I love holidays. I also love surprising my kids with fun breakfasts, treats and snacks! Holidays are no exception and they always give me the perfect excuse to whip up fun and creative treats.

With Halloween only a few weeks away I am in full Halloween planning mode. I was trying to think of a fun Halloween breakfast that I could surprise my family with. I love cinnamon rolls. We make them for weekend breakfast all the time and they never last long. I always try to sneak a few in before the kids see them but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. That’s ok though, it’s a fun tradition we have and my kids love help making them too!

When it comes to fun holiday treats I am all about saving time so I used store bought cinnamon rolls for these fun cinnamon roll spiders. Even if it’s not Halloween and your kiddos love spiders these would make the perfect treat!

So grab a can of store bought cinnamon rolls, some black licorice rope, candy eyes, Wilton black Color Mist and let’s get started!
