Apr 26, 2018


  • 1 can (5 count) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 5 candy corns
  • 5 red mini candy-coated chocolate candies
  • 10 candy eyeballs
  • 15 mini pretzel sticks, cut in half


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    Set icing aside. Separate dough into 5 rolls; place about 3 inches apart on baking sheet. Unroll each roll about 1 inch; tuck dough into roll to create neck of turkey.
  • 3
    Bake 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from baking sheet to cooling rack; cool 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, cook bacon until crisp; drain on paper towel-lined plate. Cut bacon slices in half. Tuck 4 halves of bacon into back of each cinnamon roll so they stick up and look like tail feathers.
  • 5
    Drizzle tops of rolls with icing. Decorate turkeys with candy eyeballs, candy corn and candy-coated chocolate candies. Before serving, place halved pretzel sticks underneath each turkey to resemble turkey’s feet.
