A Jolly, Happy Holiday Breakfast

Not only are these Cinnamon Roll Snowmen so festive and delicious, it’s such a fun activity to do with the kids! We loved creating our frosty friends together. A bed of mini marshmallows makes the perfect winter wonderland setting, don’t you think? And canned cinnamon rolls take all the stress out of baking up the snowmen themselves. It could not be easier and more fun. And the yum is in the details! From chocolate chip eyes to blueberry buttons and bacon arms, these cinnamon roll treats only get more delicious.

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Snowmen

First, preheat oven to 350°F. Then spray a large cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Separate cinnamon rolls into individual rolls.

Snowman: Place 1 roll toward the top of the pan. Then place a second roll in the middle of the pan. Unroll third roll into a strip, then loosely coil it around the roll in the middle of the pan. Move the rolls closer together so they’re almost touching each other. Place a fourth roll toward the bottom of the pan. Unroll 2 more rolls into strips and loosely coil each strip around the bottom roll. Press the bottom rolls up near the middle rolls. Unroll about 1/3 of a seventh roll so you have a short strip of dough. Place the dough straight across the top roll on the sheet pan to form the bottom of the snowman’s hat. Unroll about another 1/3 of the roll and create the shape of the top of the hat by zig zagging the dough. Press it up against the flat piece to create the full hat.

Snowbaby: start unrolling a cinnamon roll and re-rolling it tighter about 5 times for the base “snowball” then cut it, continue rolling it about 4 times for the middle “snowball” and use the final piece of the cinnamon roll for the head of the snowman, rolling it a little bit tighter if needed to stay together. Press the three “snowballs” tightly together to build a snowbaby.

Snowkid: Place one roll near the bottom of the pan. Unroll a second roll and reroll about ⅔ of the roll before cutting off the last part of the cinnamon roll. Re-roll the part cut off of the last cinnamon roll to create the top ball of the snowkid. Unroll just part of a third roll so you have a short strip of dough. Place the dough straight across the top roll on the sheet pan to form the bottom of the snowkid’s hat. Fold the remaining portion and press it up against the flat piece to create the full hat.
