Ingredients to Make Cinnamon Roll Waffles:

Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls

How to make the Waffles

First, you need to preheat the waffle maker. Spray the warmed waffle iron with spray oil.

Next, you will place one cinnamon roll into each of the waffle reservoirs. If you are using the jumbo waffles, then you would want to only place one cinnamon roll into the middle of your waffle maker.

Close the waffle maker and allow the cinnamon rolls to cook for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Carefully remove the waffles from the waffle maker, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Topping Ideas

To keep the breakfast as easy as possible, use the cinnamon roll icing that comes in the tube to top the waffles! To make the icing easy to pour onto the waffles, mix a tiny amount of warm water into the icing. You can also mix a small amount of powdered sugar with milk to make a thin icing.

If you want something other than the sweet icing, top the waffles with a little maple syrup or your favorite fresh fruit.

How Long Do You Preheat A Waffle Maker?

Preheating a waffle iron is vital to making crispy, evenly browned waffles. It’s highly suggested to allow the waffle iron to preheat longer than the iron recommends. For the iron to truly heat up evenly, we suggest around 10 minutes.

Can You Freeze The Cinnamon Roll Waffles?

Absolutely! Make a large batch of waffles over the weekend and freeze them for a quick breakfast on the go during the week. To freeze, simply let the waffles cool completely, then store in an air-tight Ziploc bag or container. Then Monday morning grab one from the freezer and pop it into the toaster to warm.
