You guys, I just made the best thing the other day and I didn’t even plan on sharing anything today.  After making this Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole, I knew I had to get it in before my favorite holiday of the season.  It seriously melts in your mouth and I can’t stop thinking about it ever since I made it! These babies would be great for any holiday (think Christmas or Easter) or a weekend breakfast or brunch alongside this Egg and Sausage Buttermilk Biscuit Casserole.

I’m so glad you’re here! Follow along on Pinterest for more inspiration!

I normally make most of my food from scratch, but I have said before how much I love a good shortcut.  There is definitely a time and a place for them, right? Those times happen a lot during the holidays when you’re making 394929285 dishes at once. This Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole uses one of those shortcuts by using store-bought cinnamon rolls.  Honestly, I did not expect to love this casserole as much as I did! Who wants to spend their time baking on Christmas morning when there are presents to be opened and family to spend time with?

These cinnamon buns are cut into quarters and then stirred together with a mixture of eggs, maple syrup, spices, and cream. It bakes up to perfection right in the slow cooker and is topped with the icing and served warm.  I can not say enough about what a huge fan I am of this delicious idea and I love crock pot recipes!

Simple, delicious, Gooey Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole recipe is sure to be a favorite for breakfast, brunch, the holidays or when you want breakfast for dinner! Your family will adore this!

As is true for any cinnamon roll recipe, they can be a suitable breakfast or dessert. I mean, I’m a huge advocate of eating dessert any time of the day I darn well please. Cinnamon buns are appropriate for the morning or night. I think this casserole would be the best when having company or house guests for the holidays! It only cooks for a couple of hours, so you can easily whip it up in the morning and cook it while preparing your other breakfast food. This Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole is so quick to just throw together and you’ll have a delicious treat in no time at all. You may just have a new favorite holiday tradition!

    Shortcuts are so necessary, for real! This looks deliciously dangerous, my friend! It would be super hard to resist…those rolls look so soft and tender. Mmmmm!

    Wondering what size crock pot you used? I am thinking of doubling the recipe to feed more people. Will that work in an 8 qt crock pot? Thanks in advance.

    • December 14, 2016 at 7:21 PM #

      Mine was 6 quart and if was only about half full!

        Was it soggy in the middle. How long did you cook it for? I just don’t want to be soggy.

    What setting on the crockpot is it on high or low?

    • December 15, 2016 at 11:10 AM #

      You cook it on low per the directions. Enjoy!

    Looks so yummy! Going to try for Christmas morning as I typically do cinnamon rolls any way! Have you ever cooked on high for 1hour?

    • December 15, 2016 at 11:11 AM #

      I think that could work but I would just be afraid of the rolls drying out. Just make sure you turn it to warm as soon as the dough is cooked! Enjoy!

    Do you have a specific kind of cinnamon rolls that you use? Looks great!

    • December 16, 2016 at 3:36 PM #

      Any Rolls or Buns from a can will work! I used the store brand at my grocery store, but Pillsbury will work too.

    Can you bake in a pan instead of a crock pot?

    • December 17, 2016 at 2:08 PM #

      Yes you can but I just don’t know how long since I haven’t done it

    Ashley, can we prepare this ahead of time–like the night before?

    • December 17, 2016 at 2:12 PM #

      I would mix the liquid together but not pour it over the cinnamon rolls until you’re ready to cook it. Otherwise the rolls will soak up too much of the liquid.

    What can you have to use nutmeg.

    So in the video is shows “jumbo” rolls but the recipe calls for 12oz cans ( which is regular ). Can you please clarify? I suck at making things like this and would love to surprise my hubby.

    • December 19, 2016 at 6:44 PM #

      I have made it both ways before! The jumbo really aren’t much bigger, so if still worked (there is still enough liquid). Regular size is perfect though!

    It’s Christmas morning, so I thought this would be a good idea because we have church today (husband has to leave early – Assoc. Pastor). I did use the “Grands” size rolls but this doesn’t look close to done after 2 hours on low. I used my newest, large crock pot that normally cooks things quickly. So, just fair warning if you use larger rolls. I’m sure it will taste great, just not sure if we’ll be having it for breakfast or lunch.

      Update: After 3 hours it looked like the cinnamon rolls might finally be set (at 2 1/2 hours they were still doughy), but we had to leave for church, so I turned it to “keep warm”. 90 minutes later it’s a little overdone, but tasty. Will try again when I don’t have to go somewhere to figure out the cooking time needed.

    I was sooo excited to make this for Christmas morning and it smelled so amazing, but at the 2 hour mark, it was still raw and runny…Barely cooked at the edges. I kept cooking it and cooking it and even 1 hour later, the cinnamon rolls in the middle were still raw and it was just barely cooked on the edges. I followed the recipe as written and used the regular size cinnamon rolls. Now, at almost 4 hours, it is burning on the edges and the bottom but not totally done in the middle. Not quite sure what I did incorrectly. The parts that are not burned or not cooked are totally delicious, though!

    Can regular milk be substituted for the heavy cream? I dont use that product and I dont feel like buying a whole carton just for 1/2 cup, also the heavy cream makes me sick.

    • December 28, 2016 at 8:27 PM #

      You can try milk. Not sure if will work
      as well because it’s not as thick.

        How about Evaporated or Sweetened Condensed milk? I never have heavy cream either. Thanks

    I would like to know if you can make a double batch in the crockpot? I made this for breakfast at church but it wasn’t a lot & it was gone fast!

    We made this tonight and it was really yummy. I used a 4 qt slow cooker. At the 2 hour mark, the edges were cooked but the center wasn’t, so I stirred it and cooked it for another 20 mins. It was still slightly under cooked in some areas but my husband and teenage boys inhaled it anyways.

    I want to make a double batch of this. how long would you recommend cooking a double batch for?

    • May 10, 2017 at 9:36 AM #

      It depends on your crock Pot, but I would give it maybe an extra hour or so? Just make sure it’s done in the middle.
