  1. In bread machine pan, place the first nine ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). Just before the final kneading (your machine may audibly signal this), add pecans and chips. When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a well-floured surface.
  2. Roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle; spread with butter. Combine the brown sugar, pecans, chips and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
  3. Place cut side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the icing ingredients. Drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 1 dozen.
