Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

For my sugar lovers, if you are looking for something sweet to eat for breakfast that will LITERALLY taste like heaven in your mouth, then this is the perfect recipe for you to make! I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had any kind of pastry that tasted merely as good as this. I devoured this meal in less than 10 minutes, taking a minute break between each bite just to digest all the sugar! Of course, I don’t recommend this for any diabetic or someone with a low sugar tolerance, or anybody on a diet.

I got the recipe from a fellow blogger, and I’m so glad I bookmarked it because it’s one of the best breakfasts I have eaten in a long time. I’m definitely going to make this again, but not for a while! One because I think I just ate enough sugar for a whole week, and two because it’s a little complicated to make for breakfast, especially if you’re like me who likes small, easy-to-make dishes. Anyways here’s the recipe from the lady I got it from:
