My kids absolutely love these bite sized bits of cinnamon goodness. I think they love pulling them apart most of all, but it's a really special treat for us to enjoy together.
I love making Cinnamon Pull-Aparts or "monkey bread". We have it for breakfast on special occasions, like birthdays. But I'm terrible at thinking ahead and preheating the oven, or waking up early to thaw out dough. So, when I saw that Rhodes has new microwave cinnamon rolls, I knew they would be perfect for microwave cinnamon pull-aparts. And I was right! These are delicious!

1 package microwave cinnamon rolls with icing (6 cinnamon rolls) ½ cup brown sugar ¼ cup butter, melted
Start by cutting your cinnamon rolls into quarters. I like to let them sit out for 10 or 15 minutes so they aren't so hard to cut, but you still want them frozen. I used kitchen scissors to cut my cinnamon rolls, and it worked like a charm. Once you have your cinnamon rolls quartered, you'll sprinkle brown sugar on top. And drizzle some melted butter on top of that. Then stir it all together until the cinnamon roll pieces are coated with brown sugar and butter. Then place your coated cinnamon roll pieces into a microwave safe dish and microwave at full power for about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove your pull-aparts from the microwave and drizzle with the icing included in the package. Or you could dish up single servings and let each person drizzle their own icing on top (this is my kids' favorite part). And that's it! You have a yummy breakfast or treat in just a few minutes.
