No, I don’t make cinnamon rolls from scratch. You’re going to be amazed at how easy these really are!
Easy Easter Bunny 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):
You’ll need to unroll each roll and cut it into pieces. You should be able to get a bunny from every cinnamon roll. For the ear pieces I cut, they were actually shorter pieces than the look – I stretched the dough out before forming the ear. Also, be sure to pinch the bottom ends of the ears together really well (better than in my picture – I did not pinch them well enough!)
Bake per the directions on the can.
They will (hopefully) come out looking a bit like this:
If the ears are a little too puffy or come detached from the head – they are fixable while they’re still warm. Just adjust and smush where you need to.
After that, I just iced them like I would any other batch of cinnamon rolls. I thought about coloring the icing to make different color bunnies, but I was short on time the morning I was making these and dint’ have time to be extra.
