Halloween Cinnamon Rolls
Below I’ve included all of the ingredients you’ll need to make Halloween rolls, as well as a list of my best tips and tricks for making cinnamon roll intestines.
Open the cans of cinnamon rolls and carefully place them on the prepared baking sheet.
Carefully begin to unravel each cinnamon roll and twist and coil them on the sheet pan to look like zombie intestines. Make sure you leave some space in between, as they will expand slightly when baked.
Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are a light golden brown.
While cinnamon rolls are baking, prepare your frosting (aka red zombie blood).
In a small mixing bowl, combine the icing that was included with the cinnamon rolls (or homemade cream cheese icing) with drops of red gel food coloring, and stir with a spoon until fully combined. **The amount of red food coloring will ultimately depend on the type you use and how bright of red you want it to be. I recommend adding 1-2 drops at a time, stirring, and adding more as needed until desired level is reached.
Use an offset spatula or spoon and immediately drizzle and spread the frosting over the warm cinnamon rolls. Don’t worry about it being perfect-looking – the messier the better, since this makes it look like real zombie guts.
Add decorations, if desired and serve with sides such as fruit, scrambled eggs, and bacon.
Enjoy your fun and delicious Halloween breakfast!
Store leftover Halloween cinnamon rolls in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. If desired, you can re-heat individual servings in the microwave for 15-20 seconds at a time, until heated.
If you use the jumbo size cinnamon rolls and bake in a glass baking dish, the cinnamon rolls may need to be baked longer.
