It’s always a pleasure partnering with Fleischmann’s® to bring your new recipes! Love the Fleischmann’s Rapid Rise Yeast. Minimal waiting to get your recipe baking. Simple everyday ingredients are always a plus!

You’ll add your dry ingredients into your stand mixer bowl with the dough hook attached.

Add your warm milk/water/butter mixture to the bowl.

Red food coloring up next!

One large egg up next then give a good mix so the dough kneads for a good 5 minutes.

How pretty is this dough?!

Press out your dough onto a lightly floured countertop. I used parchment paper for an easy clean up.

Cut your dough into 8 equal parts and press into rounds. Cook in your waffle iron for a super quick “roll.”

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 packet Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon red food coloring

Cream Cheese Icing

  • 3 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR margarine softened
  • 2-1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat waffle iron to 350 degrees F. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, dry yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl and stir until blended. Place milk, 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 red food coloring and egg. Mix for 2 minutes at medium speed of stand mixer with dough hook attached, scraping bowl occasionally. Dough will form into a ball. Continue mixing for 5 minutes on medium speed.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured countertop and press out to 1/2 inch thick rectangle, about 9×13 inches. Cut into 8 equal parts and press each part into a round. Place each dough round into waffle maker and cook for 1 minute, until cooked through. Remove and continue with remaining dough rounds. Place onto serving plate.
  • Combine all frosting ingredients (start with 1 tablespoon milk and add more if needed) in a large bowl and beat until creamy. Drizzle over waffle rolls to serve.
