A TIK TOK INSPIRED BREAKFAST RECIPE

I’m a huge fan of Tik Tok. Yes I admit it that it has sucked me in. There are so many fun things that you can learn from it and one of those things are these tasty Tik Tok Cinnamon Rolls. With minimal ingredients, these are nearly effortless with an outcome that you might not expect from canned cinnamon rolls. These cinnamon rolls will soon become one of your favorite recipes. They truly turn out just like those thick, gooey cinnamon rolls at the bakery!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I use any other type of cinnamon roll?

This recipe works best with Grand’s and that is the original recipe. I have not tried it with any other brand of cinnamon rolls. If you can find a similar size large cinnamon roll like Grand’s then it should be safe to use those.

Do I have to make the icing?

This is a nice jazzed up icing. If you do not want to make your own you can use the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls themselves.

Is there anything I can add to these rolls?

For a slightly different texture and flavor you can add chopped pecans or walnuts to the brown sugar mixture before baking.

Can I use a different flavor of cinnamon roll?

Yes, you can use any flavor of the Grand’s Cinnamon Rolls that you’d like. Sometimes you can find Blueberry or Strawberry flavors. Just make sure that you are using 2 (5 count) cans.

Do I have to cover my rolls while baking?

Yes, this is an important step. This helps the rolls bake evenly and not get too brown on top before they are done. However, if they still seem a bit raw after cooking for 30 minutes, remove the foil and continue cooking until done.

How do I know when they are done?

I suggest about a 30 minute baking time but it could take a bit longer. Oven times do vary. The rack that you cook it on and the type of pan you use can all affect baking times. Stick a toothpick or a small knife into the center to judge if they are throughly baked. If it still looks a little raw, continue baking without the aluminum foil on top. Keep in mind these are a gooey type cinnamon roll though so they are meant to have a fairly soft center so use your best judgement on how well-done you want them. 

How do I store leftovers?

You can store these covered in the pan at room temperature where they will keep for 1-2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days.

HOW TO MAKE TIK TOK CINNAMON ROLLS:

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Place the 10 cinnamon rolls into the dish. Set aside the cans of icing that come with the cinnamon rolls for later. Pour the heavy cream over the cinnamon rolls and in between each one.

Cover the pan with foil and place in the oven. Bake for about 30-40 minutes (or until cooked through.) Oven times do vary (see my notes in the recipe card below). Remove the rolls from the oven and set aside while preparing the icing.

In a medium bowl add the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter and the 4 ounces of cream cheese. Microwave for 30 seconds just until the butter and cream cheese are very soft. Whisk the butter and cream cheese together until well combined. Add in the 2 containers of icing that come with the cinnamon rolls. Whisk in the powdered sugar.

Note: You don’t have to make the additional icing. You could just only using the icing from the canned cinnamon rolls. However, we find that icing just isn’t enough so added this extra icing to the recipe.

Serve and enjoy!

    Yummy and sweet, made my morning. But I didn’t have grands so I used the smaller size and reduced the liquid. Turned out great

    I love these. I’ve made them several times in the last year, each time months apart (aka forgetting this cruitial bit-) These definitely take longer than 30 minutes. I halved the recipe completely, did 35 minutes, and discovered after they’d been sitting on my counter almost 30 minutes that they are completely raw in the middle. This was on an edge piece, so not the middle of the pan. I would plan for minimum 45 min, and expect up to 60 even for a full recipe.

    I have tried it with several different brands and they all turned out great! I even used the frozen Rhodes cinnamon rolls which I think is my favorite. Some you just have to cook a bit longer.

  4. HI. Could you put everything together without cooking and give as a gift with the icing in a separate container?
    Thanks for this recipe!

  5. 5 stars
    These are incredibly TASTY! Your instructions are perfectly written! I halved the recipe because I only had one can of rolls and they looked and tasted DELISH!

    Loved loved loved this. I fixed it for family dinner tonight and everybody really liked it. I left off the extra butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar. I did sprinkle on some pecans. Everybody thought it was as sweet enough. Will definitely make this again.

  7. These rolls need more than 30 minutes of baking time. Maybe take the foil off at 30 minutes and bake for another 10. Anyway, at 30 minutes they were largely raw
