Step 1

To start making your cinnamon rolled ice cream, combine the heavy cream, condensed milk, and salt in a small bowl, whisking together until fully mixed.

Step 2

Pour the mixture over two quarter sheet pans or one half sheet pan. Make sure the ice cream base just barely covers the bottom, no thicker than a ¼-inch.

Step 3

Finely chop up 2 BonBites into small pieces. With a whisk, mix the BonBite pieces into the ice cream base to ensure they’re evenly distributed.

Step 4

Freeze for at least 4 hours. Make sure to also put your scrapers and ice cream bowls in the freezer so the ice cream doesn’t melt while rolling.

Step 5

After the ice cream is frozen solid, remove from the freezer. Quickly place the metal spatula/paint scraper at an 45° angle against the edge of the pan, pushing carefully forward. If necessary, use a knife to help the cream form into a roll shape. You may need to use a knife to cut along the line you are rolling to break up any BonBite pieces.

Step 6

Place the rolled ice cream in a bowl and serve. Drizzle with caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, or any of your other favorite toppings.

Chef's Notes:

Here are a few tips to help ensure that your homemade cinnamon rolled ice cream featuring Cinnabon BonBites is as delicious as possible:

  • Cinnabon suggests using a stainless steel baking sheet. Other materials, such as aluminum, are much more likely to experience scraping and scratching from the metal spatula.
  • Heavy cream and whipping cream can be used interchangeably. Heavy cream gives a slightly thicker, creamier texture.
  • Consider chilling the serving bowl and the metal spatula to help prevent the ice cream from melting.
