Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Cinnamon rolls are one of our favorite breakfast items. I made these cinnamon roll pumpkins for Halloween and they were a big hit. The kids were super excited to try out these Cinnamon Roll Christmas Trees!

Whether it’s for breakfast on Christmas morning or any other day of the month of December, you are going to love making these. The kids will love them for an after school snack too!

You can even set up the sprinkles and the frosting and have each child make their own Christmas Tree Cinnamon Rolls!

The cinnamon rolls are so gooey and full of delicious cinnamon sugar. Serve with some delicious hot chocolate.

Make your cinnamon roll Christmas trees: You will need to unroll the cinnamon roll and then curve the cinnamon rolls up and over to make rows into a tree shape.

Frosting: While your cinnamon rolls are baking, get your frosting ready. Add a drop or 2 of green food coloring to the cream cheese frosting. Mix it up.

Frost: When your rolls are out of the oven and cooled for a few minutes, frost your Cinnamon Rolls Christmas Trees.
