  • 1 can (5 count) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 1/4 cup Betty Crocker™ Creamy Deluxe™ vanilla frosting
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping, warmed


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Open the package of Cinnamon Rolls and unroll each one. Cut each piece of dough into 5 equal pieces. Roll into a ball between the palms of your hands.
  • 2
    Add the melted butter to a small bowl. Add the cinnamon and sugar to a separate small bowl and stir to combine. Dunk each ball of dough in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar. Place on the baking sheet.
  • 3
    Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Let cool 10 minutes.
  • 4
    Fit a piping bag with a small tip. Heat the frosting in the microwave for about 10 seconds, just to soften it enough for piping. Fill the piping bag with the frosting.
  • 5
    Stick the tip into the top of each ball and squirt in the frosting until you can feel the Cinnabon ball puff a bit.
  • 6
    Top with caramel sauce, if desired.
