Snow Day and LOVE BUN POPS!

Okay, well today is February 2, 2011 and we have about 6 inches of snow on the ground.  Half of what the weatherman was predicting.  It still was a snow day and school was called off, so we are in the house baking today.  Came up with this idea...Thought that it was such a yummy, cute, and fun treat for the kids and/or to pass out to their friends.  I had a can of cinnamon rolls in the refrigerator, so that can came out to the counter, then I had sucker sticks from Christmas and I pulled those out, next came all the Valentine decorations and the steps  to follow are below:

 I can of cinnamon rolls
 Roll out the large rolls into strips and then re-roll into mini round shapes
 (for hearts pinch in at the top and at the center push in with a knife.)

sample of re-rolling into mini round shapes and then form into hearts, if you'd like!
 make sure to insert your sucker stick at the end where the dough flap ends
 (this will help keep the roll secure when baking.)

Baking:  I LOVE BUN POPS on a greased baking sheet for about 12 to 15 minutes at 325 degrees .
Now on to the fun with decorations!!!

My girls had a ball decorating!  Also, you can use the icing over top
of your LOVE BUN POPS.  We did both!
 Always a staple decoration for Valentine cooking decorating
is the red hot hearts!  My girls love these!

And the finished product was a hit!!!
 Total LOVE BUN POPS out of a regular cinnamon bun can was 24 total.

Package with cello bags, ribbon and stickers.
