It’s almost my favorite holiday of the year Halloween! I’ve been making lots of fun and scary little delicious treats like these little monster eye rolls. We’ve also been planning our family’s costumes for the big day too! Everyone is super excited this year.

This year we’re going as a pack of dogs. My little son will be a year in a few weeks and he’s going to bee a little white puppy with brown spots. My daughter is a brown dog with a tutu and pink bows. My son is going with a German Shepard mask. My husband got a basset hound mask and I’m going to dress as a cute tutu-wearing labradoodle. What can I say, we love dogs!

We’ve been having so much fun making Halloween themed treats this week! I’m going to make these monster eyes again on Halloween morning. They work well as a sweet breakfast, a snack or as a dessert. They are so delicious because they’re made with delicious King’s Hawaiian Original Dinner Rolls!

These are so easy to make. You just start with combining some brown sugar and cinnamon in a baking dish.

Then melt some butter in a separate dish. Then dip the King’s Hawaiian Original Dinner Rolls in the butter and then coat the sides and bottoms of the rolls in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Next just place these in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350° until they’re warmed through. Then mix some powdered sugar with a few tablespoons of milk and spoon over the rolls.
