Looking for ways to impress your guests this Halloween? Then these spooky Halloween Cinnamon Rolls are a great idea. They’re spooky but delicious and when your Halloween party guest bites into them they burst with cinnamon gooey goodness! This is the perfect Halloween dessert to make for a large crowd. Check out the recipe for my Halloween Cinnamon Rolls below!

Pro tip: Upon doing this recipe I used a cheap superstore brand of black food coloring gel and the dough turned purple, not black. Since I couldn’t find any deep black food gel I ordered one off Amazon. The black food gel I used is below. It doesn’t matter which food gel you use for the orange cream cheese frosting because the frosting starts out white!

Ingredients

Dough

  • 3 ½ cups self-rising flour
  • 3 tsp dried yeast
  • tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • soft gel true black food coloring

Filling

  • ½ cup butter (soften)
  • cup dark brown sugar
  • tbsp ground cinnamon
  • soft gel orange food coloring

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 ounce cream cheese
  • 1 cup powder sugar
  • ¼ cup butter (room temperature)
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • soft gel orange food gel

Instructions

  1. To make the dough, combine all dry ingredients in one large bowl and stir together. In a big microwavable measuring cup add milk, butter, and water then microwave until butter is melted and the liquid is blood temperature warm. Next, add the yeast and sugar then whisk until the sugar is dissolved and the yeast is evenly spread in the liquid. Put the yeast back in the microwave and leave for 10 minutes.

  2. When the yeast gets foamy take it out pf the microwave and whisks in the eggs until fully incorporated. Then add half of the yeast mixture and add some black food coloring and add the remaining of the yeast mixture. It should form a sticky black dough. Cover the dough with clear wrap and give it 1 hour to rise put the dough in a warm place in your kitchen.

  3. Once it has tripled in size put the dough in the fridge for at least 9 hours. In a new bowl add the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and orange food gel and whisk until well-combined cover it with plastic wrap to and put in the fridge as well.

  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Take your dough out of the fridge and let sit on the counter for at least thirty minutes.

  5. Generously flour your workspace and grab some extra flour in your hands and take the dough out the bowl. Make sure your dough ball has a thick coat of flour on it you should be able to see it since the dough is black.

  6. Poke your fingers in the dough and make a rectangle shape then generously flour your rolling pin and evenly roll the dough out on all sides of the rectangle till it’s an 1 inch thick.

  7. Take your filling and spread on the dough leaving an inch between the edge of the dough and filling. Carefully roll the dough up inch by inch and if the dough starts to stick generously place flour under the dough until you’re able to continue rolling till the roll is complete.

  8. Slice your rolls 2 inches thick and place them in a parchment-lined baking pan with a little bit of space in between them. Cover your baking pan with a towel and let the rolls rise again.

  9. Make your orange cream cheese filling by combining your powder sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla extract. Next, add some orange color food gel until you get your desired color of orange.

  10. Place the cinnamon rolls in a hot oven for 30 to 40 minutes. Since the dough is black you will have to poke the center of the roll with a fork to determine if they’re done! Let your cinnamon rolls cool down for 5 minutes and then generously frost the rolls and enjoy.
