I just adore this time of year, because we get to celebrate Easter, and family, and love…..AND we get to abuse PEEPS!
Yeah…I’m pretty sure I get way more pleasure out of this than I should…but oh well! I’ve never been a big PEEPS fan anyway, so this is extra fun for me! Not to mention that this particular PEEP abuse, makes them totally AMAZING, and it makes me actually love them~ it’s a dysfunctional, damaging love, but love it is!! 😉
Fried Cinnamon Roll fluff balls are filled and bursting with ooey-gooey, melty PEEPS.
Thanks to the blistering, hot oil, those poor little things didn’t feel a thing..lol!
If you can imagine a Cinnamon Roll doughnut filled with sticky sweet melty Marshmallows~ then you can pretty much understand how epic these are! Make a huge batch and just sit back and watch everyone LOVE those PEEPS!
What you’ll need for 16 perfectly puffy and pretty fried PEEPS:
1 container of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls (8 count)
PEEPS…one per each dough ball
Powdered Sugar for dusting…optional
Oil for frying~ I used Canola
Cut each Cinnamon Roll in half…(unless you’re using the smaller Cinnamon Rolls, then leave them whole) , Roll out each half gently using a dash of flour if necessary…Place a poor helpless PEEP in the center and work that Cinnamon Roll dough around it until it’s sealed completely…
Make sure they’re all sealed up…
Now, in a medium pot, fry them up one at a time in the oil. Just until the dough is golden on both sides, some of the PEEPS might ooze out a little bit, and that’s just fine…they’re only trying to escape. They will firm up as they cool slightly! 🙂
Make sure to serve them nice and warm!
Pop one into your mouth asap…and you will love those PEEPS from now on! ~Enjoy! 🙂
