  • Combine sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Roll pie dough onto a work surface and cut each circle into 16 wedges. Lightly spread butter onto each piece of dough stopping about 1/2 inch from the edge. Place 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon miniature chocolate chips on the buttered portion of the dough pieces.

  • Lightly moisten the point of each wedge with water and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Roll each wedge from the outside toward the point, creating a croissant-shape; pinch edges closed.

  • Beat egg white in a bowl, adding enough food coloring to reach desired color. Dip the top of each croissant-shaped dough in egg white mixture and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle each with cinnamon-sugar and top with sprinkles. Place 2 miniature chocolate chips on 1 end of each for the "eyes".

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I've only tried with cinnamon and sugar so far- next try will be adding peanut butter instead of butter to the chocolate and skipping the cinnamon. The possibilities are endless!

Red hots can be used in place of the miniature chocolate chips.
