Easy Mini Cinnarolls

I woke up this morning with a craving for cinnamon rolls. Okay so maybe it’s an everyday craving but today I just had to have em.

These mini rolls are so easy and a great way for your kids to join you in the kitchen.

Here’s what you need:

Image

Start by chopping up your almonds. You can omit them all together or use a different kind of nut. Whatever suits your fancy.

Open your crescent roll and roll out the dough. Get little fingers to mush the lines together for you.

Image

Then have your littles brush on some melted butter. ( I melted 1/8 of a cup)

Image

Next sprinkle the dough with brown sugar, cinnamon and the chopped nuts.

Image

Roll up the dough lengthwise and cut into pieces. ( I cut mine into 12 pieces)

Image

Spray a mini muffin tin with non stick spray and put your mini cinnarolls in. Brush the tops with a little more melted butter and stick them into a preheated 350F oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until slightly brown.

While they are baking make an easy 2 ingredient frosting. Take 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and mix with 1 teaspoon of milk. Drizzle over warm cinnarolls.

Look at this gooey, caramely bottom!

And here they are! Framed out in bacon.

Enjoy! Make it a yummy day!!
