I started a thread in the "miscellaneous" forum asking where to buy cinnamon chips and several people responded, so I thought I'd come over to the cooking forum to start a thread with recipes for them! 

Post here any recipes you have for chips that are not chocolate chips (any kind of chocolate).  Cinnamon and vanilla are what I plan to bake with, but there are also peanut butter, butterscotch, and who knows what else.  These maple chips    http://www.preparedpantry.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=453 sound awfully good, too!

Feel free to start a thread for chips of the chocolate persuasion, if you like; I just didn't want the other kinds of chips to get lost in the shuffle here.

Here's the recipe that got me started obsessing about all of these novelty baking chips.  I haven't tried it yet, but plan to as soon as I can get my hand on the star ingredient!

Iced Cinnamon Chip Cookies

from Taste of Home


1 cup butter, softened

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 package (10 ounces) cinnamon baking chips



1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup shortening

1-1/4 cup confectioner's sugar

1 tablespoon milk

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.  Fold in cinnamon chips.


Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes  or until golden brown.  Remove to wire racks to cool.


In a small mixing bowl, combine icing ingredients; beat on high speed for 1-2 minutes or until fluffy.  Spread over cookies.


Yield: 46 cookies

Oh, my word, Robin, those sound heavenly!!  You've got me on the lookout for cinnamon chips, too!  None at Walmart today, though they did have pepperment ones.    I remember seeing a recipe on an ad for those chips for cinnamon coffeecake muffins and couldn't find them.     I have to run to another store tomorrow, and will keep my eye out for those cinnamon chips. Now I've got to get me some!!

I was at Walmart last night and they now have Andies mint chips and caramel chips.. yummy! 

I posted this in one of the other threads already for the cookbook but these cookies are so GOOD!

Cinnamon Roll Cookies



  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cinnamon chips (made by Hershey's)
  • 1 can cream cheese frosting or your own homemade version

Cinnamon Sugar Mixture

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into 1 inch balls.  Roll the balls in cinnamon sugar mixture:

Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.  

Remove cookies to wire cooling rack and put icing on cookies as soon as they come out of oven so it melts on top.  Make sure to have a sheet of foil or waxed paper under the cooling rack.
