Recipe adapted from My Yellow Umbrella.

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and couldn’t help myself. It was amazing. I made it twice, once in glass and once in ceramic and had a much better result in the ceramic dish. I also decided that the best cinnamon and sugar ration is 3:1 with maybe a little extra cinnamon thrown in for good measure. I keep my cinnamon sugar around in a container just in case! I took these to a Super Bowl party and they were a HUGE hit. I had to make sure I got some at the party because there were certainly not leftovers. I will definitely be making this again a lot and highly recommend it.
