Heart Shaped Dinner Rolls

If you have a favorite dough recipe, you can shape the dough into heart shaped rolls before baking them. If making your own dough is not your thing, check out this recipe that uses store-bought dough which makes this a super easy Valentine’s Day recipe!

To shape the rolls:

Roll each roll into a 4-inch drumstick shape (skinny on one end and fat on the other). Cut into the fat end about 1 1/2-inches. Place on a sprayed baking sheet pulling the cut pieces apart and laying them cut side down on the baking sheet to form the top of the heart. Slightly flatten heart shape.

All it takes is some mini pretzel twists and some melted chocolate or candy melts.
