These sizzling cinnamon rolls turned out to be mouthwatering. We made them for a cooking project and everyone was asking for more. You could serve this dish with ice cream as a dessert or with a old glass of milk for breakfast. The sizzling cinnamon rolls have a gooey cinnamon filling and a flakey dough with sweet frosting drizzled on the top. These mouthwatering cinnamon rolls are best served warm fresh out of the oven.
