This gooey and delicious monkey bread treat with a special holiday twist is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween the homemade way. Put down the Snickers and pick up a spatula because this Frankenstein Monkey Bread isn’t going to make itself.

You can use refrigerated cinnamon roll dough to make this festive treat. Just quarter each roll, and then toss them in a bag with sugar, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Shake it up to coat the rolls. Next, arrange them in an eight-inch square pan coated with non-stick baking spray, and bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.

Let cool for about 10 minutes, and then turn the pan over to remove the square monkey bread. Now you are ready to decorate. Add green food coloring to half of the icing. Pipe the green icing to form Frankenstein’s hair. Use licorice, gumdrops, Necco wafers, and pretzels to decorate the rest of Frankenstein’s face.

All that is left to do is serve this delicious and creative treat to your delighted guests.
