How to Make Cinnamon Rolls Using King’s Hawaiian Rolls

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Prepare Your Ingredients:
Start by ensuring that your butter, cream cheese, and cream cheese are at room temperature. This will make them easier to work with and incorporate into your recipe. Use melted butter for the filling and softened butter for the topping.
Make the Cinnamon Filling:
In a mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon. Mix until all the ingredients are well combined and you have a smooth cinnamon filling.
Slice the King’s Hawaiian Rolls:
Take your King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls out of the packaging leaving them together. Slice the entire loaf in half horizontally. This will create a top and a bottom layer.
Place the bottom layer of buns into the prepared baking dish.
Spread the Cinnamon Filling:
Using a butter knife or a pastry brush, generously spread half of the cinnamon filling mixture onto the cut side of the bottom layer. Make sure to spread it evenly and all the way to the edges.

Reassemble the Rolls:
Place the top halves of the rolls back on top of the cinnamon-covered bottoms, creating sandwich-like structures. Spread the remaining cinnamon filling on top of the rolls all the way to the edges.
Bake the Cinnamon Rolls:
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown and the cinnamon filling is gooey and bubbling.

Make the Cream Cheese Frosting:
While the cinnamon rolls are baking, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a separate bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, softened butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and creamy.
Add the powdered sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of milk into the bowl. Beat until smooth. You can add more milk for a thinner consistency if desired.
Frost the Cinnamon Rolls:
Once the cinnamon rolls are out of the oven and slightly cooled, generously drizzle or spread the cream cheese frosting over the top of each roll. The warmth of the rolls will help the frosting melt slightly, creating a delectable glaze.

Serve and Enjoy:
Your almost homemade King’s Hawaiian Roll Cinnamon Rolls are now ready to be enjoyed! Serve them warm and watch as they disappear in no time.
