As a young kid I was always really into holidays. Halloween to me was better than Christmas and I loved the weeks leading up to Halloween. Our Thanksgiving is in the beginning of October so after Thanksgiving most stores get everything out for Halloween and thats when I would get really excited.

My mom wasn’t one for baking, but my grandma always was. She would always make fun sweets, but nothing beat her apple crisp. I wanted to start making more fun things for my kids in the weeks/days leading up to Halloween to get them as excited as I used to be for the holiday, because let’s face is what is more fun than getting dressed up in your favourite costume and going door-to-door for free candy? Nothing! So I like to have fun with it too since I can’t really do the Halloween things myself, my kids love that I love to decorate and bake fun goodies.

Today, I’m sharing this recipe for delicious Monster Eye Cinnamon Rolls! Not only are they delicious, they look awesome and are a great after school treat!
