    2 people made this

    Serves: 5 

    • 450g ready-made cinnamon roll dough, such as Jus Rol®
    • 5 raisins or currants

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
    2. Unroll the dough of 1 cinnamon roll and cut in half. Roll up one half to form the body; set aside.
    3. Cut 1/3 of the remaining strip of dough and roll up to form the tail. Roll up the remaining strip of dough to about the halfway point to form the head. Slice through the remaining unrolled portion and fan out the pieces to form the ears.
    4. To attach the tail and head to the body, wet the dough with water, then press the pieces together. Spread out the ears and pinch them at the tips to shape.
    5. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet by carefully lifting with a spatula or scraper. Repeat with remaining dough to form as many bunnies as there are rolls in your packet.
    6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Slide parchment with bunnies onto a rack to cool slightly.
    7. Spread the icing from the packet onto the warm bunnies. Press a raisin or currant on the head to form eyes.

    They got a bit too puffy and lost a bit of the "bunny " look as they baked.... Don't know if it it's how I rolled them or what.  -  04 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    You definitely need store-bought cinnamon rolls to do this, or at least use a recipe in which the dough comes out really flat. I used a cinnamon roll recipe that yielded a very puffy dough, which is difficult to shape into a bunny in the first place, and it loses what definition it had after it's been baked (looks like a blob).  -  29 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Adorable! I substituted the raisins for gummy candy though.  -  24 Feb 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
