Mini cinni-rolls served up like little cupcakes. The time has come.
Who says you have to run to a restaurant to enjoy a batch of fresh-baked mini cinnamon rolls? With this easy recipe we’ll show you how to make yummy lil’ cinnamon breakfast cupcakes in 20 minutes flat. One ingredient is all you need.
Yep, this adorable idea is what we like to call pure breakfast brilliance.
Here’s your ingredient line-up. A single can of Pillsbury™ Grands! Grab a few the next time you’re at the grocery store and you’ll be able to whip up these cinni-minis whenever you please.
Need a quick breakfast? Boom.
Want a snappy snack? Blam.
Hosting a last-minute brunch? Boosh. (Also, you’re going to need mimosas. But that’s a whole ‘nother article).
To make these sweeties, simply slice up each roll of dough into four pie-like triangles. Then pinch the edges together to make a little round re-roll. (Which is what I call big cinnamon rolls twisted into tiny cinnamon rolls.)
Pop your little balls of dough into a mini cupcake-lined baking sheet.
Then bake until they’re golden brown and cinnamon-smelling.
Be ready with your frosting! These taste yummiest when you frost them ASAP.
Just follow the directions on the back of the package, allowing your frosting to melt (or microwaving it for just a few seconds) until it’s easy to drizzle.
Serve with your favorite breakfast munchins. Which is the word we use for munchy yumyums that make amazing morning food. But you knew that, right?
