Stuffed Cinnamon Roll Bites

A few months ago I entered the Pillsbury bake-off challenge. Quite a bit of time has passed and I haven’t heard anything, I am assuming that my recipe did not make the cut. I didn’t share my recipe originally because I had high hopes that I would make finals, but obviously I was wrong..haha. Luckily, I know that my recipe was delicious and now I can share it with all of you to make at home. I would also like to let Pillsbury know that they are missing out!

This recipe combines three great dessert components- cinnamon buns, pudding and fruit. I love cinnamon rolls and I am always up for finding a new exciting recipe for them. If you haven’t yet, you should also check out my Buttermilk Biscuit Cinnamon Buns; those are seriously to-die-for. These stuffed cinnamon roll bites are a great way to impress guests, perfect for a holiday treat… or anytime really.

    Oh man, all that yummy goodness stuffed inside!

  2. Well boo on Pillsbury! You would think they would send out letters or email-something to let you know or at least thank you for participating if you did not win. You may still get something-just about the time you have forgotten that you ever participated.
    I think that the filling idea here is genius and no doubt delicious! I would like to thank you, instead of Pillsbury, for creating this tasty treat and posting it here on your blog. Have a great day!

  6. Thats ok I wasnt contacted either. I am sure your cinnamon roll bites were as good as they looked. Thanks for sharing with us. Oh well there is always next time right? Oh what to do with that million dollar prize?

  7. Pillsbury doesn’t know what they are missing. I am just loving that you stuffed them with raspberries. You had me at that step. Great job!

  8. I have no idea why you didn’t win the Pillsbury Bake-Off let alone make the finals; this is the most brilliant idea I’ve ever seen! It sounds absolutely delicious & looks so impressive

  12. Yeah, Pillsbury is missing out. I love your idea of filling the raspberry filled cinnamon roll with vanilla pudding! That is a great combo, and it’s easy to make too. This makes an easy snack that can be made on a busy weeknite!
