  • 1 roll refrigerated cinnamon rolls not Grands, cut in half and rolled into balls
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/4 c cinnamon
  • 1/2 c sugar


  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees. Cut refrigerated cinnamon rolls in half and roll each one into a tight ball.
  • Melt butter in a small bowl. Pour cinnamon and sugar into a pint size baggie and shake to mix well.
  • Dip each rolled cinnamon roll into the butter so it is coated, then put into the baggie and shake so the outside is coated with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Spray air fryer basket with non stick spray and put coated pieced inside basket with room in between them (they will spread a bit). I put 8 pieces in at a time = half the container.
  • Close the lid and continue to air fry at 390 degrees for a total of 5-6 minutes, flipping them after minute 3. Check at minute 5 to see if yours are done through, if not use the last minute.
  • Put remaining sugar and cinnamon into a new baggie (the other one will be a bit wet). Take each one out one at a time and shake in new baggie to recoat with more sugar and cinnamon.
  • Drizzle or dip each one in frosting that came in your cinnamon roll container and enjoy.
