Isn’t it funny how sprinkles can literally make anything so much better? Maybe I am just a kid at heart, but I am a firm believer that sprinkles make things more exciting and days just a little bit brighter! The other day, I baked these cinnamon rolls (which I gotta tell you, taste AMAZING) but they felt too serious to me! ;)


I had so much fun baking them, but needed to add a little bit more pep to the recipe. I tend to do that with just about everything. But don’t think you have to go on a baking adventure like me to turn your desserts up a notch with sprinkles. I am a sucker for taking store-bought desserts or even cupcakes and adding my favorite sprinkles on top! One of my favorite hacks!




  • 1 loaf of frozen white bread dough, thawed in fridge overnight
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons confetti sprinkles, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 stick butter, softened for icing


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1t confetti sprinkles to a small bowl; mix to combine and set aside.
  3. Roll out bread dough using a rolling pin, keeping dough as long and rectangular as possible. Note: sprinkle flour on your work bench and dough as needed to prevent it from sticking.
  4. Sprinkle confetti sprinkles on the dough, making sure to spread evenly.
  5. Using a pastry brush, add all melted butter to the dough.
  6. Add brown sugar mixture to the top of the dough, spreading evenly.
  7. Roll dough into a log, similar to a jelly roll, keeping as tight as possible.
  8. Once in a log shape, use knife to cut into 1 inch pieces.
  9. Add pieces to a prepared baking dish and set aside; cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for 1 hour in a warm area.
  10. While dough is rising, you can make the icing by adding vanilla, cream cheese, butter, and half of the powdered sugar to a medium bowl and mixing using a hand mixer. Once incorporated, add the other half of the powdered sugar to the mixture and finish mixing.
  11. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown and dough is cooked through.
  12. Add icing to tops of cinnamon rolls and sprinkle confetti. Enjoy!
