How to Make Halloween Monster Cinnamon Rolls
If it isn’t clear yet, I love any reason to celebrate AND the holidays are the best time to do so!! I am the mom of an active 21 month old (and a chubby little 5 month old) so we need to stay busy around here. As any mom trying not to fail on a daily basis I try to limit my older daughter’s sugar intake so when the weekend rolls around she is usually ready for some kind of “treat.” Since it’s the first weekend in October I HAD to get scary creative. Like what I did there?! Enter, monster cinnamon rolls! I came up with this idea while browsing the Halloween aisles of Target. Don’t most our great ideas come about while strolling through that place!?Here is how you can create “Monster Cinnamon Rolls” in three EASY steps!
Purchase your favorite pre-made cinnamon roll dough or make your favorite cinnamon roll recipe from scratch.
On a baking sheet, prepare the rolls in a circular shape & bake them according to the packaging.
Add icing (usually comes with the pre-made rolls) and decorate with plastic fangs ($1 aisle in Target) and some Halloween sprinkles. I also added chocolate chips for the monster’s eyes but I recommend waiting until the rolls cool down so the chocolate doesn’t melt (live and learn).
