  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream (110° to 115°)
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 1 tablespoon hazelnut flavoring syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon hazelnut flavoring syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons hazelnut flavoring syrup
  • Chopped hazelnuts, optional


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add cream, milk, sugar, butter, Nutella, hazelnut syrup, salt, espresso powder and 2 cups flour; beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 20x16-in. rectangle. Combine filling ingredients until smooth. Spread over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 8 slices. Place in a greased or parchment-lined 13x9-in. baking pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Remove from refrigerator; cover and let rise in a warm place until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine confectioners' sugar, butter, buttermilk and hazelnut syrup until smooth. Drizzle over warm rolls. Sprinkle with hazelnuts if desired. Serve warm.
