cranberry mango cinnamon bitesWe love the holiday season, it’s a time to get together and share time with family and friends. It’s a time to make family memories and of traditions. One of those family traditions is spending quality time in the kitchen with the kids creating delicious holiday treats. We love baking cookies and making sweet treats but sometimes this can take too much time and there is never enough time, specially during the holiday season!

That is why we always try to find ways in which we can bake delicious treats easier and quicker and that is where the Pillsbury products come in. By using Pillsbury products like Pillsbury cookie dough and cinnamon rolls we can made sweet desserts and holiday treats in no time and spend more time with our loved ones sharing them!

As the holidays draw closer our home is always filled with family and friends. Last weekend we had my parents and some friends over for a gift wrapping get together. We created some delicious cranberry and mango cinnamon roll bites which where a total hit and they only took minutes to make.

These little cinnamon bites where so good! Everyone loved them and they were gone in no time. The cranberry mango sauce gave them a festive, holiday taste while still including some of those tropical flavors that always remind me of spending Christmas back home in Guatemala with my family. Their small size made these perfect for entertaining as people could just pop them in their mouth and there was no mess.
