Once again I tried something and it did not go as planned…….but, this time the result was marvelous !!!!

I saw in a Huffington Post blurb, a story about 2014 food trends. One of the items was from a blog called Dude Foods. On the blog Nick, who writes the blog, used canned cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookie dough to make these stuffed cinnamon rolls. In his recipe you unroll the cinnamon roll , roll out cookie dough to the same length and cut into strips. You then re-roll the cinnamon roll with the cookie dough inside and bake. Sounds easy right?

Well, leave it to me to buy the wrong kind of cinnamon rolls. I bought just the regular one that I think are biscuits with cinnamon topping. No way to unwrap them……, instead of scrapping the whole idea, since the chocolate chip cookie dough was in small squares (I bought the ready, already ones) , I figured I could make the cinnamon roll into a cup, put the cookie dough inside and bake…….it worked great. It was also a little easier to make the cup and just set the cookie dough inside as apposed to rolling out the dough…….sorry Nick!

So, I had set aside the icing, since I like a nice visual……..we are all into “food porn” at our house….lol. I put the icing into a plastic bag, cut the tip off,and made a nice little crosshatch pattern. You can just as easily ice them like you would a regular cinnamon roll.

They were really yummy. Tim and I had them with some ice cream for dessert…….because after all, isn’t dessert the whole point of a meal????

But, these would also be great for anytime you need a last minute treat. They took minutes to prepare, and about 15 minutes to bake.

So, they next time you need a quick to fix, take along treat, that requires only 2 ingredients………..try these Chocolate Chip Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls.

Sunday breakfast…..isn’t it the best breakfast of the week??? You have all the time in the world to relax and enjoy something special. I know a lot of folks like to go out for breakfast, and don’t get me wrong I am one of them………..have I mentioned what a crazy winter it has been here in the mid-west? If not here is winter in a nut shell……..snow, snow. snow……….freezing, freezing, freezing……..did I leave anything out? Given the weather, I have become even more of a home body than I usually am. Seriously, I could stay in the house from Thanksgiving until at least St Patricks Day…….maybe longer depending on the whole groundhog shadow thing. I really, really, hate cold weather. The only thing I hate worse is driving in the snow……… I truly thing I am not cut out for winter! Continue reading “Cinnamon Roll Pancakes with Brown Sugar Bacon”
