What better way to surprise a loved one any time of the year than with a delicious, tender and juicy Sweetheart Cinnamon Roll! Thanks to Sheryl at Lady Behind the Curtain, cinnamon rolls have never been cuter! With such ease of preparation and beautiful results, this cinnamon roll recipe will have you in the perfect mood for such a warm and loving day. Finished in less than half an hour, this cinnamon rolls recipe makes for a simple and delicious treat that will delight.

Although it is a dessert recipe, these Sweetheart Cinnamon Rolls are more of a modification. One of the great things about this delicacy is that it’s just a commercial, store-bought cinnamon roll, undone and shaped into a heart. This makes for a simple dessert that can be made at a moment's notice and takes a little preparation. To begin, Sheryl notes that the only tricky part of this cinnamon bun recipe is the unwinding. As I’m sure most of you know, store-bought cinnamon rolls come out of the packaging very tender, slippery and delicate. To avoid any problems, it might be best to carefully separate each cinnamon roll first and then carefully unravel them. Once unraveled, you have complete creativity over the shape, design, and look of the treat. Take this opportunity to think up any other fun and festive ways of shaping the rolls - you might just come up with a design for corresponding holidays! After deciding on a specific shape (Sheryl has photos of hers up on her blog), it’s time to place your Sweetheart Cinnamon Rolls on a baking pan, spaced out accordingly, and into the oven.

Once out of the oven comes the toppings! Like most store-bought cinnamon rolls, the one you buy most likely comes with frosting. After taking the cinnamon rolls out of the oven, it’s best to drizzle the frosting on right away as the heat from the rolls will melt the frosting. If the sugary frosting is too much for you, there’s plenty of alternatives such as cream cheese frosting or fruit-based glazes. Fiddling with the frosting is what will make this cinnamon roll recipe personal! Sheryl then adds sprinkles to the mix and tops the cinnamon rolls. Sheryl uses small, heart-shaped sprinkles which give these cinnamon rolls even more of a Valentine’s Day feel. But, just like the frosting, the sprinkles can be replaced and made even more creative.

This cinnamon roll recipe can truly brighten up someone’s day and let them know just how much you care. The smell of baking these delicious treats will travel through your home, giving a pleasant scent of festivity. Whether it’s for your children, significant other loved one or just for an event, these Sweetheart Cinnamon Rolls are a perfect treat for such a special day.
