You can get 3,4, or 5 Bonus Box Tops by purchasing participating General Mills Cereals, Yoplait Kid products, and Pillsbury products. To help you get some bonus box tops, I am offering a Kroger Family of Stores $25 gift card thanks to General Mills who provided me with the gift card, information, and giveaway through MyBlogSpark.

Now on to the recipe.  This recipe utilizes 2 packages or refrigerator biscuits, but you could easily make bigger ones using the Grands biscuits, which would earn you bonus box tops at the Kroger Family of stores if you so desire.  I found this recipe on a site called Blogging It’s What’s for Dinner.  These are simple and oh so delicious.  The pats of butter help make the cinnamon sugar get al crispy.  Love em!

Philly Cheese Rolls

  • 2 cans refrigerator biscuits (the small size with 10 in a can)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 8 oz block Philadelphia cream cheese, cut into 20 pieces (I used the reduced fat)
  • 3 TBS butter
  1. Preheat oven to 400*. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Open biscuits and place all 20 biscuits on a plate, so that you can create an assembly line.
  3. Flatten the biscuit,  place 1/2 tsp cinnamon sugar mixture in center of biscuit followed by a piece of cream cheese.
  4. Then bring one side over the other and seal, pinching the sides together.
  5. Place on a greased cookie sheet, about 2-3 inches apart. REPEAT  process 19 more times.(I was able to get them all on my jelly roll pan)
  6. Once they are all rolled up, sprinkle a little more cinnamon sugar on the tops. Cut butter into small pats, and place a pat on top of each roll. (You’ll have some leftover cinnamon sugar.  Just save it for cinnamon toast)
  7. Bake at 400* for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm, or at room temperature.

    I don’t think I sealed them properly. They opened up as they rose during baking. The good thing was that I figured out I could close them a bit with a toothpick as they cooled. While they weren’t anything special to look at, they sure were tasty. Thanks again!

I get them from cereal, diapers, toilet paper, pillsbury dough, yogurts…

  • I’ve been collecting box tops for years. Our last elementary school bought smart boards for almost every classroom. We get a ton of box tops from cold cereal, fruit snacks and granola bars.

  • I have had good intentions of collecting box tops but rarely do it. At a recent PTA meeting they talked about the program and have an easily accesible drop off box so my intentions are renewed. We get juicy juice boxes frequently and many cereals with box tops. THanks for keeping good recipes coming. The fairly recent hot fudge pudding was a family favorite of mine in the Betty Crocker cookbook, too. Nostalgic.

  • I’ve been collecting box tops for several years, but had to donate to my neighbor’s children (since my oldest is in kindergarten this year). I’m not sure what the school has purchased with the box tops. We buy lots of box top cereals, granola bars, ziplock bags, etc. Thanks for the contest!
