Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Cinnamon Rolls in a waffle maker? It just might be the easiest breakfast ever!

Today’s recipe isn’t so much a recipe as a really awesome tip. I came across this idea for cinnamon roll waffles a while ago but I was skeptical. You’ve probably seen it too, but I had no idea that we would love it as much as we do, and it’s too good not to share!

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Waffles

As luck would have it, I happened upon this a waffle maker at Target for $2.27. Yes, you read that correctly!! I got lucky one day right after Christmas when I was checking out the clearance section. I’m assuming it was one of those specially packaged Christmas gift kind of things as it was only something like $14 regular price. But for just over $2, how could I pass it up?

Problem was my kids don’t like waffles. They don’t like pancakes either. Well that’s not entirely true – they don’t like MY waffles or MY pancakes. Give ’em a box of Eggos and they’re happy campers. Until the day I discovered that a waffle maker doesn’t have to just be used for waffles.

Say what?? Mind. Blown.

Easy Cinnamon Roll Waffles

So here’s the non-recipe-more-like-a-tip recipe:

1 can of refrigerator cinnamon rolls.

That’s it.

Oh, and a waffle maker.

Heat the waffle make until the pretty green light comes up, then place a cinnamon roll in each section.

Close the waffle maker and wait for the other pretty light to come on to tell you it’s done. (If you don’t have a pretty little light, this takes just about 3-4 minutes).

Yummy Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Now what’s a waffle without syrup? Good thing it comes right in the package! We don’t use much, so I just heat up the icing in the microwave for about 20 seconds until it’s pourable.
