How to Make Cinnamon Roll Waffles

What you need to make these delicious cinnamon bun waffles:  refrigerated cinnamon rolls (with frosting), waffle maker.  The end.

Separate the cinnamon rolls and place them in your pre-heated waffle maker.  Waffle according to your maker’s instructions … mine literally took about 2 – 3 minutes.  Watch them closely so they don’t burn – they cook quickly!  Why would I ever preheat my oven and bake them for 20 minutes again?!  This is GENIUS!!

After baking the cinnamon bun waffles, drizzle with the included frosting. If the frosting is too thick, microwave it in a bowl for 10 seconds until it thins.

  23. Simple solution to clean your waffle iron – while still warm brush gently with an old toothbrush & wipe with a paper towel. Everything seems to wipe right out before cooling and hardening into place. Love the cinnamon waffle idea, THANKS! Surprise! Waffle irons can be used for grilled sandwiches as well, as I learned accidentally when in a rush and mistakenly pulled it out and preheated it rather than the griller (which are stored side by side). Imagine the surprise when I removed the cooked sandwich with squares and finally noticed my error- lol

  24. How would you make this work with frozen cinnamon rolls, just let them thaw for a few minutes??

    1. I think if they were thawed out, they would probably work. Maybe I should experiment … darn, another excuse to eat these!! 🙂

  25. I just linked you to my blog, http://missmessycrocker.blogspot.com/. Check it out.. what a great idea…I am thinking real maple syrup instead of the cream drizzle…..yummy!

  28. Boy talk about some good eats girl, oh yum. Thanks for all these awesome recipes, granolas and all. What a great hubs, gets you what you really want, think it’s time I got a waffle maker instead of eating those frozen things.
    My problem is I love to eat, if I ate how I’d love to and as much would be one huge old mama. With no thyroid have enuf trouble keeping myself decent, not skinny but decently fluffy. In size 12-14’s. Was thinner for about 3 or so years but too much of Burger King for a year and gained almost 20 lbs. Gotta love their creamy ice cream cones. Groan.
    Have great rest of week food lady.
