What’s better on a cold winter morning that building a snowman out of hot, flaky cinnamon rolls? Yeah, I couldn’t think of anything better either. Taking a hint from our Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls, we decided to try Snowman Cinnamon Rolls!
No, I don’t make cinnamon rolls from scratch. You’re going to be amazed at how easy these really are!
Easy Snowman Cinnamon Rolls
You start with a can of these:
Yep, just good ol’ Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls – make sure you get the Butter Cream Frosting Flaky Cinnamon Rolls (yellow band around the can). This is important! There are kinds that don’t fluff up right and you’ll have a disaster. Just ask our Pumpkin-shaped Cinnamon Rolls.
Arrange them on a pan like so (spraying the pan with cooking spray first really helps):
I used all 8 cinnamon rolls. The bottom circle is 3 cinnamon rolls. The middle circle is 2 and the top circle is one. I cut one to make his hat and the last to make his arms. I spaced them just slightly because they will puff up.
Bake per the directions on the can.
He will (hopefully) come out looking a bit like this.
He was really almost too cute to eat! I didn’t want to cut him apart!!
