What could be a better Valentine’s treat than iced, sprinkled-laden cinnamon rolls that are shaped like hearts? They are so easy to make and delicious because they are made with iconic Pillsbury flaky Cinnamon Rolls. Last weekend, my little granddaughter, Emma Kate, and I made them for a mid-morning treat, and our home smelled scrumptious. What a fun activity to do with someone you love.

How To Shape Heart Shaped Cinnamon Rolls?

These sweet cinnamon rolls are made with Pillsbury FLAKY Cinnamon Rolls. Start by separating the dough into individual cinnamon rolls. Unroll and shape one cinnamon roll at a time.

Gently unroll and keep one end coiled up, as shown. Coil the other end of the dough strip, as shown.

Pull the strip of dough down and pinch the middle together firmly, making a heart shape. You will want to ensure the dough is firmly pinched together so it does not break apart during baking.

Put the heart-shaped rolls on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake according to the directions on the can. Cool the cinnamon rolls on a wire rack.

When the rolls are cool, drizzle the enclosed icing over them and add sprinkles, if desired.

Tips For Success

There are just a couple tips for success when making these scrumptious sweet rolls.

I used Pillsbury Flaky Cinnamon Rolls for this recipe and found them much easier to work with than the regular cinnamon rolls.

I made four batches of heart-shaped cinnamon rolls, and baking them for a few minutes less than the suggested time on the package made them lightly golden and soft.

If the icing is too thick to drizzle, add the tiniest splash of milk to the icing and stir it into the icing.

    😃 Hi Yvonne,
    I am making your Chicken Taco soup tomorrow for an event at church. Quick question..
    planning to do it in the crockpot. Do you cook the chicken separately “before” putting in the crockpot or put in raw & allow it to cook with all of the ingredients.
    Thanks SO much! Julie❤️

    1. I put the chicken in the slow cooker raw and let it cook with the other ingredients. Enjoy!
