  • 12 Frozen Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls With Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 3/4 Cup Melting Chocolate


  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set one aside.
  • On one baking sheet lay out 12 frozen cinnamon rolls and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Thaw for 1 1/2 hours at room temperature.
  • Once thawed, but still cold, you'll form the heart shapes.
  • Place two cinnamon rolls together with the "end tails" meeting each other in the middle.
  • Pinch together the part of the cinnamon rolls closet to you forming the bottom V of a heart.
  • Rearrange the tops of the cinnamon rolls to form the humps of the top of a heart. I find it helpful to exaggerate the far apart so when it bakes it stays in a heart shape better.
  • Repeat with remaining cinnamon rolls ending with three hearts on each baking sheet evenly spaced apart.
  • Cover with plastic wrap again and let them rise for about 1 hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Cool for 30 minutes.
  • Snip off one corner of the cream cheese packet and using a back and forth motion, drizzle it over the top of three cinnamon rolls.
  • Repeat with remaining frosting packet and cinnamon rolls.
  • In a small microwave proof bowl, heat melting chocolates for 30 seconds at a time until melted. Stir after each interval.
  • Pour melted chocolate into a piping bag, snip off the tip and drizzle over each cinnamon roll.
  • Serve!
  • *These can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Chocolate will harden, but if you want to reheat them before serving, simply place on a microwave proof plate and heat for 30 seconds.
