Chocolate cinnamon rolls are indulgent perfection for breakfast.
Let’s be honest. This chocolate cinnamon roll is completely over the top, when it comes to breakfast food. This is special-occasion breakfast food, best served to a crowd so they can swoon over your hard work. Mother’s Day is coming up, you know, and wouldn’t she be impressed if you made these instead of thwacking a can on the counter?
I made these a while ago but am only getting around to sharing them with you now (sorry). When you have lots of recipe ideas floating around in your head, and only a limited amount of time to make and share them, some things just have to wait!
However, you won’t have to wait long when you make this chocolate cinnamon roll recipe. In fact, I recommend mixing these up the night before (like tonight, maybe?) and letting the rolls rise in the fridge. After a quick preheat of the oven, you’ll have warm, gooey cinnamon rolls ready before your kids even manage to wipe the sleep from their eyes
These rolls are sweet, to be sure, so you can make them smaller if you like by rolling the dough out longer and then cutting more rolls. With chocolate in both the dough and the filling, you won’t find need for it on top unless you have a serious sweet tooth! You can even skip the chocolate chips inside if you like, for a more subtle chocolate flavor.
Chocolate cinnamon rolls are best served while still warm from the oven and right after drizzling with glaze, but they do reheat well. Simply cover any uneaten rolls with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator, and then when ready to eat, slice off as much as you wish and pop into the microwave for 30 seconds.
