Cinnamon Roll GUTS | Halloween Recipe Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because I get to make SPOOKY recipes like this one!

These cinnamon rolls are scary easy - heck, you don't even have to know how to bake to make them!

That's right; while all of the effort of making your own cinnamon rolls from scratch should be applauded, this recipe actually works BETTER when you use the canned variety.

All you need is your favorite cinnamon rolls - just make sure that they can pull apart. It seems that the Pilsbury brand does NOT do this. So DON'T buy Pilsbury brand. I'm sure they taste great (in fact, I know they do!) but they simply won't work with this recipe. I had the most success with the Our Family value brand, but I'm sure there are other brands that have un-roll-able cinnamon rolls.

  1. Preheat the oven according to the instructions on the packaging. Open the cans and unroll the cinnamon rolls by holding one end and unrolling the cinnamon roll until it is a long strip of dough.
  2. Arrange the unrolled cinnamon rolls by twisting, swirling and folding the rolls so that they resemble intestines. You may not use both cans - it just depends on the size of your dish.
  3. Bake the cinnamon rolls according to the instructions on the packaging. Meanwhile, mix the icing with the red food coloring to make a dark red icing.
  4. When the cinnamon rolls are ready, microwave the icing for 15-30 seconds so that the icing is viscous and pourable. Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls and along the edges of the pan to look like blood spatter. Enjoy warm or room temperature. Enjoy and have a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!
