I’ll be starting Halloween morning with these Bloody Guts Cinnamon Rolls for my girls and Peter. It’s the perfect way to start the spooky day. Like everything I make, they’re super easy and quick so I can do it before I send them off to school. Or in this case, Sunday morning.
Since Halloween is full of sweet treats, I definitely like to fill the girls up with some fruits and veggies. Eating healthy and balanced meals that day is super important to me. This helps avoid a stomach ache at the end of the day. Just because it’s healthy, doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! My Pumpkin Taco Stuffed Bell Peppers or my Spooky Spaghetti Squash with my homemade marinara sauce are the perfect examples of a healthy, fun meal.
Bloody Guts Cinnamon Rolls
Halloween morning breakfast:
I paired the bloody guts cinnamon rolls with some fruit and a “bloody” drink. Then, I mashed up some strawberries and coated the rim of it to look like guts. After, I added a dash of strawberry mio to their water and stuck a fake syringe in the drink.
Hot to make bloody guts cinnamon rolls:
First, you’ll need a 9×13 inch baking dish or pan. Take your cinnamon rolls, unravel them into single strands of dough and coil them into the dish. The idea is for these to look like intestines so be creative!
As you bake these, the next step is to create your blood. I wanted mine to be a bit more thick so I added some extra ingredients in and some red food dye.
After your guts have baked in the oven, it’s time to make them bloody. Drizzle your blood over the cinnamon rolls.
I added some fingers and eyeballs because, why not?! It’s Halloween so feel free to have fun with this.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Pre-made cinnamon roll packages
- Powdered sugar
- Red food coloring
Bloody Guts Cinnamon Rolls
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Open your cinnamon rolls and set the icing aside for later.
Unravel your cinnamon rolls into single strings of dough. Then, twist, turn and coil them on a 9x13 inch baking pan or dish. Be creative! You're going to want them to look like intestines.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, add the two tubs of icing provided, 1/3 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of heavy whipping cream and red food coloring. Add food coloring until reached desired color. I was going for a deep red.
Remove the cinnamon rolls and let them cool for 10 to 15 minutes.
Pour over the red icing and top with some spooky Halloween decor. I used fingers and eyeballs!
