Pillsbury Bake-Off Countdown: Chocolate and Caramel-Cinnamon Roll Skewers

Image: Pillsbury Bake-OffCakeSpy Note: I am beyond ecstatic to announce that I have been invited as a media guest to the 45th Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off in Orlando, Florida! The event will take place in late March; til then, I am going to feature several of the sweets finalists here in anticipation of the big day!

Everything tastes better on a stick.

But some things on a stick taste better than others. For instance, Chocolate and Caramel-Cinnamon Roll Skewers. Do you really need to hear much more than the name to know what I mean?

This is a finalist in the Bake-off, created by Frances Blackwelder of Grand Junction, Colorado, who says "Do cinnamon rolls one better. Skewer them and drizzle with caramel, chocolate and icing for a most indulgent treat!".

Here's the recipe. 

Chocolate and Caramel-Cinnamon Roll Skewers


  • 1can Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Supreme refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 5 (12- or 10-inch) wooden skewers
  • 25 caramels, unwrapped (from 14-oz bag)
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 3/4 cup Chopped Pecans
  • 3/4 cup milk chocolate baking chips
  • 1 teaspoon Vegetable Oil


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or spray with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Separate dough into 5 rolls; reserve icing. Unroll each roll into a strip; thread each strip onto wooden skewer. Place on cookie sheet.
  2. Bake 13 to 19 minutes or until golden brown. Place piece of waxed paper under cooling rack. Transfer skewers from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
  3. Meanwhile, in 2-quart saucepan over low heat, heat caramels and milk, stirring occasionally, until caramels are melted. Place pecans on piece of waxed paper. Generously drizzle caramel mixture lengthwise over cinnamon roll strips; roll in pecans. Return to cooling rack.
  4. In small resealable freezer plastic bag, place chocolate chips and oil; seal bag. Microwave on High 15 to 25 seconds or until softened. Gently squeeze bag until chocolate is smooth; cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle chocolate crosswise over cinnamon roll strips.
  5. Place reserved icing in small resealable freezer plastic bag; seal bag. Microwave on High 10 seconds or until softened. Gently squeeze bag until icing is smooth; cut off tiny corner of bag. Squeeze bag to drizzle icing crosswise over cinnamon roll skewers. Serve warm.
