I wanted to make a special heart shaped cinnamon roll. I’ve made a variation of these for Christmas and the Fourth of July, too! I hope it inspires you!

There are 4 cans of cinnamon rolls in this box. I only needed 1 of them.

Take the rolls out of the can, then separate the rolls.

Here’s a video showing how I twisted the dough.

Lay four twists in the shape of a heart.

Then fill in the heart with the other 4 cinnamon roll strips. (There are 8 cinnamon rolls in a can– so you only need one can!)

Bake, being careful not to burn it.

Add the frosting glaze that came in the can, after the heart has cooled a bit.
