Mini King Cakes

Ingredients:

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
6 Tbsp sugar
Food coloring

Directions:

Roll and elongate each individual roll between your hands until it’s about 6 inches long and thick straw-looking. Take two of these “ropes” of dough and wind them together before forming them into a closed circle. Bake according to roll directions and top when done with included icing.

To make the colored sugar, just add 2 drops of food coloring into individual bowls with 2 tablespoons of sugar each. For purple, use one drop of blue and one drop of red. Sprinkle the festive colored sugar on top of the icing to your liking.

Commentary: Making your own king cakes probably doesn’t get any easier than this. Happy Carnival!
