Cinnamon Crunch Cupcakes
These Cinnamon Crunch Cupcakes are so good! My family could not stop eating them. I am glad that I took some of them to my son Cole’s football banquet, because we would have eaten them all. Yes, they are that scrumptious and I can definitely see me making them again in the future very soon!
In this delicious Cinnamon Crunch Cupcakes recipe, I used Mom’s Best Toasted Cinnamon Squares®. They are so yummy, and my kids love them for breakfast and as an after-school snack.
