I have seriously been dying to share this recipe with you all! I had the concept for it about two months ago and then experimenting ensued. When I finally had something I was totally in love with, I just had to get around to taking pictures which was proving a bit difficult as we kept eating this at night as a dessert. But anyways now IT’S HERE! And I am so excited.

Because fondue is just the best. It’s fun to do with family, at a party, during a game (hint. football!), or errr absolutely by myself. Which by the way, I totally had a solo cinnamon roll fondue party at 9:30 AM the other day while the babe was sleeping and I finally had a chance to take these pictures. It was awesome.

There is nothing better than shoveling down miniature sugary cinnamon rolls dipped dredged in a super thick sugary fondue and calling that breakfast. I speak from experience on this one. (If only every breakfast could be like that.)

Except I would seriously miss my pumpkin overnight oats, chocolate granola, and no bake breakfast cookies. Wow…making that short list makes it seem like all I do eat is dessert for breakfast. But life is is meant to be enjoyed aaaand those options do happen to be (secretly) healthy so why not!? So it’s settled. Dessert for breakfast everyday!

Crockpot cinnamon roll fondue with 20-minute no rise miniature cinnamon rolls!So let’s talk about making this delicious dessert. Or we are calling it breakfast now? Okay! Hopefully the few step-by-step pictures above help. It’s pretty basic recipe – the miniature cinnamon rolls are super quick and easy to make.

The “cinnamon rolls” are just regular buttermilk biscuits that have been dipped in melted butter and then in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Once you shake off the excess cinnamon-sugar mixture you roll it from one side to the next (left to right or right to left) and then take the other end and roll it up to create a miniature cinnamon roll. Those miniature rolls get placed in a well-greased miniature muffin tin and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until cooked through to your preference. I like them a little gooey so I tend to under-bake them a bit πŸ™‚

This dessert is best when the cinnamon rolls are still hot, so I like to wait until the fondue has about 30 minutes left and then whip up the cinnamon rolls. If you make the cinnamon rolls in advance. you may want to experiment re-heating them so they are still warm when dipped in the fondue. They aren’t bad cold, just not near as good!

Crockpot cinnamon roll fondue with 20-minute no rise miniature cinnamon rolls!The fondue is just four ingredients – powdered sugar, cream cheese, vanilla, and butter. Those get beat together and then poured into a glass or ceramic bowl that is heat proof. Then place the bowl in your slow cooker on low heat and cover the slow cooker for about 2 hours stirring the fondue occasionally. No need to add any water to the slow cooker, just make sure the fondue is in a separate bowl in the slow cooker. How easy is that fondue?! And the whole recipe for that matter?

I looooove easy and delicious recipes – and this one fits both categories! Plus – cinnamon rolls and fondue. <3

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Fondue

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese at room temperature, full-fat
  • 1/2 cup butter at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Miniature Cinnamon Rolls

  • 2 packages regular-sized Buttermilk Biscuits not grands
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • For the fondue, beat the cream cheese (that has been at room temperature) until completely smooth. Beat in the room temperature butter (do not melt) and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.
  • Slowly beat in the powdered sugar until completely combined.
  • Transfer the mixture to a heat-safe glass or ceramic bowl or dish that will fit into your slow cooker.
  • Place the bowl or dish filled up with the fondue mixture in the slow cooker. Place the lid over the slow cooker and place on low for 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours stirring occasionally.
  • When ready to serve, either leave it in the slow cooker to keep it warm, or pull it out and transfer to another dish.
  • Time the cinnamon rolls to be done when the fondue will be done for best results!
  • For the cinnamon rolls, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a miniature muffin tin with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Remove the biscuits from the package and roll each one out with a rolling pin to get it a little bit wider/larger.
  • In a small bowl, melt the butter. In another small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon (Add more cinnamon if desired).
  • Dip each biscuit in the melted butter, shake off the excess and then dip and cover it in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Shake off the excess.
  • Roll from left to right to form a long tube. Then roll from bottom to top to form a miniature cinnamon roll.
  • Place each one in it's own cavity in the miniature muffin tin. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the biscuits are no longer gooey and are baked through. (I like to under-bake them slightly, but do what you prefer).
  • Place the baked cinnamon rolls on popsicle sticks, or cinnamon sticks and dip into the fondue mixture.
  • This dessert is best when the cinnamon rolls are hot/fresh out of the oven!

  1. Oh my gosh!!! These are amazing Chelsea! Cream cheese fondue? Mini Cinnamon Rolls? In a slow cooker? Best breakfast idea ever!!! I would totally be having a fondue party for one too as soon as my kiddos take their nap. Pinning, I love love love this idea!

  2. Knock me over with a feather!!!!! Seriously Chelsea – these are my newest favorite dessert ever! Not only are they adorable, but simple to make and dippable too? You have out-done yourself. I can see why you are so excited to share it. Excuse my enthusiasm, but pinned, pinned, PINNED!!!

  3. Can you explain more why it needs to be in a separate bowl inside the slow cooker? I have a mini crackpot that’s the perfect size for sauces and fondue, but putting an extra bowl in there wouldn’t work. And could I make this on the stove, or does it turn out better if it heats slowly in a cockpot? Since you did some experimenting, maybe you can share the wisdom. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh a miniature crockpot would work perfectly!! The bowl inside the crockpot is for regular sized crockpots since the mixture is too small it would burn if put in a large crockpot. and yes you could heat it over the stove just do it on low and stir very frequently until heated through. Then you would probably want to transfer to your small crockpot just to keep it warm while serving. Hope that helps!

  4. Girl, you are BRILLIANT!! Just the title alone had me drooling… And then your gorgeous photos made everything worse. (Or better? Well, you get my point!) As much as I’d like to consider cinnamon rolls a breakfast food, I try to save them for dessert like you instead. The earlier in the day I eat sugar, the more I crave it, and as a baking blogger… Just bad news. But I’d totally break that rule and have a 9:30 AM cinnamon roll party with you! πŸ™‚ Pinned!

    I saw this yesterday morning and had to have it. We did this last night for dessert and it was amazing!! One of the most fun desserts ever and the flavors were spot on. I love the fondue it’s rich and perfect on the mini cinnamon rolls

  6. You have got to be kidding me. This is why I can’t come to your site, Chelsea! THIS … IS … WHY! Just kidding, I’m here everyday. πŸ˜‰ But seriously, how did you even come up with this!? I’m making this immediately and I’m eating it all by myself … for breakfast. πŸ˜‰ PINNED!

    This looks delish! I was wondering…..if you have a larger slow cooker, you warm the icing, put it in a mason jar, put that in the slow cooker to keep warm, then put the already baked rolls in the slow cooker (beside the icing) with little picks or recommended popsicle sticks, if that would work and i would think solve the issue of keeping both warm. i’m thinking of serving this to a larger group of women. mmmm…….i’m trying this real soon.

    1. I LOVE the idea of keeping it all warm together!! My only thought is the cinnamon rolls might get a little soggy from the slow cooker condensation, but hopefully I’m wrong! I’d love to hear the results πŸ™‚ Thanks for the comment Grace!

      1. I ended up testing out the idea for my MOPS group. I preheated my crockpot, lined it with a paper towel to collect moisture, made the icing using the microwave and put it in a glass container (with a lid) that fit half of my crockpot nicely, put the mini cinnamon rolls in the other half of the crockpot space (baked the night before a tad more that you suggested just in case they got moist), put a paper towel over the whole thing followed by the crockpot lid and went off to my MOPS meeting. When I got there, everything was nice and warm…..stuck some long picks in some of the rolls (so they get the point) and it was a hit! They never got soggy. Thanks for the idea!

        1. You are awesome!!! Thanks so much for coming back and letting everyone know how it worked!! I’m sure your comment will help some people that wanted to try that πŸ™‚ so glad you liked this and thanks again! Great idea with the paper towels!

  8. Hi! This looks amazing and I am literally drooling! Haha but I was wondering if this could be done on the stove or in the oven if you are crunched for time? Thank you!

    1. For sure! I would just combine the icing ingredients in a small pot on the stovetop and stir until completely smooth πŸ™‚

    I made this for my daughter’s 13th birthday party paint night and sleepover and it was a huge hit! Out of the 3 fondues that I made, this was the only one that was completely gone at the end of the night (bummer because I was hoping to have some for breakfast!). I didn’t have time to make the cinnamon rolls do i just served it with French toast sticks and cinnamon waffles that I cut into bite sized pieces. It was so good and worked great in my triple mini crock pot. Thank you so much for the recipe! I can’t wait to try it with the cinnamon rolls!
