The viral TikTok version trending is two different versions, one with chai powder to give it the extra flavor, and one without.

Could you use a different cinnamon roll for this recipe?

Of course you can use your favorite store bought cinnamon roll and if you’ve got the craving to make your own homemade, go for it! We have only made this recipe with our favorite store-bought Trader Joe’s brand, making it a lot quicker for everyone to enjoy!

How do the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls taste?

Aaaaamazing! The closest we’ve gotten to at home in terms of taste, but these are also the perfect texture, soft and gooey. Everyone loved them! 

We were a little worried with all the heavy cream that they might be soggy and not cook thoroughly but to our surprise, they did. They came out of the oven moist and delicious!

Cinnabon Copycat Cinnamon Rolls – Ingredients:

How do you make the Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Grease or butter your baking pan, bottom and sides.

Place the cinnamon rolls in a round, high sided cake pan or a large baking dish.

Pour the heavy whipping cream in between each of the rolls.

Melt butter and combine in a bowl with the brown sugar, stir until mixed well. 

Spread butter/brown sugar mixture onto cinnamon rolls evenly. 

Bake in oven for 30 minutes. 

Remove from oven once lightly browned and top with icing included with the cinnamon rolls. 

For the tastiest cinnamon rolls, serve warm. 

Tips: The rolls expand more than the usual with store bought rolls, so make sure to leave room in between each roll for both expansion and the heavy cream. 

I highly recommend doubling this recipe, it’s that good and especially for more than 4 people.
