Chocolate-Peppermint Cinnamon Rolls

Get some serious cake batter goodness with these delicious candy-cane kissed cinnamon rolls. Easy and so holidaylicious!

Ingredients

1
tube Pillsbury™ cinnamon rolls with icing
3/4
cup Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ chocolate fudge cake mix
1/3
cup butter, melted
1
can Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1/2
teaspoon peppermint extract
1
tube red gel food coloring
3
tablespoons holiday sprinkles

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Open cinnamon rolls and gently unroll in a sheet (do not separate), exposing the cinnamon center of the rolls.
  • 3 In a small bowl, stir together the cake mix and butter until a paste forms. Spread this over the cinnamon rolls. Gently re-roll the cinnamon rolls, separate into single rolls, and place in a 9 inch cake pan which has been lightly coated with nonstick baking spray.
  • 4 Bake for 12-18 minutes, or just until the cinnamon rolls turn a light golden brown. Remove and cool completely.
  • 5 Tint half of the frosting red with Betty Crocker™ gel food coloring. Add the extract to the white half of the frosting.
  • 6 Spoon the red frosting into one half of a pastry bag (fitted with a large star tip) and gently fill the other half of the bag with the peppermint-flavored white frosting.
  • 7 Pipe frosting over cooled cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles. Serve and enjoy!
