Learn how to create an Easter bird’s nest made from cinnamon rolls. They are a fun treat to make and enjoy.
Can we all agree that sometimes the simplest ideas are the best ideas?
In our house, we love to celebrate the holidays.
But sometimes I just don’t have the mental or physical bandwith to go all out.
That’s where this simple treat comes in.
How to Make An Easter Bird’s Nest From Cinnamon Rolls
It starts with a can of cinnamon rolls you purchase from the refrigerated section of your grocery store.
Open the can of cinnamon rolls and place the frosting packet to the side.
Take out one cinnamon roll and start by unraveling it.
Then fold it in half and start to twist it.
Once you have twisted the dough, form a small circle. This wreath forms the bird’s nest.
You want a little room in the middle so the dough has room to rise, but not so much that all the frosting will fall through.
Repeat this process for all the cinnamon rolls.
Bake cinnamon rolls at 350 F for 18 to 20 minutes.
Once cinnamon rolls are baked, allow to cool slightly before frosting.
If you frost them when they are still piping hot, the frosting will slide off.
You want the frosting to puddle in the middle.
When cinnamon rolls are cool, use the frosting packet to fill the middle of all the bird’s nests.
The last step is to add a few jelly beans into the center of the bird’s nest.
The jelly beans become the “eggs” in your Easter bird’s nest.
By the way, you might not think it, but jelly beans are actually quite delicious when eaten with a cinnamon roll!
That’s it! That’s the “recipe”. That’s how you make an Easter bird’s nest from a can of store-bought cinnamon rolls.
