Spooky Chocolate Rolls

DSC_0247

I love Halloween. It is one of the best holidays. There is no pressure to please everyone, make memories, or get every tradition fulfilled. Decorate as much as you want, go overboard or just do a little if you want. If you love decorating, it is easy to create your own stuff, or to find really wonderful stuff at stores. And of course, if you want to treat your family or your self, there are lots of deliciously creepy recipe ideas out there. I happen to love cinnamon rolls for special breakfast on the weekend, and I created this recipe to treat my family the weekend of this upcoming Halloween.  Pre-made frozen cinnamon rolls dressed up just a little with some extra goodies, topped with a cream cheese and Nutella spider web and fresh from the oven, this treat is no trick.

With three, yes, THREE kinds of chocolate, these cinnamon rolls are decadently delicious and terrifyingly spooky with their spider web of Nutella and plastic spider decoration, filled with mini chocolate chips and topped with chocolate pudding mix.  One bite and you will be smitten. I mean of course, of you biting the roll, not the spider biting you!

To begin this easy fix recipe, start with Rhodes Bake N Serv Cinnamon Rolls.

These rolls come with 2 packets of cream cheese icing. So you can easily split the bag into two recipes.

Remove 6 rolls from the bag and allow to thaw until completely thawed out.

On a cutting board, unroll the cinnamon roll, keeping the outside of the roll down on the cutting board.

Place mini chocolate chips on the roll side up, into the cinnamon mixture. You will need about a tablespoon of chocolate chips.

Begin back at the inside part of the roll, and re-roll the cinnamon roll back up.

Place the filled cinnamon rolls onto a parchment sheet on a baking pan. I use Air Bake sheet pans so my bottoms do no burn.

Next, melt about 4 tablespoons of butter, you will also need a box of chocolate pudding mix.

Brush the melted butter onto the top of the roll.

Open the package of pudding mix and sprinkle on about two tablespoons of mix onto the top of the roll.

Once you have covered every roll with the pudding mix, you will have some of the butter and the pudding mix left. Set aside the mix for another use, and top the rolls with whatever butter is left.

Allow the rolls to proof or rise until they are doubled in size.

Preheat your oven to 415 degrees.

Bake your rolls in your 415 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until the rolls are golden brown.

The pudding will still be a little powdery and we will take care of that next step.

Once the rolls have cooled about 10 minutes, use the pre-made packets of cream cheese icing to add to each roll.

Swirl the icing on with a knife or spatula and allow it to mix with the powdery pudding mix, this will give the icing a chocolate flavor.

Open a snack or small baggie and add two tablespoons of Nutella into the baggie. Snip off a corner of the baggie with scissors.

This corner will allow a thin line of Nutella to come out, use that to add a swirl of Nutella to the icing.

Once the swirl is done, take a butter knife and going into the center of the swirl, put the knife down and pull out 4 short strokes from the center.

DSC_0237

Go back to the roll and in the middle of the other lines, pull from the outside in and add four more strokes into the center of the roll.

Now you have a spider web.

Add a plastic spider from the dollar store and breakfast is ready!

Yum YUM!

Each roll serves one.
HAPPY HALLOW-SCREAM! !!!!
