Chewy Drizzled Cinnamon Chip Cookies

by on December 8, 2010 · 17 comments

‘Tis the season for Cinnamon Chips!

Or at at least at my house. I guess there are some places where you can buy them every day,  but my local grocery store starts carrying them around the holidays, at which point I stock up.  Cinnamon chips are a great way to add flavor and touch of richness.  If you can’t find them at any of your local grocery stores, you can order a 6-pack of Hershey’s brand off Amazon.  Also, King Arthur flour sells their own cinnamon chips, which I have yet to try.

Anyhow, I baked these last weekend so that Fuzz would have something to take to the school cookie drive  which was scheduled during a time I was out of town.   While I would have preferred to serve them fresh, I froze them for a few days and am hoping they taste just as good as they did before I left.  They are quite a unique cookie.   Melted cinnamon chips go into the batter, and more melted cinnamon chips go on top.  To keep the cookies chewy, they use a little corn syrup.  And for extra flavor and texture, the cookies get rolled in finely ground (or chopped) pecans.  These took a little more work than oatmeal cookies, but the family liked them and I hope the teachers do too.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen them. Which stores carry them?

I love the idea of using cinnamon chips in lieu of a more traditional chocolate. A fun holiday twist on a classic favorite! Great recipe!

Cinnamon chips are great! I’ve only had the kind from King Arthur and I think they are great.

Total win! I have been all about baking with cinnamon lately, so this is a perfect recipe :)

I just bought several bags of cinnamon chips last night, these look perfect to use some of them up!

I’ve never had the Hershey’s cinnamon chips, but the cinnamon chips from KA Flour are great! If I can find the Hershey’s chips I’ll give them a try.

Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips are good. So are their Vanilla Chips. I like to add the cinnamon chips to Snickerdoodles to kick up the cinnamon. And I like to make Orangecicle Cookies or Root Beer Float Cookies and add the vanilla chips. And, buying them in the grocery store beats having to order them. :-)

Those look delicious! I might have to go on a hunt for cinnamon chips so I can try them.

And I wanted to comment on another comment, Louise, Orangecicle and Root Beer Float cookies sound delicious as well! I may have to hunt a recipe for those down!

Yum! These look great! If I don’t have cinnamon chips can I substitute white chocolate?

Barbara Bakes December 8, 2010 at 11:22 pm

I know I would love these cookies. So glad you had such a great time at Hershey.

Linda December 9, 2010 at 11:31 am

Thank you for all of these cookies. We have a cookie swap tea that I am preparing for and I also give cookies as gifts at Christmas time. I can’t wait to make these and bite into them. I love cinnamon!

looks inviting!

Cinnamon chips are readily available here too. I made a pumpkin cookie with cinnamon chips that is fabulous. These looks amazing, I LOVE the drizzle!
