Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls are a quick, small batch of cinnamon rolls dressed up with sprinkles; perfect for holidays, birthdays or any breakfast or brunch you want to make special.

So, how was your Easter? We decided to celebrate on Saturday (since I don’t get off on Monday and typically need a day to recover after hosting holidays and events) and decided to play up being from Maryland. For weeks now, my aunt, mom and I have been talking about wanting steamed crabs so we decided to get them for Easter. They were incredible! And I believe that’s going to become a new tradition.

But enough about steamed crabs. I’m here to talk about brunch this week. There are a ton of amazing recipes coming your way and I hope you’ll check out what everyone else has made as well.

These cinnamon rolls are so easy to make that I don’t even know why you would by a can of them from the refrigerated section anymore. Seriously, you can prep the dough in about the time it takes to preheat your oven and then it’s only a few minutes more of resting time before these are going in the oven! Then there’s the fact that you can change up the filling to be whatever you want.

Cinnamon Roll Filling Ideas:

  • classic cinnamon sugar
  • apples and cinnamon
  • berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)
  • nuts (almonds, walnuts, cashews)
  • peaches, pumpkin, banana

You can also change up the glaze options as well.

Cinnamon Roll Glaze Ideas:

  • cream cheese
  • vanilla
  • lemon

There are tons of other flavor combinations out there. Are there any different ones you have tried? Let me know in the comments!

I decided to stick with the classic cinnamon/sugar filling for these cinnamon rolls and simply let the Confetti Pastel Sprinkles from Sweets & Treats be what made them extra special. If you wanted to surprise someone for their birthday these would be adorable! As would simply making them just because.

My coworkers will devour any cinnamon rolls that I bring in, no questions asked but I wondered for a second if the smattering of brightly colored confetti sprinkles would turn them off at all. Yeah, I should have known better. There is no such thing. They didn’t even bother to ask me why I added sprinkles, they just devoured them.
