Homemade Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls

I love making specialty cinnamon rolls. It was a tradition when the kids were growing up to make Christmas tree cinnamon rolls, using crescent dough, and when they were older, I started making gingerbread cinnamon rolls. This year, I thought I would make Homemade Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls. These cuties are made with a homemade cinnamon bun recipe that you tweak once you have rolled up to create the cute bunny faces. It is then topped with a simple powdered sugar glaze that is dyed to match the season. They are incredibly easy to make.

Can I Make these Using Store Bought Cinnamon Roll Dough

I definitely recommend using this homemade recipe. The cinnamon rolls will have a much better tastes. However, if you want to make Bunny Cinnamon Buns in a hurry, you can use store bought rolls. You will pick up in this recipe after the cinnamon rolls are cut into slices.

How to Store Leftovers

If you have leftovers of these cinnamon rolls, you can keep them in the refrigerator for a few days. Place them in an airtight container, in the fridge, and they will keep for about 3 days.

You can also freeze the homemade cinnamon rolls. Make sure to let them cool completely. Then, place them in a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 2 months. When you are ready to eat them, let them thaw overnight in the fridge and then heat in the microwave or oven.

Can Homemade Cinnamon Rolls Be Reheated?

Yes, you can reheat homemade cinnamon rolls. This is even easier when you have not already put the glaze on top of the cinnamon buns. When you reheat the rolls after they have been glaze, there is a chance that the powdered sugar glaze will melt into the buns. It will still taste good, but some people like the glaze on top. If this is the case, just add more glaze after they are reheated.

To reheat the cinnamon rolls, place them the microwave for about 10 seconds. Heat them slowly and only until they are warmed. If you heat them for too long, the cinnamon rolls will get hard.

Variations to Easter Bunny Cinnamon Rolls

Make a Face– You can add candy eyes and other candies to make a face on your bunny. You can use melted chocolate to draw the face as well.

Glaze– This is a simple powdered sugar glaze. You can also make a cream cheese glaze.  You can keep the colors for the glaze, use different ones or skip them completely.
