Spooky Spiders


Rhodes™ Cinnamon Roll or Rhodes Anytime!™ Cinnamon Roll
icing, included with rolls
black sugar sprinkles
candy eyes
black gum drop
corn syrup
black licorice laces


Microwave or bake roll following instructions on package. Let cool 2 minutes. Spread icing over roll and sprinkle with black sugar sprinkles.

Poke holes in both sides of roll and press licorice legs in them.


Mummy Mini Pizzas


8 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1/3 cup pizza sauce
8 string cheese
sliced olives


Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Flatten each roll into a 3-4-inch circle. Place on a sprayed baking sheet. Top each one with about 2 teaspoons pizza sauce. Poke each one several times with a fork to prevent bubbles from forming. Bake at 350°F 8-10 minutes. While pizzas are baking tear 1 string cheese for each pizza into thin strips. Remove pizzas from oven and place 2 olive slices on each for eyes. Layer cheese strips in random fashion to resemble mummy bandages. Trim any strips that are too long. Return to oven and bake an additional 1-2 minutes to melt cheese slightly.


Yummy Mummy Dogs


Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
bun length hot dogs


For each Mummy Dog, cut one dinner roll in half. Roll each half into a 22-24-inch rope. Wrap one rope around hot dog from bottom up 4 1/2 inches. Cut a 1 1/2 inch piece off of the second rope and set aside. Wrap the second rope around the hot dog from the bottom up 4 1/2 inches going the opposite way. Wrap the 1 1/2 inch piece around the top of the hot dog.
Place Mummy Dogs on a sprayed baking sheet and bake at 350°F 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven, cool slightly and add mustard eyes. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard.
