  • Preheat your oven. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Fold the dough into even halves, the middle spot will be the pinch point that forms the bottom of the heart.
  • Roll the two ends toward the middle, shaping them into a heart shape.
  • Place the heart shaped cinnamon rolls onto your prepared baking pan and bake cinnamon rolls for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Once done baking, remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before icing.
  • To make the cream cheese icing, mix together softened cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
  • Spread the cream cheese icing onto cinnamon rolls and decorate with sprinkles. Serve warm!

If you want to dress these adorable heart shapes up, you can add a little food coloring to the icing to make pink or red hearts. You can even use several different colors like conversation hearts!
