How to make cinnamon roll waffles step-by-step 

While your waffle iron preheats, remove the cinnamon rolls from the can.  Using your finger tips, gently press out each cinnamon roll until slightly flattened. 

Lightly spray the preheated waffle iron with a bit of nonstick spray. Working one or two at a time (depending on your waffle iron), place the flattened cinnamon rolls onto the waffle maker. 

Close the waffle maker; cook the cinnamon rolls for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned and cooked throughout.  Carefully remove each cinnamon roll waffle to a cooking rack or platter; repeat with the remaining cinnamon rolls.  

Warm the icing and drizzle it over the cinnamon roll waffles, then top each one with crumbled bacon and toffee; serve at once. 

Answers to Common Questions Asked About This Recipe

Which tools are helpful for making cinnamon roll waffles? 

Waffle maker – Like I said, you don’t need anything fancy! Just a simple, basic waffle maker works great.  I really love this heart-shaped waffle maker, too, and it’s inexpensive, as well.  (What a great gift it would make, eh?) 

Tongs – For lifting hot cinnamon roll waffles from the waffle maker, use some tongs to make the job lots easier.  

Bowl whisk – If you make extra icing for the cinnamon roll waffles, a bowl whisk is super handy for making sure the icing is smooth and lump-free.  

What if I prefer more icing on each waffle than what comes in the cinnamon roll can? 

Just mix up your favorite powdered sugar icing! I stir together powdered sugar, a tiny smidge of kosher salt, and vanilla; add water or milk until you reach the desired consistency – then just drizzle away! 

Can I freeze cinnamon roll waffles? How should I reheat them? 

Yep, cooked cinnamon roll waffles freeze perfectly.  To reheat, simply pop the frozen waffles into your toaster.  In minutes, you’ll have hot and fresh cinnamon roll waffles to enjoy.
