Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Rolls

I started adding chocolate chips to my cinnamon rolls because several children didn't like the raisins in them. The chocolate and cinnamon are a fun flavor combination. My family loves them, and so does my Sunday school class. —Patty Wynn, Pardeevlle, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 25 min./batch
  • Makes
    4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 4 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 2-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 3 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 14 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 package (10 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons whole milk

Directions

  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, eggs, honey, salt and 3 cups flour; beat on low for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a large greased bowl, turning once. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into 4 pieces. Roll each into a 14x8-in. rectangle; spread with butter. Combine the brown sugar, chips and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges and press into dough.
  • Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut each into 12 slices. Place cut side down in 4 greased 13x9-in. baking dishes. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks.
  • For glaze, in a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla and enough milk to reach desired consistency; drizzle over warm rolls.
Editor’s Note: This recipe can be halved to fit into a mixing bowl.

    This is a really tasty recipe. I made it on Christmas Eve. I only had regular morsels, but it didn't make a difference. The honey gives it a nice taste.
