Recipe from Aldi

This week when I went to Aldi to pick up a few groceries. As I was leaving, I grabbed a flyer that was by the exit sign. I tossed it in one of my bags and went on about my business. When I got home and started putting my groceries away, I came across the flyer and set it aside to look at later. Later when I was paging through the flyer this super easy, simple recipe was shown next to the advertisement for cans of cinnamon rolls that were on sale. Well, I just so happened to pick up a few cans of cinnamon rolls and proceeded to make these fun, Pumpkin Shaped Cinnamon Rolls.

Who wouldn’t like to take a big bite out of one of these super, duper cinnamon rolls?!?

  • 2 17.5 oz cans Pillsbury Grands! Deluxe Cinnamon Rolls, Cinnabon
  • 2 drops gel orange food coloring
  • 2 drops gel green food coloring


  • Open cans of cinnamon rolls. Unroll the end of the cinnamon roll about an inch and half or so. Bend it over the top of itself and gently pinch it together, right at the top of the round forming a stem for the pumpkin. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake cinnamon rolls for 20 to 22 minutes or according to package directions. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, remove about 1 1/2 tablespoons of frosting from the included container. Add the green food coloring and stir. Use this for the stem end. Add the orange food coloring to the remaining icing and stir well. Use this for the pumpkin part.
  • Once the rolls have finished baking, let them cool slightly. Frost the stem end with the green tinted icing and the pumpkin part with the orange frosting.
