Heart Attack on a Stick


I saw these on Pinterest and knew I had to try them. They aren't technically called a heart attack on a stick (but rather Chocolate and Carmel Cinnamon roll skewers), but once you see the calories (850 calories/skewer!!!!) you'll understand why someone called them this and why it's so fitting. :)

Unfortunately, they were pinned wrong, so I had to go searching for the correct recipe. But they looked really good...so I knew I had to find them!  I am so glad I searched. Here's where I found them. These were so dang delicious, I can't even begin to tell you. They are also so far from healthy, I can't begin to tell you either. But that's okay, just don't eat a whole one by yourself and it's not so bad (or do what I did and only eat half at a time and then you'll feel better about it...or just skip lunch...and maybe dinner too...to make up for the calories!)

Here's what you'll need:
1 can Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Supreme refrigerated cinnamon rolls
4 (12 or 10 in.) wooden skewers
25 caramels, unwrapped
1 T. milk
3/4 c. Milk Chocolate Chips
1 t. Vegetable Oil
chopped nuts (opt.)

What to do:
Heat the oven to 350. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray with some Pam. Separate the dough into 5 rolls. Unroll each roll into a strip and thread each strip onto the wooden skewer. Place on the cookie sheet.

Bake 13-19 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet and place on cooling racks. Put the parchment paper under the cooling cinnamon rolls...it's gonna get messy!

In a small saucepan, over low heat, heat the unwrapped caramels and milk until melted. Generously drizzle over the skewers. If you're using nuts, roll in the crushed nuts right now.

In a small freezer ziplock bag, microwave the chocolate chips in 30 second increments, until melted. Snip a corner off the bag and drizzle over the skewers as well.

Warm the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls and use a spoon or fork to drizzle it over the skewers as well.

Serve warm, and then devour. Very slowly and in small portions...so you don't make yourself sick by the yummy, chocolatey, carmel-y, frosted goodness.

Enjoy!

yumm.

I wonder if the calories would be less with a homemade dough? What do you think?
