“Zombie Guts” Halloween Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 ¾ cup warm water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp red food coloring
  • 1.5 cups red velvet box cake mix (dry)
  • 2.5 cups flour
  • For the Filling:
  • ⅓ cup melted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-3 tsp milk

Instructions

  • Combine yeast, brown sugar, and warm water in mixer bowl. Whisk thoroughly and sit for at least 5 minutes until bubbly.
  • Add in salt, box cake mix, optional food dye and flour a little at a time, mixing in between with a dough hook until you have a dough texture.
  • Scrape the sides, roll into a ball, cover, and let rise for 1 hour.
  • After an hour, flour a large surface and knead for a few minutes, then roll out into a large rectangle. Cut sides that are uneven.
  • Mix together melted butter and brown sugar, and sprinkle over your dough. Sprinkle cinnamon as evenly as possible. Flatten with a rolling pin.
  • Roll up into one long roll, then cut every 2 inches. Once rolled, unroll each of them and fold in half.

  • Arrange in a greased 8×8 inch baking dish so that it looks like “guts.” Cover and let rise another 45 minutes. 
  • While dough rises, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Remove cover from dough and bake at 350°F for 25 – 30 minutes.
  • Once finished cooking, whisk together glaze ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and drizzle over rolls.
