These Kid Friendly Surprise Breakfast Sweet Rolls are terrific for morning school breakfasts. Quick. Simple. Delicious. PERFECT!

Since this sweet roll recipe only has five ingredients, your kids can bake up a batch first thing in the morning.

I know my kids will find this recipe enticing not only for breakfast, but for an afternoon snack as well.

These rolls are so delicious that maybe they can convince my youngest – my daughter, Lucie – to eat breakfast.

Since she has school lunch at 10:30 am now (crazy, right?) she’s skipping breakfast except for a glass of juice. I can’t blame her a bit as 10:30 is too early even for a mid-morning snack.

This breakfast sweet roll recipe comes from my frequent contributor, Holly Clegg. She’s a lady who knows what kids love!
