Total Prep Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 Box – Joy Waffle Cones
  • Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil
  • 17.5-Ounce Canister  – Refrigerated Cinnamon Rolls
  • Icing (included in cinnamon roll canister)


  • ¾ cup – All Purpose Flour
  • 1.5 tsp. – Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ cup – Brown Sugar, loosely packed
  • ¼ cup – Melted Butter

Fried Cinnamon Apples

  • ¼ cup – Melted Butter
  • ¼ cup – Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. – Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 – Granny Smith Apples, sliced


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While preheating, core and fine chop apples with skin. Melt butter over medium heat. Add apples, cinnamon, and sugar and stir into the hot butter, thoroughly coating apples. Cook apples until slightly softened, about 5 to 8 minutes. Once cooked, place apples in bowl to cool. In microwave, heat other ¼ cup of butter until melted. In small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, brown sugar, and add melted butter. Stir until combined and resembling course crumbs. Line a cookie sheet with Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil and add crumb mixture. Bake for 10 minutes. Open cinnamon roll container and place a single roll onto cutting board. Cut cinnamon roll into 4 pieces. Gently place cinnamon roll dough cubes into Joy Waffle Cone. Do not pack dough into cone.  Tear off a 16” sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Non-Stick Foil and lay on flat surface, dull side facing up (as dull side has the non-stick properties). Gently center dough-filled cone onto foil sheet and double fold all corners inward, leaving room for heat to circulate inside. Lightly press and seal any open seams. Place in oven and bake for 13 minutes. When finished baking, remove cone from the oven and let sit for a few minutes. Carefully untwist top. Take caution as there could be steam. Remove icing lid and place container in microwave. Microwave in 10 second increments until icing is slightly thinned. Once the cone is cool enough to handle, unwrap from foil. Dice a slice or two of warm apples into bite-sized pieces. With spoon, place diced apples on top of cone. Drizzle with hot icing and immediately sprinkle on apple & crumb topping.
