Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

If you haven’t been over to read about my Galentine’s Brunch (read it here) or my Galentine’s Fondue Party (read it here) – go read them and get inspired for your own fun parties celebrating the gal pals in your life!

One of the things that have been loving making and everyone seems to enjoy eating them are heart shaped cinnamon rolls! Now I am not making these from scratch these are good ‘ole store bought cinnamon rolls that I shape into hearts. They are super easy and you will LOVE impressing your guests with them.

You start out by unrolling the cinnamon rolls and cutting the strip in half.

Once you do that you roll both ends in toward each other and then pinch the bottom.

You will bake these are 10 minutes at 350.

This is the important part! At about 5-7 minutes you need to take them out and repinch them. This helps keep their shape and make sure they turn out like hearts. Once the yeast gets activated in the oven it tends to lose it’s shape which is why we have to get it a good pinch halfway through the baking part!

Once they are done – you can put icing on them. I tend to just lightly glaze mine because I want my guests to really see the heart!

And then viola! You have done it. And these things are amazing!
