocolate covered raisins
- 3oz yogurt covered raisins
- 3oz Cinnamon Bun Bites
- 1/2c cinnamon drizzle (recipe below)
- Ready a cookie sheet with wax.
- Cut Cinnamon Bites in half, and combine with both kinds of raisins in a bowl.
- Melt white chocolate chips and spread out on baking sheet.
- Drizzle most of the, uh, drizzle over the melted chocolate.
- Sprinkle the raisins and bun bites over top of that.
- Top everything off with the the last bits of drizzle.
- Pop it in the freezer to set and then break apart.
I gave about half of it away and ate pretty much all of the rest. (It was hard to resist, kind of like me!) The drizzle doesn’t actually set fully, and it melts quickly so I suggest that you either a) store the bark in the freezer, or b) mix the drizzle into the chocolate before you spread it out on your cookie sheet. If you go with option B, I’m sure it will taste just as amazing but make less of a mess.
Cinnamon Drizzle: 1/2c powdered sugar, generous 1/4t cinnamon, 1/2t of vanilla and 2-3T milk (or, if, like me, you are out of milk, you could use vanilla-flavored coffee creamer instead of the vanilla and milk).
I’m totally into taking a dessert and turning into candy bark, so you’ll probably see more like this from me soon. In the meantime, make this Cinnamon Bun Bark, your friends, your family and your taste buds will thank you.
