Valentine's Cinnamon Twists (updated)



I first saw this adorable idea of "Love Buns and Pink Hot Chocolate" over at Life Is A Party--Dannyelle turned cinnamon rolls into darling "love buns" and then used her lovely heart-shaped tea cups to hold her pink hot chocolate. I fell in love with the idea and tried it out with a little twist...instead of making cinnamon rolls I did cinnamon twists...let me show you how!


WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
Pillsbury Flaky Twists
{I found them at my local Smith's grocery store}
Parchment Paper
Baking sheet


STEP 1: Unroll the buns and twist the long pieces of dough.
(I twisted holding both ends...kind of like a candy-wrapper)


STEP 2: Take two twisted pieces of dough...shape into a heart...and pinch the 2 spots where the dough meets. Four will fit onto a regular sized baking sheet.

STEP 3: Bake at 350 degrees F for about 9 minutes. The directions on the cinnamon twists say 11-13 minutes, but I did 11 minutes once and they were over-baked.


STEP 4: Take them out of the oven and let cool for a couple minutes, then pipe the frosting that was in the Pillsbury tube (I put the frosting into a small ziplock bag and snipped off the end) onto the cinnamon twists. 


Enjoy your Valentine's Cinnamon Twist with a glass of milk or cup of white hot chocolate, turned pink (with a couple drops of red food coloring) of course! Perfect for Valentine's brunch, dessert at a party, or a late-night sweet treat!
