How to make it

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm milk. Mix in the honey, butter, salt, and eggs.
  • 2. Add flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a slightly greased bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour.
  • 3. After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine sugars, cocoa and cinnamon.
  • 4. Roll dough into a 16x24 inch rectangle. Spread dough with the butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon mixture.
  • 5. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  • 7. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt.
  • 8. Left rolls cool slightly and frost them while they are still a little warm

    Thanks for the filling and icing secrets. I need a recipe for the school bake sale tomorrow, but unfortunately I'm just not ambitious enough to make the dough from scratch. Think I'll use the back-of-the-box recipe for the dough with your filling and icing. Adding the cocoa is a fantastic idea!
