  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 teaspoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the brown sugar, sugar and cinnamon. Separate dough into 12 breadsticks; brush all sides with some of the butter, then coat with sugar mixture.
  2. On a greased baking sheet, form three breadsticks into a coil, overlapping ends slightly. Secure with a toothpick through the overlapped ends and at the end of the swirl. Repeat with remaining breadsticks. Drizzle remaining butter over rolls; sprinkle with any remaining sugar mixture.
  3. Bake at 375° for 15-17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Discard toothpicks. Combine the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla; drizzle over rolls. Serve warm.
