Snowman Cinnamon Buns Ingredients:
- Refrigerated cinnamon roll dough with icing or homemade cinnamon rolls
- Rolo Caramel Candy, unwrapped (1 for each snowman)
- Mini chocolate chips (about 3 for each snowman)
- Mini chocolate-coated OREO cookies (1 for each snowman)
- Candy-coated sunflower seeds, orange only (1 for each snowman)
- Jumbo marshmallows (½ for each snowman)
- Pretzel sticks (2 for each snowman)
- Black gel icing
1. Cook cinnamon rolls according to package directions and apply the icing to the cinnamon rolls.
2. Take 2 pretzel sticks and place them on the cinnamon roll, one across each side. (acting as arms)
3. Cut marshmallows in half across the middle. The sticky side will be the bottom of the head. Take a toothpick and use it to pierce a hole in the side of one half. Press an orange candy-coated sunflower seed into the hole. Add two dots with the black gel icing to each side of the sunflower seed. Place the marshmallow head on the cinnamon roll.
4. Press one Rolo Caramel candy against a mini chocolate-coated OREO cookie. There should be enough fudge on the OREO to hold the Rolo candy. If not, rub the Rolo candy against your warm baking pan and then press to the OREO. Position the “hat” on the snowman.
5. Add 3 mini chocolate chips to the top of the cinnamon roll to resemble the snowman’s buttons.
6. Serve immediately or refrigerate in an airtight container.
