Valentines Day* Heart-Shaped Apple Cinnamon Rolls!

Good morning and happy Friday!

For today’s post I wanted to share my heart-shaped apple cinnamon rolls with you! I made these last night for Peter as an early Valentines day treat, since hes going away for a week and wont be here on the actual day. I know chocolate is a Valentines day staple, but Peter doesn’t eat a lot of chocolate so I wanted to do something a little different this year. Instead I decided I would spruce up a regular cinnamon roll and make it into a mini cinnamon apple pie roll -two of Peters favorites, cinnamon rolls and apple pie….who am I kidding, I’m sure those two are everyones favorites!

These were super easy to make so its not much of a recipe post because everything I bought was pre-made. I’m posting this idea for anyone else who is looking for something easy, delicious, and different then the typical chocolate Valentines day desserts.

What you’ll need

– Pillsbury *Cinnabon* Flaky Supreme Cinnamon Roll Dough (makes 5 rolls and comes with icing)

-Apple pie filling

 

What To Do

-Unroll the cinnamon rolls and line the strips of dough with the apple’s from the pie filling

-Roll the dough back up in the shape of a heart

-Once rolled back up, I take a knife and add a layer of the apple jelly from the pie filling on top of each roll before putting in the oven

-bake at 350 for about 20 minutes – or until golden brown

-Remove from oven, let cool for 10 minutes (if you can!), drizzle with icing and enjoy 🙂

I mentioned on Instagram that these puppies got scarfed down immediately after baking. There was no “let cool for 10 minutes” waiting time for us, they smelt soo good, we couldn’t wait!

If anyone tries this idea let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful weekend.

At Home *Starbucks Inspired* Tea Latte Recipe!

Good Afternoon Girlies!

I’ve always been a huge fan of tea but recently discovered lattes, and I’m obsessed! I’ve always thought lattes were coffee based so I was scared to try them(since I don’t like coffee), until my barista at Starbucks recommended a tea latte and now I’m hooked. Every Starbucks reward I earn I always get a Venti English Breakfast Tea Latte, but other then rewards I don’t normally purchase them for myself because they’re pretty pricey. Which is why I decided to invest in a milk frother and start making my own for a fraction of the price. I’m going to show you how to make an English Breakfast latte today, but this recipe makes an amazing London Fog as well, all you need to do is use an ‘Earl Grey’ tea bag instead!

What You’ll Need:

Tea Cup

Tea Bag (of your choice, I prefer English Breakfast)

Milk & Milk Frother (I use this one)

Vanilla Syrup (I use Starbucks Brand here)

Table Spoon

 

Directions:

-Bring water to a boil and pour over teabag of choice

-let steep for 2 minutes (or to desired flavor) then remove bag

-Add two tablespoons of Vanilla Flavored syrup and stir well

-Turn on your frother and pour in about double the amount of milk you would normally put in your tea **but don’t over fill the frother because they do overflow. I usually fill just above the ‘minimum’ line on my frother.

-Once frothed, use a spoon to hold the foamy milk back and pour the warmed milk into your tea, stir, and cover with the foamy milk.

-Grab your favorite cookies, a book, and enjoy!
