Shamrock Cinnamon Rolls

by Laura

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.
