Ooops I did it again. Another sweet treat for camping. I can’t help it, I absolutely love a sweet treat at the end of the night and I’m kinda tired of marshmallows. I also like fast and easy, because I don’t have my full kitchen and pantry out at the lake and yet I still want something that’s gonna rock my socks.

Why hello, Oreo Cinnamon Buns done in a skillet. My hips may not like you but oh, I sure do <3 <3 <3

Can we say easy?

Take a tube of pre-made cinnamon buns.

Roll the cinnamon buns open, spread cream cheese and Oreo’s inside, then roll up again.

I’m pretty sure you won’t be asking for that 5 whole minutes back when you taste these babies.

Why do Oreo’s make EVERYTHING BETTER? Why can’t they be diet food, I mean, please?

If I could pick any sweet to be healthy for you, it might just be Oreo’s. I could live off them. There’s chocolate in the cookie part and then the filling? Vanilla bliss.

    The recipe I am seeing does not mention how much cream cheese to use?

    Cinnamon can naturally help lower down blood sugar levels, a sweet recipe that diabetics may enjoy too. Kudos!

      How long did it take on the fire? I’m trying this this morning, and it’s been on the great for about 20 minutes…
