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!
