Sounds good, tried it, but the product did not go over well with the crowd. I would not recommend this recipe.

I thought this should have some spice in it. If I make this I'll change the recipe to include some, cinnamon is not enough.

I have made these many times for parties and pot lucks; they are true winner. I add my own touch to them by adding a pinch of chipotele powder with the cinnamon and/or a bar of dark chili chocolate(Lindt Excellence). It adds the little extra kick.
Really love these brownies <3 <3

My cereal wasn't crunchy, but chewy... maybe I need to crush the cereal more or make it more compact? Any hints?
Still great though - gobbled up without much problem, just didn't have that crunch.

Loved the idea of the Cinnamon Crunch Cereal. Tested them as they came out of the oven. Very nice! When Family found them shortly after,they started to disappear.Will definitely continue to make this recipe. Excellent Texture and taste. A Winner for sure. %0d%0a Sammybird%0d%0a%0d%0a

Tried this and was a little disappointed. Looks great and is pretty good, but not as good as it sounded.

I can see why Pillsbury picked these brownies for the BakeOff. They are very innovative with the cereal used as a crust, similar to a graham cracker crust BUT much, much better! Since I live at high altitude, I followed the high altitude instructions. I baked the cereal crust for about five minutes and also added extra water and flour to the brownie mix as the box instructions specified. After I sprinkled on the cinnamon sugar, the instructions specified I should bake the brownies an additional 14 to 18 minutes. I checked them after just 10 minutes and it turns out they were over done. The brownies in the middle of the pan were really moist, dense, and rich; just the edges seem to have gotten a bit dry and hard. If I make again, I'll have to tweak the baking time. I gave my rating 4 stars because my son did not care for the brownies, but I think this is a really good recipe.

This is my second submission, because my so called "gourmet" friends who are used to my bakery creations, LOVE these brownies. In fact, in addition to my own personal preferences, several weekly guests have now asked that I include these brownies on a regular basis. Believe me, as someone who has spent a majority of my career in the chocolate and allied industries, I never thought that a "boxed" brownie mix would shine so brightly. Again, this recipe should be crowned the Bake-Off Winner.

As a "professional" amateur baker and cook, I pride myself on making most of my creations from scratch. I happened to find a few boxes of the called for brownie mix hidden away in one of my cupboards. They were a present last year when I was recuperating from surgery, and my friend thought I could use them instead of making brownies the "old fashioned" way. Well, they never got used, but instead of giving them away, I decided to try this recipe. I was shocked and thrilled at the results. The flavor, the crunch and overall mouth feel is incredible. Even fans of my regular brownies loved them as well. In fact, between eating them myself and sharing, we emptied a pan in record time. This should be the Bake-Off Winner for sure!
