Valentines Cinnamon Roll Recipe

What could be better than hot, gooey homemade cinnamon rolls straight from the oven?! These easy heart shaped cinnamon buns are so fun to make for Valentines! Let me show you how…

Cinnamon roll recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 17.5 oz containers of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls
  • Non stick baking spray
  • 1 Tbsp Valentines sprinkles

Tip: homemade cream cheese icing can also be added to the top of the casserole but using the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls is just as good in our opinion! We’ve tried different brands but Pillsbury rolls are always better than any other store brand.

Valentines Cinnamon Roll Ingredients

Directions:

1. Open the two cans of dough and set aside the icing. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Unroll each of the large cinnamon rolls almost to the center. Then roll about 2″ of the other end into a small spiral. Press the two rolled ends together and pull the remaining dough into a “v”, creating a heart shape.
