Cinnamon Roll Bunnies Recipe

I know this has all the earmarks (haha! get it? earmarks? bunny ears? eh hem, yeah… anyway…) of a Pinterest-Fail, but these are actually pretty cute, simple to make and great for Easter breakfast or brunch. Since you start with pre-made cinnamon rolls, there is less work and a pretty solid cinnamon roll base to work with.

Cinnamon Roll Bunnies Recipe Notes:

• The bunnies can be shaped the night before. Place them in the cookie sheet and cover tightly with foil or plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge, along with the icing. Next day, bake, glaze and serve. Obviously, if you are shaping the night before, do not preheat your oven until you are ready to bake.

• These are 1-4-1 with the cinnamon rolls. If you want 16, you need two 8-packs of cinnamon rolls, 24, you need three 8-packs of cinnamon rolls, etc.

• Take the longest strip (the half of the original roll) and roll up tightly to form the body of the bunny. Turn the roll in such a way, so that the end of the roll is facing downwards. That will become the bunny’s front leg.

  1. Those are just TOO cute! Will definitely be making them next week.

  2. So adorable! And we really tried. But couldn’t get the danged things to unroll. There’s a trick, right? : (

    • 1947…I tried, also…but they wouldn’t unroll for me, either. And I tried with ‘the’ big brand…Pillsbury! So we just had regular cinnamon rolls for Easter breakfast 🙂
