Ingredients

  • 1 box of phyllo dough
  • Hershey's Simply 5 syrup

Cinnamon Roll Mixture

  • 3/4 cup softened butter to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • heaping tablespoon of honey

Churro topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix butter, sugar, cinnamon, and honey in a bowl until it makes a thick paste.
  • Unwrap thawed phyllo dough and separate into 6-8 smaller sections evenly.
  • With a baster, baste cinnamon butter mixture gently and thinly onto the phyllo dough.
  • Drizzle lightly the Hershey's Simply 5 Syrup on top of the cinnamon butter mixture.
  • Roll tightly (but softly) starting from one edge to the next; twist gently to meld the ingredients together, and repeat until all phyllo dough sections are complete.
  • Baste each phyllo twist generously with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden brown and sizzling.
  • Serve with optional sprinkled powdered sugar or additional Hershey's Simply 5 Syrup drizzled over top.
