Cranberry Cinnamon Chip Bars

I love autumn.  I love the cold, crisp air, the changing of the leaves, and the wardrobe associated with it all.  But possibly most of all, I love fall food!  (Come to the homepage to see some of our seasonal favorites in the sidebar.)  One of my favorite things to do each season, is take old stand-by recipes and switch them up with seasonal flavors.  That’s what I’ve done here with this classic cookie style bar.  This one is studded with cinnamon flavored chips, juicy pink cranberries and toasted nuts.  The flavors are amazing together and it’s a great (and super easy!) treat for fall time.

This is about as simple as it gets, everything just gets dumped into the pan in layers.  Start with melted butter (you could even save a step right here and melt the butter right in your pan)

Then sprinkle in some graham cracker crumbs and spread them out into an even layer

And then pour on some sweetened condensed milk.

Next goes a layer of coconut

Then some cinnamon chips

I noticed last time I mentioned cinnamon chips some of you said you’d never heard of them.  They’re so good!  I’ve found some stores don’t carry them, but where I live I always find them at Albertsons.

and then some white chocolate chips

Finally on top, sprinkle on some chopped pecans and some dried cranberries.  For this batch I used cranberries from Oh Nuts and I must say they really were the biggest, most plump cranberries I’ve ever had!  I love the pop of color the cranberries give.

That’s it folks.  Just pop that pan in the oven and bake it so everything melts together.

Let them cool before you cut them or you’ll have a big gooey mess.  Or maybe you want a big gooey mess.  If that’s the case then grab a spoon my friend.



  1. My husband LOVES cinnamon chips, but I can only find them every once in a while. When I do find them I usually stock up. I will definitely be trying this. Thanks!

  2. I wasn't sure about these from the title alone, but after I read the ingredients I added them to my shopping list. These sound fantastic!

  3. I'm trying to diet here, ladies! Lol!! I'm gonna set a day aside so I can enjoy a taste or two of these beauties! They look too delicious and way easy not to make!

  4. This sounds a lot like Magic Bars (I believe the recipe is on the label of condensed milk). SO YUMMY! I'll have to try your version, but I do believe I might prefer the chocolate/butterscotch version… 🙂

  5. For some reason I have like ten bags of dried cranberries piled up in my cupboard, I think this will be the perfect way to use them! And cinnamon chips?! I've never heard of such things!
