‘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.
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.
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!

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!
I know I would love these cookies. So glad you had such a great time at Hershey.
Yum! These look great! If I don’t have cinnamon chips can I substitute white chocolate?
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!
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. 🙂
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.
I just bought several bags of cinnamon chips last night, these look perfect to use some of them up!
I have got to get my hands on some of these Cinnamon Chips!!
Total win! I have been all about baking with cinnamon lately, so this is a perfect recipe 🙂

Cinnamon chips are great! I’ve only had the kind from King Arthur and I think they are great.
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!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen them. Which stores carry them?
I wish I could buy these chips every day. 😉 The cookies look fabulous!
These look great, and I bet smell even better! I love all the different flavors people use this time of year!

I have cinnamon chips leftover from some scones- great idea to use them in this!
