Cinnamon Roll Pops Recipe

These Cinnamon Roll Pops are a fun spin on a traditional pastry!  They can be made as simply as using a can of pre-made cinnamon roll dough, using half of one of the cinnamon roll strips, dividing it in half and then rolling it back up or using the Cinnamon Roll Pop recipe below.  The Cream Cheese Icing is a yummy addition that adds a rich taste to these rolls!  My kids think these are quite the novelty, I think it might have something to do with them being on a stick!

I love them because they are not only yummy to eat but can also be used as a bouquet in a vase or pot and used as a decoration on a food table at a party as well as a treat!  Try it as an appetizer at a holiday Easter brunch or serve it for dessert.  Makes the perfect snack for kids on the go or let your party guests take a few for the road!  You could also wrap them in clear bags or celophane and secure the opening with a decorative bow for individual treats or gifts.

For this recipe I used BBQ skewers soaked in water for about 10 minutes before I baked them,  then when they were done I slipped a paper straw on the outside of the skewer to make them just a bit more decorative in my opinion!  I then placed some rice in a decorative tin pot that I had and the Cinnamon Roll Pop sticks stand up pretty securely this way.  They are fun to display and would be a fun addition to your next party or get together!
