Make snowman bottoms

For the bottom of each snowman, roll 6 dough balls flat with a rolling pin. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle some of the remaining cinnamon and sugar on top of each of the flattened dough circles.

Make snowman middles and tops

To make the middle and top of the snowmen, repeat the process with the remaining 6 dough balls. Divide each ball into two pieces, about 2/3 and 1/3 to make 6 medium and 6 small dough balls. Roll them flat, brush each with butter, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and add a dollop of the cream cheese mixture.

Bake rolls

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Bake each pan of rolls for 12-15 minutes. (To prevent the rolls from browning too much, lightly place a piece of aluminum foil over the top of the rolls in the oven after they've baked for about 8 minutes.) Allow the rolls to cool for about 10 minutes.

5

Assemble snowmen

Place wooden skewers into the largest, bottom rolls.

Glaze snowmen

In the microwave, melt a can of cream cheese frosting (approximately 30 seconds). Stir and pour into a squirt bottle. Place one snowman on a plate and begin squeezing the cream cheese frosting on top, rotating the plate as needed to coat the entire thing. This is more of a glaze and doesn't need to completely "frost" the entire snowman.

Using a spatula, place the cinnamon snowman onto a drying rack to drip-dry. Repeat this icing process with the remaining snowmen. The frosting left on the plate can be spooned back into your squirt bottle, reheated and repoured after each one.

Add candy eyes, buttons and noses to each snowman before the frosting completely hardens.
