Easy, no yeast cinnamon rolls topped with chocolate is a delicious way to start out the morning. These Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls have been kid approved in our house. Give them a try and see what your family thinks.
Cinnamon rolls made without yeast are a quick and easy breakfast around here.
These rolls can seriously be made, baked, and eaten in about 45 minutes. Give or take a few minutes depending on how quickly you are moving. Just don’t move too quickly and forget a step or ingredient. Been there, done that, and been mad at myself for rushing.
Learn from my mistakes because no one will appreciate rolls that don’t have all the buttery goodness they deserve.
Can I tell you something?
I have a fear of working with yeast. The funny thing is that I have made pizza dough from scratch…and that takes yeast!! The pizza turned out perfectly fine too. So, I don’t know why I shy away from making cinnamon rolls with yeast.
My guess is that I have made these easy, no yeast rolls for years, and I am not a big fan of change. Why mess with a good thing?
Well, other than to change out the flavor combo every once in a while. This is me we are talking about. Making the same thing twice is not something I do very often.
The dough for these easy rolls is very simple to do. All you need is a bowl and a fork. Gotta love not dirtying a whole sink full of dishes, right?
Sift the dry ingredients. Stir in the milk and melted butter until it forms a soft dough. For these rolls my daughter wanted chocolate chips, so we very gently added them to the dough. Knead it a few times with some flour on the counter, and then press with your fingers until you make a rectangle that is 10 inches by 14 inches. Make sure you have a light layer of flour under the dough as you work, so it doesn’t stick too much.
Then comes the good stuff. Melted butter and a whole lot of sugar and cinnamon makes and oozy, gooey filling. Roll it up and cut into 9 even slices. I usually cut a small piece from each end to even it up first.
Baking these rolls only takes 18 minutes. Seriously, that is just long enough to make your frosting, clean up the flour on the counter and floors, and do the dishes. Before you know it, they are done and ready to eat. Give them a few minutes in the pan. Warm rolls are delicious, but hot rolls that burn your tastebuds off aren’t desired. Trust me on this one 🙂
After a few minutes, remove them from the pan, slather on some chocolate frosting, and go to town on a sweet delicious cinnamon roll. Oh, and don’t forget the extra chocolate chips on top. The more chocolate the better!
