This cinnamon roll Christmas tree is going to be one of the easiest things that you’re going to love making! Not only is great to make to have read for Christmas morning, but you can also use the cinnamon roll Christmas tree as gift to your neighbors and friends! Who doesn’t love the amazing smell of cinnamon, topped with the delicious flavor of the icing and roll? It’s like a perfect little combination of all things happy in one bite.
My cinnamon roll Christmas tree is so easy to make! The key to making this is that you DON’T PUT ALL together and then bake it. You have to bake each layer separately, and then stack them up with the icing as the glue. I tried baking all of the layers together, and I totally wasn’t thinking…so it totally failed LOL! That’s okay, the family didn’t care what it looked like. They happily ate every last bite without any type of complaints.

Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree Recipe
As I stated before, you have to make the layers separately. Here’s what you need and how you have to make the cinnamon roll Christmas tree:
Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree
- 1 can of Cinnamon Rolls (refrigerated)
- 1/2 tablespoon of christmas sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Open cinnamon rolls package, and cut each cinnamon roll into quarters.
- Roll the cinnamon roll pieces into ball shapes.
- Once rolled into ball shapes, place them into groups of: 10, 8, 6, 4, 3, and 1.
- Make a circular pattern out of them. For the grouping of 10, place 2 in the middle and the rest surround it. For the layers of 8 and 6, place one in the middle and surround it with the remaining ones. Then join the groupings of 4 and 3 together in their shapes, and the lonely 1 will be by itself. Place them on a parchment lined cookie sheet or a silpat on a cookie sheet.
- Bake for approximately 9 minutes, or until a beautiful golden brown color.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Ice your first layer of 10, this is your base, and then build up with alternating layers and icing.
- When your cinnamon roll Christmas tree is completely built, sprinkle on your holiday sprinkles. I used Wilton's Nonpariels.
