Halloween Bloody Guts and Bloody Eyeball Soup


Happy Halloween everyone! Today I have a pair of bloody dishes to share with you, one for breakfast (or dessert) and one for lunch or dinner. As is my theme, these are super simple but fun recipes!


First up, Bloody Guts Cinnamon Rolls. All you need is 1 or 2 tubes of cinnamon rolls (depending on how many people you are feeding!) or a batch of homemade cinnamon roll dough if you're motivated! To make your guts, simply unroll the cinnamon rolls and lay them in a greased 8"x8" pan (use a cookie sheet or 13"x9" pan for 2 rolls), twisting and turning them to look like guts. One note: Pillsbury cinnamon rolls do not unroll! They are more like biscuits with cinnamon on them. If you have the option, go for store brands, I find they usually unroll. But if, like me, you only have Pillsbury, all is not lost. You just need to use a sharp knife to cut the roll into a spiral shape and then you can unroll it. 


Once you have your dough laid out in your pan, bake it at 400 degrees F for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Now for the blood. I had red candy melts that have been hanging out in my cabinet for almost a year so I wanted to use some up. Unfortunately, even melted, they were too thick to really look like good drippy blood. My kids didn't complain cause it still tasted sugary sweet but next time I will stick with coloring the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls red and drizzling it over the top. One thing to keep in mind though is that gel food coloring will work best here - if you only have liquid colors you may have to add powdered sugar to compensate for the added liquid so it's not super runny. 


Next up, Bloody Eyeball Soup! The bloody soup is just plain old tomato soup. You can use your favorite recipe or store bought soup. The eyeballs are made by stacking mozzarella balls, olive slices, and tiny bell pepper or carrot pieces and gently placing them in the soup. You can make some gravestone-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches to go along with the soup - Lil C loved cutting the sandwiches into fun shapes.


I hope you enjoy these recipes and stay safe and warm this Halloween!
