Lately, I’ve been having a blast experimenting with different shot recipes here on Inspired by Charm. It’s been so much fun and I’m always surprised at how just a couple of ingredients can recreate the classic or nostalgic flavors of some of my favorite foods. Two of my favorites are these Mini Beers (they are so cute) and these Gummy Bear Shots.

When I first heard about a cinnamon toast crunch shot, I KNEW I needed to add it to my list of ones to try. This was/is one of my favorite cereals and I couldn’t wait to see if that flavor could be recreated in a drink recipe.

To my surprise, this shot recipe is made of just two key ingredients. These ingredients pair perfectly together to create that Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal flavor many of us know and love.

Fireball whisky is the key player in this shot by providing a kick of spicy cinnamon flavor that is both warming and comforting.

And then it is RumChata that adds a creamy sweetness (kind of like cereal milk) to help balance out the heat, creating a well-rounded flavor profile that is both spicy and smooth.
