Cinnamon Cappuccino Brownies

Sunny Select Cinnamon Cappuccino Brownies
I decided to do something with the rejected generic cinnamon toast crunch cereal and I found this recipe on the side of the box.  I omitted the cappuccino in the recipe but the end result still had that flavor, and I topped with some extra cinnamon.  They turned out surprisingly good for a recipe on a box of unwanted cereal!

4 cups Sunny Select Cinni-Mini Crunch cereal, finely crunched
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 package (19.5 oz) fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1 to 2 Tbsp instant coffee (optional)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chocolate fudge topping

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl, stir together crushed cereal and butter until crumbly.  Firmly press into a 13x9-inch baking pan.  In a medium bowl, stir together brownie mix, oil, water, eggs, instant coffee and cinnamon until well blended.  Spread on top of crust in pan.  Spoon dollops of chocolate fudge topping evenly onto batter.  Gently swirl the tip of the knife through chocolate sauce and batter to create a marbled design.  Bake for 28 to 30 minutes or until toothpick insrted 2 inches from side of pan comes out clean.  Serve slightly warm, or cool completely for easier cutting.
