  1. Don’t let the cinnamon rolls touch and be sure to give them a bit of room. You could also unroll them and shape them like hearts, but I’m too lazy for that. Good idea, though, right?
  2. If you really want to be the adult of the year in their eyes, give the kids the sprinkles. Stand back and watch it rain candy hearts.
