Chocolate Chip Caramel Rolls

As a teenager, I keep active with sports and friends. But baking is my favorite hobby. My five older brothers eat these delicious breakfast rolls right out of the oven! —Julia Holm, Northfield, Minnesota

  • Makes
    1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3-3/4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • FILLING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • SYRUP:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, oil, sugar, salt and 3 cups flour; beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead in chocolate chips until dough is smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle. Spread butter over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; gently press into dough. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
  • In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cream; pour into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Arrange rolls cut side up over syrup. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 50 minutes.
  • Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to a serving platter. Serve warm.

    These rolls were pretty easy to make and the chocolate chips added a special twist compared to other cinnamon rolls that I have made in the past. But, mine came out a little dry and with very little caramel sauce. I added some icing on top, which would actually be the bottom, and they tasted much better.

    Not sure if I did something wrong, but I found this a very difficult recipe to make. I followed the recipe per verbatim and these were not tasty at all.

    Very easy dough to work with. I just did by hand- didn't use the mixer. Nice big rolls! Will be our Christmas morning treat this year.
