Less than two weeks 'til the big day, and if you are still struggling to find something special for your loved one...look no further. As I said earlier, the easiest way to someone's heart (man or woman) is through their stomach. My parents started a Valentine's Day Breakfast tradition years before I came along, and it kind of stuck. They both worked at night, so instead of trying to take off work and fight the Valentine's Day dinner crowd, they decided it was easier to do a breakfast date. After all, breakfast is the most important meal of the day...and with things like french toast and cinnamon rolls - it is definitely the most delicious. So back to your Valentine's Day plans - the name of the game is Breakfast in Bed. It is scientifically proven that breakfast in bed makes people love you even more than they already did. And you get bonus points for it being homemade. So, we took our 1 Hour Cinnamon Rolls and dressed them up for the holiday. Simple, delicious, and made with just the right amount of love - you got yourself the perfect Valentine's Day present.

*Makes about 18 Rolls
Will it be alright to assemble the rolls ahead of time and then bake later or is it best to put them in the oven after letting them sit?
It is best to put them right in the oven after sitting, but if you want to save them until later, you can store the dough in the fridge. Just make sure you cover them with saran wrap.
The proportions for this are really off. I ended up with way too much filling and icing. Even made 1/2 recipe for icing and had too much after amply coving rolls. Other than that they taste delicious...just a bit wasteful.
Thanks so much for letting us know - I guess we just really like our frosting over here! We will put a note in the recipe though.
Would it be okay to use a regular mixer with a whisk attachment for all the mixing? For those without a dough hook?
Unfortunately, it won't work. For yeast based mixes you really need a dough hook. If you don't have one, places like "Bed Bath & Beyond" sell them by themselves - and they are pretty cheap!
