King’s Hawaiian Cinnamon Rolls Magic-Making Process

1. Fire Up the Oven and Butter the Cooking Sheet

Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. In the meantime, butter your baking dish to ensure that your cinnamon rolls don’t stick and come off perfectly with a sun-kissed golden hue. 

2. The Honey Butter!

The honey butter elevates the flavors of the cinnamon roll to new levels. It adds a unique floral sweetness and a luscious, velvety texture. All the ingredients come together to create a flavor symphony.

The sweetness of the honey balances the richness of the butter for a well-rounded flavor. Soften the butter so the rest of the ingredients blend in seamlessly.

Vanilla extract brings in warmth and adds depth to the sweetness of the honey. Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well mixed. 

3. Prep the Cinnamon Roll

King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls are the heart and soul of this recipe. They are packed with the authentic spirit of aloha. They bring warmth and joy to every table they are served.

The sweet and fluffy rolls also add a tropical touch to the classic cinnamon roll. They are like a blank canvas ready to be painted with brushstrokes of sugar, cinnamon, and honey butter. They absorb all the flavors, ensuring each bite is a delicious treat. Use a serrated knife to make a clean cut halfway through the interconnected rolls. 

Brush a generous amount of the honey butter on the inner sides of the sliced sweet rolls. Then sprinkle a mixture of sugar and cinnamon over it and replace the top roll. The cinnamon infuses the dish with warm and spicy notes. 

4. Bake

The preheated oven transforms the already delightful pack of King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls into a symphony of flavors and aromas. Within 20-25 minutes of cooking time, the heat initiates a chemical process of caramelization that results in a golden brown, crispy exterior and even more sweetness. It also turns the honey butter into a gooey, mouthwatering glaze.

5. The Grand Finale

Now, add a finishing touch to the cinnamon rolls. Make a drizzle by mixing powdered sugar and milk to the desired consistency. Pour this over the rolls for an even more beautiful presentation and added sweetness.

6. Serve Warm

Cinnamon rolls are best enjoyed warm. Each bite takes you on a journey into different layers, textures, and flavors. You’ll experience the soft, warm dough of the cinnamon rolls alongside the gooey texture of the honey butter. Each bite delivers pure irresistibility to brighten up each and every moment.
