a few simple ingredients

The base for our Halloween cinnamon roll spiders is a package of cinnamon roll dough. How easy is that? Of course, if you wish, you can make your rolls from scratch, but bought dough is fine.

start with Cinnamon Rolls

Bake your rolls as instructed on the packaging. Remove from oven and cool.

Preparing the frosting

While they are cooling take your frosting and divide it into separate bowls. Add food coloring  to make your colors. I recommend letting your kids go wild with colors of their choice.

Frosting the easy kid friendly Halloween treats.

Use knives and spoons to spread frosting on the cooled cinnamon rolls and add candy eyes.

But they are a fun project for older kids too. They would be great to make together for a class party or Halloween gathering (If they last that long).
