DIY Cinnamon Chips

Cinnamon chips aren’t an item that most people have in their pantries, but now you can make your own and have them available at all times. These will add a delicious dose of cinnamon to any recipe.

  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: about 1 1/2 cups 1x


  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 200 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray paper with a no-stick cooking spray. In a medium-size bowl, mix together the sugar, cinnamon vegetable shortening, and corn syrup until totally combined and crumbly.
  2. Spread the mixture out on the prepared baking sheet, flattening out with another sheet of parchment paper or the back of a spatula into a rectangle about 1/4″ thick.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until the mixture is hot and melted together. It shouldn’t be crisp. Let cool completely.
  4. Use a pizza wheel to slice the cooled block into small square chips. I made 1/4″ squares. Store in an airtight container until ready to use. They should keep for a long period of time, just like any other baking chips.
