Sweetheart cinnamon rolls

I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. Even if I didn’t always have a significant other it was still a lot of fun. I mean, it’s basically a 24-hour free for all to seek out all the chocolate and champagne you can find. Aka – Heaven! I especially love how even the most normal things get turned pink and red and in some cases get turned into hearts. It’s so cheery! I ran across this fun recipe for heart shaped cinnamon rolls a couple of years ago. I made them for a work party and they were a hit! And the best part was how easy they were to make. You only need one can of refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing for this recipe. That’s it! You could make actual cinnamon rolls from scratch, but for those who don’t have time for all of that this quick recipe will do. If you do make your rolls from scratch, let me know what recipe you follow. I need a go-to cinnamon roll recipe but I just haven’t found the right one yet.

To get started, grab a can of your favorite refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and give your baking sheet a light coating of cooking spray. Unwind each roll until you reach the center coil. Leave the center coiled and coil the unrolled end in towards the center until the two meet. You should have two equal coils as pictured. Pinch the middle of the strip down to form more of a heart shape. Place on baking sheet and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until browned. Let cool for a few minutes and add the frosting. And you’re done! You can give them away to your valentine or eat them all yourselves. I won’t judge you…

Happy Valentine’s Day!
