Todd Family Recipe

So I have thought for years that cinnamon bear cookies were a normal thing that every family did. That is until I tried googling the recipe when I couldn’t get ahold of my mama. I could not find a single thing about them. Turns out my lovely aunt made it up!


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup rice krispies

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup flour

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup cinnamon bears or lips (cut up in about 6ths)

Cream butter, sugars, egg and vanilla. Add sifted dry ingredients. Add rice krispies, oatmeal coconut and cinnamon bears.

Bake @ 325 for 10 minutes.

These have been my favorite for years!

Cupcake Pops!

I have been wanting to make theseĀ F-O-R-E-V-E-R!

I have made plain old sphere shaped cake pops lots of times and the one time I attempted a shape it was a disaster! My friend Regan had mentioned wanting to learn how to make them so I thought I’d give them a second chance and I’m in LOVE! We learned a lot and I’m sure in the future they will be even better, but we sure had a blast and they are yummy!
