Spicy Sweethearts

My sweet treat this month is a super simple idea for Valentine's Day!

All you need to make these Cinnamon Spiral Sweethearts is a tube of cinnamon rolls.

I unrolled each bun, so I had long strip of dough. Then twisted it into a spiral. Once I had the entire strip twisted I placed it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and shaped it into a heart. Pinching the end so the heart stayed together.

When all your rolls have been turned into hearts. Bake on the parchment lined pan at the temperature the package suggests but for less time. (My rolls said to bake at 400 for 8-12 minutes so I baked at 400 for 7 minutes).

I'll use my icing as a dip but you could also drizzle it over the top just like a regular cinnamon bun.



  1. I can smell the cinnamon! These look yummy and cinnamon is such a mood lifter!

  2. What a great idea! This will be a great for a v-day weekend brunch! Thanks for sharing! xoxo, Amy

  3. Thanks for the comments! Craftymoose- you're right, there's nothing quite like the smell of cinnamon.

    Crafter's Delights- These would be perfect for a brunch. But if you didn't want to go with a sweet roll I bet you could do the same thing with a packaged breadstick too!

  4. Oh yummy! Great hubby likes cinnamon buns!
