Super easy and very tasty! I had a tube of cinnamon rolls on had, and this was the perfect thing to dress them up. Would be great for a quick breakfast for overnight guests, as it takes no prep time at all.

My teenaged son & 2 of his friends made this recipe and loved spite of the fact that one of them "hates anything with cream cheese in it", they all loved it! It was easy for them to make, and they thought it was very good. Thanks for a fun & simple recipe!
