If you ever need a special desert for the Fourth of July in a hurry,…
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.
Preheat the oven according to the directions, then grease a cookie sheet, using butter or crisco/ vegetable shortening.
Tear open the can.
Press at the seam with your thumbs or a spoon so it will pop open.
Take the rolls out of the can, then separate the rolls.
Then open the roll, straighten it, and twist it.
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.
There never seems to be enough frosting,
so I added some pink frosting and heart shaped sprinkles from Pillsbury.
Lay a heart shaped paper doily on a large serving tray
and serve for a Valentine breakfast or brunch— or for your Valentine.
Add heart shaped marshmallows to make it even more special!
Now if only I could get my vegetables to look this appetizing!
