Holy toledo’s batman! Warning: these cinnamon rolls will make you mouth water, yearning for more after just one bite! Cinnamon rolls are pretty much one of my favorite treats ever (I know, I say that about every treat!) These weren’t too terribly difficult to make – just add a little patience after you make the dough and you will be good. The frosting makes theses absolutely divine!!! You better have somewhere to take these once you make them, otherwise – if you are like me – you will eat them all yourself!
