Step-By-Step Directions

  1. Take the roll log out of the package. Let rolls thaw on a cookie sheet until they can be cut along the pre-scored lines (45 min. – 2 hrs.).
  2. Cut apart the nine rolls along the pre-scored lines.
  3. Place singles rolls on a cookie sheet, leaving around 2-3 inches of space between each roll. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise for 4-6 hours at room temperature.
  4. Fry in a deep fat fryer or air fryer.
    • Deep Fat Fryer:
      • Fry at about 350°F for 30-45 seconds.
      • Flip and cook another 15-20 seconds on the other side.
    • Air Fryer:
      • Fry at about 390°F for 2-3 minutes.
      • Flip and cook another 1-2 minutes on the other side.
  5. Place on a cooling rack.
  6. Empty the packet of caramel glaze into a microwave-safe bowl. Warm for about 30 seconds.
  7. Drizzle caramel glaze on rolls and enjoy!


  • You can put the roll log in the microwave for 30 sec. to make the thawing process go faster.
  • When using an air fryer, watch the rolls closely when frying. Cooking times may increase or decrease depending on various models.
