So I realize I’ve been posting a ton of cinnamon-seasoned desserts lately, but can you blame me?  Cinnamon enhances all things pumpkin and apple, but it really shines on its own as well.  As a result, I gave these blondies the full addicted-to-cinnamon treatment.

Cinnamon Roll Blondie Bites - that frosting is incredible!

These perfect fudgy blondie bites are full of cinnamon chips and then topped with an incredible cinnamon roll cream cheese icing.  Either one is delicious on its own, but together you have an incredibly indulgent bite-sized treat.

Cinnamon Roll Blondie Bites - need to make these!
