These Cinnamon Roll Ups are incredibly easy to make! You’ll want to get your kids in the kitchen to help.
I love when I find a recipe that is so easy I can have my son help in the kitchen. These Easy Cinnamon Roll Ups are just that…SUPER SIMPLE!
Some of the jobs that I gave my son while making this recipe were:
- Rolling the bread flat
- Mixing the cinnamon and sugar
- Stirring the cream cheese
- Coating the roll ups in cinnamon and sugar
And, if your children are older, you can even let them remove the crusts from the bread using a butter knife or pizza cutter.
It’s a good thing that these Cinnamon Roll Ups are so easy to make because they are extremely addicting!
I dare you to eat just one. It’s impossible. It just can’t be done.
Oh, and don’t throw the crusts away. I saved mine and coated them in the leftover butter and then tossed them with the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture and baked them. Totally delish!
You must put down your cell phone/table/computer right now and go make these! It only takes a few minutes…you can come back when you are done and thank me!
