Recipe details

Ghost Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients

  • Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls
  • Candy eyes

Tip: homemade cream cheese icing can also be added to the top of the buns but using the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls is just as good in our opinion! We’ve tried different brands but Pillsbury rolls are always better than any other store brand.

Instructions

1. Open the can of dough and set aside the icing. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.

3. Place rolls onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and create a “squiggle” at the bottom of each center roll.

Tip: be sure to pinch the end of the roll of dough to the “head” of the ghost otherwise it will just spread out when baked and not maintain its shape. One container of Grands cinnamon rolls will make five large spooky cinnamon buns.

Cinnamon roll variations

  • Place the ingredients into an air fryer basket to make air fryer cinnamon rolls.
  • Refrigerate overnight or for at least four hours before cooking to create an overnight breakfast casserole.
  • Place the ingredients into a slow cooker and cook for 2 hours on the low setting to create crock pot cinnamon rolls.
  • Another favorite is drizzling caramel sauce or maple syrup overtop for a truly sweet treat.
