Yields 10-inch Bundt pan


  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 (8 ounce) brick cream cheese
  • 2 (8 roll) packages refrigerated cinnamon rolls


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and spray Bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In a small bowl melt butter. Add in white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir and set aside.
  3. Cut brick of cream cheese into 16 equal cubes, set aside.
  4. Open packages of cinnamon rolls (save the icing) and flatten each roll with your hand. Add one cube of cream cheese in the middle of the flattened cinnamon roll and pull the edges up and around the cream cheese cube. Add 8 cream cheese stuffed rolls to the Bundt pan, cream cheese side up. Pour half the butter/sugar mixture over the rolls.
