I live in the South, and right now – we’re snowed in. At least we are snowed in by the South’s standards!
We’ve got about 6 inches of snow right now with more coming, and that classifies as time to hoard the bread and milk ’round here. Although, personally – I skipped the bread & milk and instead stocked up on country ham. What? I like country ham.
Some people (like my best friend) can’t stand to be snowed in. They get cabin fever fast. Now me? I love being snowed in – just so long as my power doesn’t go out! No errands, no appointments, no traffic… just me sitting at home in my comfy jammy pants, fuzzy socks, & sipping on hot cocoa. Sounds more like a vacation as far as I’m concerned!
It’s funny how something like snow on the ground makes some foods even more comforting. Now, for us today – we’re having the ultimate treat. My homemade ‘best-ever’ hot cocoa plus a big batch of cinnamon rolls – oh yes. And, the fact that the cinnamon rolls are shaped like hearts… well, that just makes everything even more comfy & cozy.
Yes, shaped like hearts. That’s what I said. Aren’t they super duper cutesy wootsy?
Ok, ok…. I may get a little carried away sometimes. 😉
These precious little hearts are so easy to pull off. All you need is a can of flaky cinnamon rolls to get started. Make sure they’re flaky though – I don’t know the scientific reason why the others don’t work, I just know they don’t.
Unravel the cinnamon rolls. Take each cinnamon roll round and unravel it to where the cinnamon roll dough bends in the middle. Like this.
Pinch the end a little to make the bottom of your heart. Then coil the two ends down into a spiral to finish your heart shape.
Bake according to the back of the tube of cinnamon rolls.
When they come out, they’ll look all pretty.
To make them even prettier – frost them with the icing that comes with them, and then sprinkle on some sprinkles. Adorable, right?
Need one more look? Easy as pie. Ok… WAY easier than pie.
