Campfire Cinnamon Rolls

I'm sorry I've been gone. I know there was no excuse. We have returned from vacation. We stayed on the shores of Lake Champlain in Vermont. It was beautiful. The kids went swimming, canoeing, and tubing. They ate marshmallows and ice cream. What a great time! Since we had a fire, I decided to try making orange infused cinnamon rolls. I covered most of the rolls and the inside was gooey. The kids didn't want me to change them. The ones I left the top part of the orange off were fluffy. I had to make one of the rolls without the top since the kids ate my orange. If I'm camping, I would make this easy recipe again.
Orange Infused Cinnamon Rolls (makes 8 rolls)
8 oranges
1 can of unbaked cinnamon rolls tub with frosting

  1. Cut the oranges in half. 
  2. Scope out the orange to create a shell. (Eat the scooped out filling.)
  3. Place one of the unbaked cinnamon rolls inside half an orange shell.
  4. Place the other half of the orange shell on top.
  5. Wrap with tin foil.
  6. Place the orange wrapped cinnamon rolls onto hot embers of the campfire.
  7. Allow the cinnamon rolls to cook for at least 13 minutes or until desired doneness. 
  8. Top with the frosting inside the tube of cinnamon rolls.
