Inspired by My new favorite drink. Fireball & Rum Chata-Delicious!! Tastes like cinnamon toast crunch.
Just the frosting has alcohol in it. I switch the rum chata for rum flavoring and a pinch of cinnamon, for those who dont wish to have the alcohol. The cinnamon toast crunch cereal would taste awesome on frosting. ;)
