Mini Cinnamon Rolls

Here's the last recipe from our themed "I'm a Giant" party. Aren't these cinnamon rolls super cute? You could even pop them on lollypop sticks for a handheld treat! But what I love most about this recipe is how easy it is. No yeast. No dough making. Just canned crescent rolls! It doesn't get much easier than that!

Keywords: bake breakfast dessert cinnamon

Ingredients (serves 16)
    Cinnamon Roll Ingredients:
    • 1 8 oz can crescent roll dough
    • 2 tbs melted butter
    • cinnamon
    • brown sugar
    Icing Ingredients:
    • 3/4 c powdered sugar
    • 1-2 tbs milk
    • 1/4 tsp vanilla
    Preheat the oven according to package directions and spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick spray.
    Unroll the dough on a flat surface, pinching all the triangles together to form one rectangle.
    Smooth seams together with a rolling pin, until the dough is about 1/4 inch thick.
    Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle as much brown sugar and cinnamon as you want over the top.
    Carefully roll the dough into a long log.
    Cut into 16 even slices and place each piece in a mini muffin tin.
    Bake according to package directions.
    While the rolls are in the oven, whisk all the icing ingredients together until smooth.
    Drizzle icing over warm cinnamon rolls.

    9. Those are adorable! Unfortunately, my dd can't have it, but it is a great idea to try to make my own recipe. She likes to have a BFG Roald Dahl breakfast party every year and this would be a cute addition to it or her Alice in Wonderland party.

    10. Hey girl! These look amazing!! Seriously. What great photos you have! I just wanted to let you know that I'm featuring them tonight on Work It Wednesday. Thanks for linking up! You've got some serious talent ;)
