This is one of those recipes that’s so stinkin’ cute but also super easy.
Halloween is a time of year when we eat a lot of “fun” foods.
(Yeah I said “time of year.” It ain’t just a single day in this family – we celebrate for at least a month … but I’m always up for something spooky.)
So I like to spruce up meals and snacks when I can. Which means some are quite elaborate and others… well, are like this!
This dish that has essentially two ingredients: a can of cinnamon rolls and a bag of chocolate chips.
To get this platter of spookiness, bake the cinnamon rolls according to package directions and place the finished rolls in a circle on a plate.
Melt some candy melts or chocolate chips. Candy melts are smoother but I didn’t have any on hand. If you melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, do it at half power 30 seconds at a time.
Put the melted chocolate into a piping bag or a baggie with the corner cut off, and squeeeze out the chocolate into a big and little circle for a spider’s body, along with eight legs, onto one of the rolls.
Then draw a web over the rest. I did this with the straight lines first and then spiraled around to make it look like a web. And don’t worry if it doesn’t look perfect – it’ll be gobbled up soon anyway!
Happy Early Halloween!
