Cinnamon Roll Blondies, blondie batter swirled with cinnamon sugar and topped with a luscious cream cheese icing!
There aren’t many things that can’t be improved with cream cheese. Or, at least that is my philosophy!
Cream cheese is one of Jeremy’s favorite food groups 😉 . I’m not sure if that’s why he is so obsessed with cinnamon rolls, but for me personally the icing is my favorite part!
I really wanted to make a fun dessert with the flavors or cinnamon rolls without having to go through the trouble of making them from scratch.
I had on hand all the ingredients for blondies already so I thought, why not mix the two together! AND BAM. Deliciousness, of course!
These blondies came out sooo good, they are thick and chewy, bursting with cinnamon sugar! But, that cream cheese icing is really what sets them off!
Cinnamon Roll Blondies
- ¼ Cup granulated sugar
- 2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
- 1½ Cups Light Brown Sugar, packed
- ½ Cup Butter, melted
- 2 each Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1½ Cups All-Purpose Flour
- ½ tsp Baking Powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1 Tablespoons of the cinnamon sugar mixture
- 4 oz cream cheese, softened
- 1 Tablespoon milk
- ¾ Cup powdered sugar
- Mix two ingredients together, set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in microwave in microwave safe dish (30ish seconds) and let cool. Add the eggs and vanilla to a large bowl and beat eggs with hand mixer. Add the brown sugar to the mix. Combine well. Add butter and mix. In separate bowl, mix the remaining ingredients except for the cinnamon sugar. Mix dry ingredients together and add a little at a time to the wet mixture. Once wet and dry mixtures are combined thoroughly. Pour mixture into a greased or lined 13×9 pan.
- Take 1 Tablespoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture and create two lines down the length of the blondie dough. Taking a toothpick, make figure eights through the sugar. Bake for 30-25 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. PLace on wired rack to cool completely.
- Place cream cheese in a bowl and using a fork, break up until smooth. Add in the milk and combine, add in the powdered sugar a little at a time until fully incorporated.
- Cut the blondies into bars and top with icing, or ice the whole pan then cut into bars, enjoy!

These are super easy! You will have left over cinnamon sugar, it lasts forever and I use it in multiple recipes and just on toast is so yummy!
