Cinnamon rolls get the toasty treatment when wrapped around skewers and warmed over a fire. Brush with butter, then sprinkle with sugar and spice. —Lauren Knoelke, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tube (12.4 ounces) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Mix sugar and cinnamon. Remove icing from cinnamon rolls; transfer to a resealable plastic bag for drizzling.
  2. Separate rolls; cut each in half. Roll halves into 6-in. ropes. Wrap each rope tightly around a long metal skewer, beginning 1/2 in. from pointed end; pinch each end to secure.
  3. Cook rolls over a hot campfire until golden brown, about 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Brush with butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture. Cut a small hole in 1 corner of icing bag. Drizzle icing over twists.
