Peanut Butter and Jelly Cini Minis

Oh boy are these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cini Minis a treat! These are a take on my other cini mini recipe, Almond Crescent Roll Cini-Minis. You can actually make them without the almonds and almond extract, and just have a classic cinnamon roll too. So easy a delicious!

Can’t think of a better way to start a weekend off than with these. They are super easy to make, and a great way to get kiddos in the kitchen if you have helpers. From one can of crescents you should get two squares of dough once seams are pressed together.

Spread jelly of choice (I used strawberry) evenly over dough, then sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon. Roll it up gently, and slice into bite sized rolls.

The rolls rise a bit during baking, but not a ton, so you don’t need to leave any real space between each roll. While they bake up, make the dynamite peanut butter frosting! Room temp soft butter is key to a smooth frosting to avoid any lumps.

Once the rolls are cooled slightly, slather that frosting all over, and dig in!

I can’t believe I used to not like peanut butter…it’s one of my favorite things now as an adult. Hope you love and have fun making these Peanut Butter and Jelly Cini Minis!

  • 1 8 oz. can crescent rolls
  • 4 tbsps jelly any flavor
  • Pinch of cinnamon

For the frosting

  • 2 tbsps unsalted butter room temp
  • 1/8 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk or water


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a pie plate or square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

  2. Unroll the crescent dough without breaking into the pre-cut triangles. You should have two square pieces. Press together the perforated lines gently to close the gaps. Spread 2 tbsps of jelly on each square. Spread almost all the way to the edges.

  3. Sprinkle a bit of cinnamon over the jelly. Gently roll up, as tight as possible, but without oozing all the jelly out. Slice in about 1-inch pieces. Place into prepared baking pan. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.

  4. While the rolls are baking, prepare the frosting. Add butter to a medium bowl, beat until smooth. Beat in peanut butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, and milk/water. Beat until smooth. Add more powdered sugar for a thicker consistency, or more milk/water for thinner consistency.

  5. Allow rolls to cool slightly before frosting. Enjoy immediately!
