I made these cinnamon and cream cheese chocolate chip rolls about 2 weeks apart. I made the cinnamon rolls first and they turned out so fluffy and moist that I had to try making them with a twist. Since everyone in my family are chocolate lovers, chocolate was the obvious choice. I regret not having taken a photo before adding the cream cheese glaze or after taking my first bite as it would have shown how well the dough rose. I was truly impressed!
The recipe I decided to try, I had already pinned on Pinterest for future use. It was an easy to follow recipe by Culinary Couture…with much better photos. Ha!
My second attempt didn’t turn out as well as the first. I’m not sure what the problem was. Maybe the butter in the cinnamon rolls helped them turn out better. It could of course have been the rising or dryness of the dough… anything really. Oh well, they were delicious any way. I always seem to end up with more rolls then the recipe says to make. I guess I just like making them smaller.
For the cream cheese filling I used the recipe from EATDOC. I usually chop up a block of between 50-70% chocolate rather than use pre-made chips. I also add more than called for in the recipe. So just add chocolate to taste…would be my advice.
Once I get back in the swing of writing I’ll start typing up the whole recipe again for easier use. But I hope that you’ll put up with me making it easier on myself for now.
Roll out some cinnamon or chocolate rolls on the weekend and take some time to enjoy them. If you want double enjoyment, share them with family, friends or even strangers!
Most of all have fun!!
