Cinnamon Roll Ice Cream Bowls

Makes 4
1 12.4-oz. can store-bought spiral cinnamon rolls
Ice cream and your favorite toppings, for serving

1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Flip a standard size nonstick muffin tin over so that it’s upside down.
2. Unwrap each cinnamon roll to create a flat strip of dough, then rewrap them around the inverted muffin tins, starting at the base and working up (you will use two rolls per bowl.) Pinch the seams together to prevent them from falling apart.
3. Bake until golden brown and cooked through, 10-12 minutes.
4. Let cool slightly then remove the bowls and serve with your favorite ice cream and toppings.
