Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites
Sometimes you want a treat that you can make in minutes and has very few ingredients. That is exactly what you’re going to love about these Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites!
With only two ingredients, this is the kind of easy dessert that you can have on-hand at any time and make them as needed. These are extremely close to elephant ear desserts, but with a cinnamon roll twist.
Grab a tube of your favorite brand of store bought cinnamon rolls and have some sugar on-hand to make this treat. You’ll need some vegetable oil or canola oil for frying, but that’s it! Even better, you’ll be ready to eat in about 25 minutes!

Cinnamon Roll Bites Recipe
8 ct Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls (any flavor you choose)
1 cup granulated sugar
4 cups vegetable oil (for frying)
Line a large plate with a few pieces of paper towel and set it aside. Pulling out a large pot with a heavy bottom, measure and add in your vegetable oil.
Set the stovetop to high and allow it heat for 7-10 minutes (Caution: this will be very hot even though it won’t be boiling without food added!). You can also use a candy thermometer to measure for 350 degrees F.
Cut your cinnamon roll dough into quarters so that you have 32 pieces.
Carefully add about 8 pieces of dough into your vegetable oil (pieces will separate) and fry for about 2 minutes or until golden brown.
Using a mesh skimmer, remove your deep fried cinnamon roll pieces and set them on the paper towel lined plate.
Repeat these steps until you’ve cooked all of your dough.
Once done, roll each piece in a bowl of sugar and set them on your serving plate. Pour the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls into a small dish, dip, and enjoy!
