A few years back, I was introduced to Surprise Rolls at a family reunion. Not only are they super easy and made from 3 simple ingredients, but they are absolutely delicious. I decided to make a batch of Surprise Rolls the other night with the intent of bringing them to a neighbor; my husband and I ended up eating the entire batch all by ourselves in one night. Enjoy these delicious, easy, and highly addictive treats!
- I can of crescent roll dough
- 1 cup cinnamon sugar
- 15 caramel pieces
- Preheat the oven to 350
- Put a palm sized piece of crescent roll dough in your hand
- Place caramel in center of dough
- Roll dough into ball completely covering caramel
- Roll dough in cinnamon sugar (use a generous amount)
- Placed dough on greased cookie sheet
- Bake for 10 minutes
- Makes 15 surprise rolls
The fun thing about this recipe is that you can customize these rolls to your liking. If you’re not a caramel fan or wish to be creative, you can swap the piece of caramel for other delicious treats; Rolo’s, Hershey squares, chocolate kisses, miniature snickers, etc. You may also want to try baking these surprise rolls without cinnamon sugar and drizzling melted chocolate on top as they come out of the oven. For a sweeter dough, you may choose to use sugar cookie dough instead of crescent rolls; the possibilities truly are endless!
You will instantly fall with these easy Surprise Rolls as you sink your teeth into the sweet dough only to find a yummy surprise in the center. Enjoy!
