Spring is here!! It really is!! Even if the weather isn’t cooperating, the calendar definitely reads springtime. I don’t know about you but I’m so totally over cold weather and winter or cold related anything at this point. I want spring, fun, warm weather stuff. That includes foods! Since Easter is coming, Pillsbury asked me to create a fun recipe using their Cinnamon Rolls to share with you all. I can’t say no to creating cute and fun foods, so I got to thinking…and while I love chicks and bunnies, lambs are also part of the Easter season (and spring!) and I thought this little Lamb Cinnamon rolls recipe would be just so super cute.  It is very easy to make your Easter celebration a little more special with these simple, fun and delicious food ideas.

Pillsbury Lamb Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Ingredients -

1 can of 8 ct. Pillsbury cinnamon rolls

16 chocolate chips

8 mini pink marshmallows, cut in half

1 C. white mini marshmallows, cut in half

1 small package of Twizzler black licorice nibs

1 small round cookie cutter (mine was octogon shaped)

lamb ingredients

 

Directions-

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

#1. Taking one cinnamon roll at a time, flatten it out with your palm. Don’t be afraid to stretch it out as these bake very fluffy. Once it is flattened out use the cookie cutter to cut out the lamb’s head (see photo). Take the excess cinnamon roll from around the edge of the cookie cutter and cut in half.

Fold the 2 halves in half to make the lamb’s ears and tuck behind the head and gently press down (see photo). Place the lamb on a greased cookie sheet.

 

#2. Repeat step number #1 with the other cinnamon rolls.

 

#3. Bake according to the package directions.

 

#4. Remove the cinnamon lambs from the oven and let cool completely. Open the frosting container the comes with the cinnamon rolls and scoop into the sandwich bag and make a small snip in the end with a pair of scissors.

#5. Once the lambs are completely cooled you can start on their faces. Using the sandwich bag with frosting, pipe the frosting onto the lamb’s head to make a face. Use a toothpick to spread the frosting out evenly, if needed.

 

#6. Next place 3-4 white mini marshmallows on the top of the lambs heads. The frosting will act like ‘glue’. Place 2 chocolate chips on the lambs face for eyes and 1 mini pink marshmallow ½ for a nose.

Using the kitchen scissors, snip the black licorice Nibs into small pieces for a mouth.

Lastly, pipe some frosting on the ears. Set aside and let dry.

#7. Repeat steps #5 and #6 for the rest of the lamb’s. Let set 15-20 minutes before serving.

*Store in an airtight container up to 1 week. I do not recommend freezing. 1 Lamb = 1 serving. Makes 8 servings total.
