Homemade Caramel Cinnamon Rolls

I am taking a little siesta from writing while we are in this early time of adjusting to life as a family of four. I will post now and then as I have this recipe and a product review to share with you next month. Oh, and in case you hadn't heard the news, take a second to meet Baby W!

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I made my first batch of caramel rolls for Mother's Day and they were a success! Here is the recipe I used:

Caramel Cinnamon Rolls

  • Frozen or fresh, homemade bread dough
  • 1 cup white sugar, mixed with 2 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
Start out with a batch of homemade bread dough (I use a version of this recipe). Don't allow bread to rise.

Break off into bun-sized pieces and roll in the white sugar-cinnamon mixture. Place rolled dough in greased baking pan.

After all of the dough has been broken into pieces and rolled in cinnamon sugar, set rolls aside and make topping.

Melt the butter and pour into remaining cinnamon sugar mixture. Stir well. Melt ice cream and add to mixture. Stir until evenly combined.

Pour mixture of butter, ice cream, cinnamon and sugar over the rolls of dough. Allow rolls to rise for 20 minutes in oven heated to 170°. Remove from oven after risen.

Preheat oven to 375°. Return rolls to oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy and share with others... if you want to :)

Bonus: These are toddler-approved!

  1. This looks delicious! I've never seen a cinnamon roll like this!

    1. They are so good! Now I just need to work up the ambition to make them again :)

  2. I make a pull apart bread during the holidays that is very similar to this. No ice cream though.

    Thanks for linking up with Fitness Friday!

    1. That would be the perfect holiday treat, Jill!

  3. OMG! These look delicious. And I love cinnamon.
    I rarely cook myself and sweeties is not that much my thing (except for chocolate, of course). Just give me a bowl oatmeal and I am a happy person. :)

    1. I wish I didn't like sweets, Debbie! I love cinnamon, too - that's why these rolls were a hit for me. Oddly, my husband despises cinnamon... guess there are just more rolls for me then :)

  4. hey there! I love cinnamon rolls! What a fun recipe! I have never seen rolls with ice cream? Fun! Nice to see you! Hope you are doing well!


  6. Congrats again, Amy! Enjoy all the loveliness. I will never forget the first week with our second. SOOOoo special. I just loved it. And, these are like snickerdoodle cinnamon rolls! Ingenious, lady. And, they look sooo fluffy. Take care : )
