If you follow me on Facebook or instagram, you have probably heard of my quest to find of cinnamon chips. And, thanks to several of my very helpful friends (followers), I found the infamous chips at Walmart (which means, I stepped foot inside a walmart. . . something I don't like to do unless absolutely necessary. . . this WAS necessary). So, thank you very much! I bought 5 bags and plan on buying more next month and hoarding them in my freezer, bring them out periodically over the next 12 months. I think it will work, right. (I must say, I am not normally a hoarder, but when it comes to this recipe, and a few others, I will hoard in order to make them during the year. You do what you have to do!
You see, 2 years ago, you could find these chips during the holidays at your local grocery store. I bought 2 bags, not knowing how much I would LOVE the treats baked from them, including the recipe I am about to share with you. Then, they disappeared from the shelves only to be brought back to select stores nationwide. (I really think that needs to change. . . I am surprised more people haven't scoured shelves for them because this recipe is a KEEPER!
Recipes for Snickerdoodle bread are all over Pinterest. Most of them are pretty much the same recipe, but some changed it up a bit. I liked one that used Sugar in the Raw instead of regular sugar for the topping. It gave it more of a crunch, kind of like Panera's cinnamon crunch bagel (we are huge fans!). But, if you don't have it available in your pantry, feel free to use regular sugar. . . It's still going to be awesome!
