 Chocolate Cinnamon Buns

Chocolate lovers add a twist to your favorite cinnamon rolls. Today we challenge something that we once considered a well-known fact: no other food exists that is superior to cinnamon rolls.  Be that as it may, listen to me… .chocolate cinnamon buns. As in cinnamon buns made with CHOCOLATE. Once you try this you would agree that… chocolate cinnamon rolls are better than regular cinnamon rolls.


  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water 
  • 1/2 cup butter softened 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup cocoa 
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar 
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans 

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add butter, salt, sugar, egg, cocoa, and 1 cup of flour. Beat on medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in the remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Place in a well-greased bowl. Cover and let it rise in a warm place (85 degrees) for 1 hour until double bulk. 

Punch the dough down. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll into a 12 x 6-inch rectangle and spread with butter. Combine 3 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle mixture over rectangle. Roll up (jellyroll style) beginning along the side. Moisten edges with water to seal. 

Cut rolls into 1-inch slices, place slices cut side down in a lightly greased 9-inch square baking pan. Cover and let it rise in a warm place (85 degrees) for 1 hour.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 to 245 minutes. Combine powdered sugar and milk, mixing well. Drizzle glaze over warm buns. Sprinkle tops with pecans.

What are chocolate cinnamon buns?
Chocolate cinnamon rolls are made with a conventional cinnamon roll batter, however, rather than filling them with margarine and cinnamon sugar, they're loaded up with chocolate spread, small chocolate chips, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Which is essentially my number one flavor combo. Ugh, folks, I can hardly sit tight for you to make these and attempt them for yourselves.
