Fried Monster Kolaches

Fried Monster Kolaches

It is no trick that these Fried Monster Kolaches are a great sweet treat.



  • 12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Food coloring


  • 1 can raspberry pie filling
  • Slivered almonds
  • Candy eyes


  1. Pour oil 2 to 3-inches deep into a sauce pan or an electric frying pan, and heat to medium high setting or 350 degrees F.
  2. Kolaches: Flatten each roll into a 3-inch circle. Press the center of each flattened roll until the middle of the dough is almost translucent. Drop each shaped roll into the oil and fry both sides until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towel.
  3. Icing: Mix heavy cream and powdered sugar together. Divide icing into three bowls. Add either purple, orange or green food coloring into each bowl. Mix and add more coloring to achieve desired color.
  4. Dip monsters into the icing so that the outside of the kolachy is iced.
  5. Finishing: Place eyes before the icing dries. Spoon raspberry pie filling into the center of the kolachy. Arrange almonds around the mouth of the monster to create teeth.
