Warm cinnamon rolls and cheesecake made a baby and this Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Dip is that love child.

Sometimes I wonder why I’ve been given this evil gift of recipe development.

Usually, it’s a good thing. No, a great thing! Because I can come up with delicious dinners with very little food in my pantry. However, sometimes I come up with these kinds of ridiculous concoctions that I can’t NOT eat and they do absolutely nothing for my figure.

It’s literally the only hazard of this blogging job. Maybe I should start paying myself hazard pay. Can I even do that? Would I need OSHA to come out and inspect my…..kitchen? Recipes? –>these are the things I think about late at night when I type these posts out.

I’ll check with my accountant and report back. You’re welcome.

In other news, we only had one snow day last week! It still continues to snow though, so I’m doing everything I can to build up my fat stores for winter. *See this recipe, or scroll down below for today’s recipe*

Next year, I just might hibernate.

ANYWAYS, let me explain this recipe to you and why I love it so:

Unbaked Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Dip

You throw some canned cinnamon rolls around the edge of a cast iron skillet. Then you make a cream cheese/sugar mixture and spread it in the middle. And then because we all need the extra calories, I swirled in some cinnamon-brown sugar-butter.

Then you bake this sucker, take it out of the oven and behold its glory. Spread on that canned frosting to those cinnamon rolls and dig in.

I ate this with a fork because I didn’t want to burn my fingers {and I’m impatient}, but feel free to let it cool and get messy with it.

I guarantee if you like cinnamon rolls, you will DIE when you eat this. It makes a wonderful treat, whether it be breakfast or dessert. Be sure to print this recipe using the button below! It’s totally worth it 🙂

Have a great day, friends!!

    Did you miss a step (s)? You have the rolls in the pan, you a medium bowl mixture and asmall bowl mixture and you have combined the two into one bowl. And then you bake? Just the rolls or put the mixture into the center and then bake everything together? Not that one cannot derive that from the pictures, but . . .

      You put the rolls around the edges of your cast iron skillet, you add the cream cheese mixture into the center and then swirl in the butter sugar cinnamon mixture and bake all together. If you read the recipe card, it should be pretty straightforward.

    I did a twist on this recipe for my turn at the twelve dips of Christmas at work. I cut the baked rolls into 4 pieces and microrowaved the dip when I got to work. It was a hit!
