Expert Tips

  • Be sure to spray waffle iron before making each waffle. The sugar from the cinnamon roll can make the waffles stick.
  • For smaller waffle makers, slightly roll out each cinnamon roll into a circle before placing in waffle maker.
  • Be creative with your fruit garnishes; sprinkles also work for decorations. Place icing into a piping bag or resealable bag for decorating, too.
  • Serve with maple syrup and whipped cream.
