I love, love, love how fun and easy these tasty brains are to make! This cinnamon roll recipe would be great to make around Halloween for breakfast with the kids or as a spooky after dinner dessert.

Cinnamon roll brain recipe:

Supplies:

  • 10″ round baking dish
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Butter knife

Ingredients:

  • 2 – 17.5 oz containers of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls
  • Non stick baking spray
  • Red food coloring

Tip: homemade cream cheese icing can also be added to the top of the casserole 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.
