Just 3 Ingredients!

  • Cinnamon Rolls: Just grab a can of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls (not the Grands – just the regular can that comes with 8 rolls). Or use any brand!
  • Food Coloring: If you want to tint the icing pink, you’ll need pink or red food coloring.
  • Sprinkles: Because Valentine sprinkles make everything more fun!

How to make Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Start with a can of cinnamon rolls. Unwrap them and set the icing aside.
  2. Cut the cinnamon roll to unwrap.
  3. Start to wrap the both ends of the roll up on itself.
  4. The ends will meet in the middle.
  5. Pinch the bottom to make it the bottom of the heart.
  6. Place on a cookie sheet and bake as directed.

Variation: Use Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Yes! If you want to make heart shaped rolls from scratch, feel free! You would unroll them and re-roll them the same way. Here are some of my favorite cinnamon roll recipes:

Expert Tips

  • How long to bake pillsbury cinnamon rolls: Bake these about 10-15 minutes.
  • Be careful cutting the rolls – use the spiral to guide you.
  • Bake these on silicone or parchment so they don’t stick.


How to decorate sweetheart rolls

Just tint the icing pink with a drop of food coloring, then drizzle over the rolls. Sprinkle with sprinkles!

How to make cinnamon rolls on sticks

You can add popsicle or lollipop sticks to these too! Dip the sticks in melted white chocolate then push into the bottom of the heart. The chocolate will harden and the cinnamon roll will stay on the sticks.

How to store Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls

Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
