Easy Cinnamon Roll Hearts
January 30, 2021
This Valentine’s Day breakfast idea couldn’t be any easier. Store-bought cinnamon rolls from the refrigerator aisle are shaped into hearts for a perfectly easy Cinnamon Roll Hearts to celebrate the holiday.
Easy Peasy Breakfast
There’s no question that I love being festive, but we lead crazy, full lives like many of you and there’s not always time to make a holiday themed recipe from scratch. That’s why I always like to have a couple of recipes that are super simple and utilize store-bought ingredients. Consider this literally…a ONE ingredient recipe. One can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls can be turned into these lovely hearts by simply unrolling and reshaping.
Ready, set, reshape
This is so simple that it can easily be done with young helpers in the kitchen. I’ve found that there are certain brands of refrigerated cinnamon rolls that this works best with, like the Pillsbury Grands Flaky Cinnamon rolls. the size is great and they’re really easy to unroll.
After unrolling into one large strip, start on both ends and coil them up until they meet in the middle. From there, pinch the point at the bottom of the heart and transfer to a sheet pan.
Bake and Drizzle
From there you follow the same directions that that you would for making these the standard way. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and cooked all the way through. I like to drizzle the icing in a zig zag pattern after they’ve cooled slightly. I always think they’re best when served warm. You can also apply this same technique to make Cinnamon Roll Hearts with a homemade cinnamon roll recipe as well.Print
