Other ways to make Easter bunny cinnamon rolls:
- Making mini bunnies: Cut an unbaked cinnamon roll in half and roll up one piece to form the body of the bunny. This allows for smaller, individual servings which are perfect for children.
- Using homemade dough: If you prefer homemade cinnamon rolls, cut your dough into strips, roll them, and seal the larger side to form the ears.
- Get creative when making your bunny rolls. Decorate the faces with icing, and add chocolate chips for the eyes, a red candy nose, and almond slices for the teeth. This method gives the bunnies a more detailed and festive appearance.
- Give the Easter bunny rolls bow ties – Simply create the bow ties while the rolls are baking. You can do this using colored icing, fondant, or even fruit roll-ups. If using icing or fondant, roll it out and cut it into bow tie shapes. If using fruit roll-ups, simply cut the fruit roll-up into the shape of a bow tie. Once the cinnamon rolls have cooled slightly, attach the bow ties. If you’re using icing or fondant, you may need to use a bit of icing as “glue” to help it stick. If you’re using fruit roll-ups, they should stick to the warm cinnamon roll without any additional adhesive.
