  2. In a large bowl, mix together the packet of yeast and warm milk using the hand mixer.
  3. Add the sugar and 1 cup of flour and mix once again.
  4. Place a plastic wrap over the bowl and let it sit for 30 minutes to let the dough rise.
  5. Add the salt, eggs, butter and the remaining 3 cups of flour to the mixture and mix until well combined.
  6. Sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and knead the dough for about 5 minutes. 
  7. Spray a bowl with baking spray and place the dough back. Cover with the plastic wrap and let it sit for 1 hour.
  8. Make the filling: in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon and brown sugar until well combined. Set aside
  9. On a flat surface, sprinkle some flour and roll the dough to about 1/4" thick using the rolling pin.
  10. Spread a thin layer of butter on the dough and sprinkle the filling evenly on top.
  11. Roll the dough into a log and cut about 2" wide. Save the end pieces.
  12. Take a cinnamon roll and slightly unroll about 4" of the dough. Fold it inwards and lay the dough flat to resemble a snail.
  13. Using the end pieces, take a small piece and roll into a sausage shape. Place it inside the head of the snail for the hand.
  14. Make the antennas by taking a thin piece of dough and rolling it into a spiral half way. Attach the antennas on top of the head. 
  15. Bake the rolls in the oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

  2. Cover the "snail shell" completely with the cinnamon roll frosting.
