Split Second Waffle Iron Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Split Second Waffle Iron Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
Sometimes we are craving something sweet, but don’t have the energy to mess up the kitchen or go to the grocery store. That’s where the following Split Second Waffle Iron Cinnamon Rolls come into play. Although refrigerated dough isn’t up to homemade, there are varieties that are actually quite good, and the cinnamon rolls fit into that category. Almost everyone has a waffle iron, and these are so quick, you can have that treat you are craving in about 15 minutes.
You can use any refrigerated sweet rolls such as orange or cinnamon. The end result is a crunchy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside delicious baked treat. If you happen to be serving brunch, you can set out your waffle iron and let guests bake their own. They go well with most brunch casseroles, as well as omelets and scrambled eggs. They also make a perfect weeknight dessert when time is short.

I use my Belgian waffle iron because I like how the indentations are extra deep, but you can use any type of waffle iron with perfect results.

8 Servings

1 12.8 oz. package refrigerated cinnamon rolls, or substitute orange rolls

2 teaspoons butter

  1. Set a waffle iron to heat.
  2. When heated, melt 1/2 teaspoon of the butter on both the top and bottom plates of the waffle iron.
  3. Place a cinnamon roll on each of four sections; close the lid and bake 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Remove from the iron and repeat for the additional four rolls.
  5. Squeeze or spread the frosting evenly on the warm rolls and serve.
