These cinnamon snails were inspired from a video I saw on Tiktok where they had a cinnamon snail disaster!

So I set to work to figure out the best way to recreate this idea successfully – I hope you love these cinnamon snails as much as I do.

Cinnamon Snails

You won’t have any trouble at all making adorable snails with just these two items.

Please follow the step by step recipe and instructions below to have a no fail cinnamon snail breakfast:

  • 1 tube, 12.4 oz, 8 rolls, unbaked cinnamon rolls
  • 16 foil cupcake liners

Tip: My pampered chef bar board (cutting board) has a ruler on it, so it’s super easy to measure! I haven’t found the exact one on amazon, but here is (affiliate link) a similar version that helps you measure while you cut.

Making Cinnamon Snails without a Liner

While cinnamon snails can be made directly on the sheet, your snail will fall over while baking and not sit up like the ones here. 

Use Cupcake liners (2-3 liners per snail works the best for strength) to allow the cinnamon rolls to remain and bake upright. 

You can reuse your liners for more batches by just re-spraying with cooking spray and then moving onto a new batch. 

How to make Cinnamon Roll Cinnamon Snails from TikTok

Preheat oven to 400 degrees or the temperature mentioned on the package of cinnamon rolls.

Place parchment paper onto a baking sheet.

Double up 2 foil cupcake liners and use your thumb to press down one side of the liner on the cookie sheet.

Spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

cupcake liners allow support for your snail to stand

Unroll a cinnamon roll and cut 5″ off of one end.

Using that 5″ piece, cut one end into a triangle and cut about 1/2″ into the center of the opposite end to create the head.

Roll the cut pieces to replicate the snail’s tentacles.
