How to Make Mini King Cakes

Step-by-Step

  1. 375 degree oven. In a bowl, pour hot cider over raisins to plump. Let sit 5 minutes. Drain. Unfold the cinnamon rolls. Place two strips next to each other, pinching the seams to create one wide strip. Sprinkle bottom half with raisins and pecans. Fold over; press to seal. Twist dough into a circle; seal ends. Repeat with remaining rolls. Bakes cakes a few inches apart on a cookie sheet 17 - 20 minutes. Ice them while they are warm; sprinkle with sugar crystals.
