Prep Time: 20 min
Total Time: 35 min
Servings: 5

Start your Thanksgiving morning with a sweet roll. Everyone will gobble, gobble them up!


  • 1 can (496 g) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Cinnamon Rolls with Icing (5 count)
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 10 candy eyeballs
  • 5 pieces candy corn
  • 5 red mini candy-coated chocolate candies
  • 15 mini pretzel sticks, cut in half


  1. Heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  2. Open can of rolls; set icing aside. Separate dough into 5 rolls; place about 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Unroll each roll about 1 inch; tuck dough into roll to create neck of turkey.
  3. Bake 19 to 21 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie 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. Spread 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 look like turkey’s feet.
