Did you stock up with some yummy cinnamon buns? Make sure you know how to reheat Cinnabon buns properly with my tips below.
Oh, Cinnabon. You wickedly delicious temptress, luring us into your stores with your enchantingly sweet aromas like a siren song.
Your gooey cinnamon-y goodness cannot be compared to any other baked treat. A triumphant combination of soft dough and creamy icing, you are a true delight for the taste buds!
There really is nothing like a fresh, hot Cinnabon roll. The first bite that makes you practically shudder with joy is nothing short of euphoric.
The problem is that they are not as readily available as we all might like. So when you travel somewhere that has a Cinnabon store, you may be tempted to purchase a box or two (or five!) to bring home with you.
While there is nothing wrong with that, you may be wondering how you can revive your rolls to their original magnificence once you are ready to devour them. Good news! It isn’t as difficult as you might think.
In fact, with the Cinnabon online store now shipping anywhere in the U.S., you may start ordering this iconic delicacy and keeping them on hand for whenever the craving strikes!
But first you have to store them properly and must know the best ways on how to reheat Cinnabon.
How to Store Cinnabon Properly.
When it comes to storing your Cinnabon, the recommendation is to keep them in an airtight container for up to two days after purchase. That’s great if you plan to eat all of them (no judgement here) in two days.
Do keep in mind that, per the fine folks at Cinnabon, our favorite little rolls are not fans of the refrigerator so don’t punish them by storing them there!
However, if your plan is to freeze them and eat them over time, they will keep for 30 days. Here are the best ways to recreate the magic that is a fresh-from-the-mall Cinnabon roll.
How to Reheat Cinnabon.
The first and quickest way to resuscitate your Cinnabon is in your microwave. The only caveat to this method is that you MUST defrost your rolls first if they are frozen. This may require a little planning ahead, so as soon as you feel the urge to indulge, go get them out of the freezer.
Once they are thawed, just place your roll(s) on a microwave-safe plate and give them a 30-40 second warmup on high (for the Classic roll). If you are warming more than one (again, no judgement) Classic roll, add ten seconds for each additional roll.
Perhaps MiniBons are more your speed. No problem. Warm the little guys for 15-20 seconds on high, adding four seconds for each extra roll. BonBites only require 10-15 seconds on high.
Another way to revive your Cinnabon is in your oven. Albeit not as swift a method as the microwave, it is a great way to heat multiple rolls at once.
Simply preheat your oven to 350°F and place your room-temperature rolls on a baking sheet. Cover them with foil and warm the Classic rolls for approximately 15-20 minutes.
MiniBons and BonBites need only about 12 minutes. Of course, you will need to find a way to occupy your time while you wait for what will certainly seem like an eternity but the result will be so worth it!
Pair your rolls with a steaming cup of coffee or hot tea and relax while you savor every last bite!
While you may not be able to walk into a Cinnabon store and get a hot roll on demand, there is nothing stopping you from being able to spoil yourself with one whenever you want.
And now that you know how to reheat Cinnabon, you can delight in them just as much right from the comfort of your own home!
How Long Does Cinnabon Last?
Cinnabon cinnamon rolls are one of the most popular items on the chain’s menu. But how long do they last?
Cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon typically last around 3-5 days when stored at room temperature. However, if you store them in the fridge, they can last up to 7 days. If you want them to last even longer, you can freeze them for up to 2 months.
When it comes to Cinnabon cinnamon rolls, the key is to enjoy them fresh. The sooner you eat them, the better they’ll taste. But if you need to store them for a short period of time, follow the tips above and you’ll be able to enjoy them for days (or even weeks) to come.
