Ingredients

  • 1 Can Biscuits
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Cook on low 2-3 hrs, I set a timer for 1 1/2 hours to start checking them, they finish fast and you can end up with burnt sugar on them if you don't watch them.

     

     

    Using oven gloves (I have the ones below and they work out great plus they are a great price ->here, plus since they are black they don't stain much) place a plate on top of your crock and flip the crock over so the cinnamon rolls flip out on to the plate

     

    Extreme Heat Resistant BBQ Oven Safety Gloves

     

    Place another plate over the cinnamon rolls and flip again so the soft part is on top to be iced

     

     

    Mix glaze ingredients (powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla)  in a small bowl (add more/less milk as needed) and pour over warm rolls.

     

     

    The taste is amazing and seriously they are so easy to make the kids do a lot of the work for it.

  2. Spray your crockpot with a non-stick cooking spray, I give this a spray because of the sugar cooking in the crockpot. 

  3. Roll your biscuits into balls for baking. 

  4. Melt your butter in a bowl in your microwave.

  5. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl.

  6. Roll your biscuit in the melted butter.

  7. Next using a fork to lift your buttered biscuit out of the bowl and into the bowl of brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.

  8. Roll the biscuit in the brown sugar cinnamon until well coated.

  9. Lift the covered biscuit with a fork and place it into the bottom of your crockpot.

  10. Once all the covered biscuits are in the crockpot you could top with pecans if desired. (My family isn't a fan of pecans)

     

  11. Cover the crockpot with a paper towel and then place the lid on top, this will help prevent condensation from dripping on the rolls while cooking.

  12. Cook on low 2-3 hrs, I set a time for 1 1/2 hours to start checking them, they finish fast and you can end up with burnt sugar on them if you don't watch them.
