easy cinnabunnies (with printable recipe)

Looking for an simple, yet cute treat to make for your littles (or yourself) this Easter? Look no further, all you need for this recipe is a can of cinnamon roll dough! But if you want to add a little more work I also included how to make your own cinnamon rolls and icing in the printable.

how to make cinnabunnies:

– Preheat the oven according to the directions on the package, for me it was 400ºF. Separate and unroll the cinnamon rolls so you can start to form the bunny.

– Use your hands and pull the outer end out and up into one bunny ear and then another (ultimately shape the dough into an M). Press down between the two bunny ears and in on the outside to secure them to the round part of the cinnamon roll. (Check out my reel for a video tutorial!)

– Transfer to baking sheet and bake accordingly.

– Once the timer goes off, remove the cinnabunnies from the oven and drizzle the icing on them while they are still warm. Then, garnish (I think that’s the term? lol) with your festive sprinkles if you heart desires to.

– Lastly, enjoy! If you make this recipe let me know what you and/or your little ones think in the comment section.
