Here’s the deal with these bunny shaped cinnamon rolls… They are the EASIEST holiday treat I have ever made. Seriously.

Took me less than 5 minutes to prep these on a tray and 13 minutes for them to bake to golden perfection. That makes them an ideal breakfast recipe for Easter. Less time in the kitchen and more time building memories with your family!

Recipe Features:

  • Easy to Customize
  • Would Definitely Make Again

Cinnamon Roll Bunnies Ingredients:

I mentioned above, this is a one ingredient recipe. All you need is:

  • 1 can of cinnamon rolls

Optionally, you could have some decorations like sprinkles or candy. We opted for a more simple look and love the simplicity! Everyone instantly recognized the shape and couldn’t wait to devour their little bunny roll.

OR you could even make these with a classic cinnamon roll recipe. Either way, these will be adorably delicious.

How to Make Bunny Shapes from Cinnamon Rolls:

I really love to keep things simple in the kitchen, which means I did not get crazy with this design. It was very basic and took less than five minutes of prep time. Here is how to create your bunny using one and a 1/2 cinnamon rolls:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  2. Open the can of cinnamon rolls. Pull the cinnamon rolls out onto a cutting board and set the frosting to the side for later.
  3. Using a sharp knife, cut two of the cinnamon rolls into 4 pieces, trying to keep the shape like ears with a slightly slanted angle.
  4. Place 1 full cinnamon roll onto your prepared baking tray.
  5. Using a little water, attach two ears to the top of the roll in a bunny position.
  6. Continue with the remaining rolls.
  7. Bake 13 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  8. Cool, frost, and enjoy!

Tips for Bunny Shaped Cinnamon Rolls from a Can

We kept things fairly simple but have big plans for the next time we make these. Here are some thoughts:

  • You can gently mold the ears using your fingers into your desired shape. We didn’t mind the rugged look, but it would be simple to create a more rounded appearance.
  • Using water to connect the ears isn’t necessary, but does help secure them a little better to the bunny head base.
  • Use raisins, chocolate chips, sprinkles, or colored frosting to decorate your bunnies.
