St. Patrick’s Day is one week from today so I wanted to share something fun with you all. I loved being able to make heart shaped cinnamon rolls for breakfast for my kiddos for Valentine’s day. So I thought why not make shamrock cinnamon rolls for St. Patty’s Day.
They are so easy to make and the kids can start there day off with a little green! You use canned cinnamon rolls and shape them to form a shamrock. Then just add a little green food coloring to the frosting before you drizzle it over the shamrock rolls.
- 1 (12.4 oz) tube Pillsbury Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
- 2–3 drops green food coloring
- green sugar sprinkles, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Open package of cinnamon rolls. Take 2 rolls and unroll them. Take off about 1 inch of dough from both rolls and set aside. These will be used to make the stem.
- On a baking sheet, shape one of the unrolled cinnamon rolls into 2 of the clover leaves for the shamrock. Do the same with the second roll placing it next to the first rolls making the for leaves of the shamrock.
- The put together the 2 inch pieces you broke off adding it to the shamrock leaves making a stem.
- repeat with the remaining dough. You will end up with 4 shamrock cinnamon rolls.
- Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
- While the rolls bake, add the icing to a bowl and mix with the food coloring to make a green frosting.
- Place frosting into a quart sized freezer back and set aside.
- Remove rolls from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.
- Take bag of icing and snip off a corner of the bag creating a small hole to pipe the frosting on the rolls. Pipe frosting on rolls and sprinkle with green sugar sprinkles if desired. Makes 4 shamrock shaped rolls.
