Love warm cinnamon rolls? 😋

If you’re like me and already dreaming of fall and of course all the delicious baking involved, consider making a pan of gooey Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls! This recipe uses a roll of pre-made bread dough from the freezer section of the grocery store for convenience, and can easily be assembled in minutes!

Chopped apples and caramel baking chips give these cinnamon rolls such a delicious FALL flavor, but you could also use a caramel sauce or pieces of caramel candy instead. Make sure to chop your apples pretty small so they get nice and tender in the oven.

This method for making cinnamon rolls is dangerously simple! 

It just involves rolling out the defrosted dough, adding the filling, rolling it all up in a tube, then cutting your cinnamon rolls to bake.

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from

These are definitely sweet enough on their own, but you can drizzle caramel over the top or make a cream cheese frosting. I simply melted about half a cup of additional caramel baking chips and a small amount of butter in the microwave, then drizzled over the top of my cinnamon rolls after they came out of the oven.


Is it okay to eat two of these for lunch!? Asking for a friend. ☺ Enjoy!
