Cinnamon, Sugar & Cocoa Cinnamon Rolls

Who says cinnamon rolls have to be made inside? These cinnamon rolls taste even better made over a fire and seasoned with your favorite sweetening blend. Check out the full recipe below.

**Servings:** 4-6 People

**Prep:** 10 minutes

**Cook:** 20 minutes

What You'll Need:

  • Cinnamon Roll Dough (store-bought or homemade recipe recommended)
  • 1 10-inch cast iron pan
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages crescent dough sheets
  • ⅓ cup Heavy whipping cream
  • Sweetener of your choice

Ingredients for the Filling:

  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup butter
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Maple flavor


  1. Open dough packages and unroll them to make a flat rectangular shape.
  2. Brush heavy whipping cream onto crescent sheets.
  3. Heavily sprinkle your chosen sweetener over the cream layer.
  4. Slowly roll up the sheets and cut into 1 ½ inch long pieces, placing them into the cast iron skillet so that it looks like the photo (refer to the recipe image for reference).
  5. Transfer the cast iron skillet onto the grill.
  6. Place a lid over the skillet to trap heat.
  7. Using tongs, place hot coals from the fire on top of the lid to create an oven effect.
  8. Meanwhile, place a small pot on a heat-resistant surface and add the sugar, cream, butter, and salt. Stir regularly to prevent it from burning at the bottom.
  9. Once it's reached boiling point, boil for 1 minute, remove from heat and add maple extract.
  10. After 25 minutes or once your cinnamon rolls are slightly golden on top, remove from heat, pour the maple filling on top, and enjoy!
