Easy Homemade Sweet Rolls

There’s something so special about making homemade rolls. Especially in the winter, when it’s oh-so cold outside and you just want to get cozy. It’s the kind of 1-dish recipe that puts a smile on everyone’s faces when they see them sitting on the counter and that smell – so delicious! They are perfect to bake for any occasion and since baking is one of my favorite ways to show how much I care, I couldn’t wait to make these and share them.

How To Make this Sweet Roll Recipe

  1. Combine 2 cups flour, sugar, dry yeast and salt in stand mixer bowl and mix with bread hook attachment until blended. Place water and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 15 second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F. Butter won’t melt completely). Add to flour mixture with egg, mixing on low to combine. Mix on medium for 2 minutes, scraping bowl. Add 1 cup of flour, mix another minute on medium heat, scraping sides of bowl. Continue to stir in just enough remaining flour so that dough forms a ball that doesn’t stick to sides of bowl, about 3-4 more minutes. Transfer dough to a floured countertop.

Roll Dough

  1. Roll dough into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle using a rolling pin. Spread chocolate hazelnut spread over dough, stopping 1/2-inches from the edges on the long sides. Beginning at long end of each rectangle, roll up tightly. Pinch seams to seal. Cut into 12 equal pieces. TIP: Use unflavored dental floss instead of a knife to cut rolls. To do, cut a piece of floss about 12 inches long. Slide floss under the roll; bring the ends up and cross over to cut each slice. Place, cut sides down, in prepared a 9×13 inch baking dish sprayed lightly with cooking spray. Place rolls in a warm (175 degrees F.) oven for 15 minutes. Should be just about doubled in size. Remove from oven, increase heat to 350 degrees F. Bake rolls for 20-22 minutes or until baked through. Remove and let cool.
  2. Place powdered sugar and heavy cream into a medium bowl whisking to combine. Should be a nice drizzling consistency. Add more cream to thin or more powdered sugar to thicken. Drizzle icing over rolls and serve with warmed or room temperature.

    Can I make them not cook them and freeze them for a couple of days , put in refrigerator overnight to thaw and cook in morning?

  2. Cookin Canuck

    Chocolate and hazelnut is one of my favorite dessert combinations, so I’m thinking these cinnamon rolls would win me over in one bite.

    It’s only 6am here, which means I totally have time to get my breakfast on! These are GLORIOUS!

      I think it’s two packets. I went to the Fleischmann Beginner’s Caramel Roll Recipe and it indicates 2 packets to 1 1/2 cups of water
