Ingredients: For the Bear Cinnamon Rolls, you'll need the following ingredients: Dough:

  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons instant yeast
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup milk warmed
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 large egg


  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


  • Sliced almonds
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Black edible gel pen or black icing


  1. Preparing the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, instant yeast, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the warm milk, melted butter, and egg. Mix until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it with a clean cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

  2. Creating the Cinnamon Filling: While the dough is rising, prepare the cinnamon filling. In a small bowl, mix together the softened butter, brown sugar, and ground cinnamon until well combined. Set aside.

  3. Shaping the Bear Cinnamon Rolls: Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to release the air. Roll it out on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle, approximately ¼ inch thick. Spread the cinnamon filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges. Starting from one of the longer sides, tightly roll the dough into a log.

  4. Cutting and Shaping the Bears: Using a sharp knife or a dough scraper, cut the rolled dough into equal-sized pieces, approximately 1 ½ inches thick. Take each piece and gently shape it into a bear's face by pinching one end to create the snout and using your fingers to shape the ears. Place the shaped bears onto a greased baking sheet, leaving some space between them to allow for rising.

  5. Final Touches and Baking: Before baking, gently press two sliced almonds into each bear's face to create the ears. Use mini chocolate chips for the eyes and nose. Allow the shaped bears to rise for another 20-30 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Once the bears have risen, bake them for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  6. Adding the Details: After the bear cinnamon rolls have cooled slightly, use a black edible gel pen or black icing to draw on mouths and any additional facial details you desire. Be creative and have fun bringing your bears to life!

  7. Serving and Enjoying: Serve these adorable Bear Cinnamon Rolls while they are still warm and fresh out of the oven. They are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a delightful dessert. Share the joy with your loved ones and watch as their faces light up with delight.
