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! *I'd love for you to follow me on my blog at B4 and Afters for more of my great ideas! icon

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.

Then open the roll, straighten it, and twist it.

Here’s a video showing how I twisted the dough. (I'd love for you to follow me and my great ideas over on YouTube!!)

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!)

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