Chocolate Chip Sweet Rolls

April 4, 2022Teresa

Chocolate Chip Sweet Rolls have to be one of my favorite ways to make “cinnamon rolls” or “sweet rolls.” I love chocolate anyway, so this way to use them in a recipe is absolutely delightful. The nice thing about this version is it’s a “no-knead” recipe. The dough is mixed and kneaded in the breadmaker. It’s so much easier that way. After that, roll out the dough, add the filling, allow the rolls to raise, and after baking, slather on the frosting. Lots of frosting! Oh my, these sweet rolls are delectable.

One of the gals at our church asked me to make some cookies for an elder’s retreat they were having. I offered to also make sweet rolls. So I made three variations of cookies ahead of time (Peanut Butter Surprises, Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies, Monster Brownies) and stuck them in the freezer. Then the day beforehand, I made three different batches of sweet rolls. I got started early in the morning and finished in the afternoon. They loved all the food but sweet rolls are always a hit.

My mom made Cinnamon Rolls for us every time she baked home-made bread growing up. She baked up about 12-15 loaves of bread at least once if not twice a week. There were a lot of us and we all loved her home-made bread. She would save out some of the dough and make her cinnamon rolls (which always included raisins).

After I left home and got married, Mom would make homemade bread and cinnamon rolls for us every time we came to visit. The cinnamon rolls were my husband’s favorite. His mom worked when he was growing up so she never had time to make Cinnamon Rolls or bread from scratch. But my mom was a stay-at-home, Mrs. Cleaver type of mom, so we were blessed to eat a lot of homemade goodies growing up. I know that’s where I got my sweet tooth.

When we visited my son, daughter-in-law and our grandkids in early December, my daughter-in-law made homemade rolls and cinnamon rolls in her breadmaker. (Several times)! I loved them and decided it was time to get the recipe and start making them for us. I’ve made several batches since then. My neighbors and our friends love getting these goodies. (And I love making them)!

Chocolate Chip Sweet Rolls are terrific for holiday get togethers, but they’re simply wonderful any time of the year. I like making them on the weekends. But I’ve made them several times for brunch parties. I usually make them a day in advance. They are still great. When we went to my mom’s in the earlier years of our marriage, we would eat her homemade bread or cinnamon rolls for breakfast, lunch or dinner. These luscious sweet rolls are too good to pass up, whether you decide to eat them for breakfast or a midnight snack. 🙂

Grease a 10×15″ glass baking dish really generously with butter. Place sections in three rows of five each. If you don’t have this large of a baking dish, you’ll put 12 rolls in a 9×13″ baking dish. You’ll need enough dishes for about 22-24 rolls, whatever sizes you use.

Place rolls in oven. Turn oven on 350 for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Allow rolls to raise about 15-20 minutes. Keep rolls in oven and turn on oven again for exactly one minute. Turn off oven. Repeat this process for about 1 hour 30 minutes or up to two hours, until the dough raises to double or triple in bulk.

Turn oven on 350. Place timer on 25 minutes. The rolls should be done by that time but check the middle to make sure the rolls are not still gooey. If they are, bake 5 more minutes before removing from oven. (See notes in recipe below).

Recipe Notes

NOTE: I usually warm the half-and-half about one minute 30 seconds in the microwave (at 50% power).

NOTE: To raise the rolls: I turn the oven on 350° for exactly one minute. Turn off heat and slide pan of rolls into the oven (uncovered). After 20 minutes, heat the oven again for one minute. Repeat again in 20 minutes. Keep heating the oven for one minute in 20 minute intervals. If the rolls are raised sufficiently at the hour and a half mark, begin baking. Otherwise, heat for one more minute. Turn off heat and allow rolls to continue raising. At this point, the rolls have been warming in the oven for approximately 1 hour 30 minutes. That is usually sufficient time for the rolls to be raised enough and fill the pan. But sometimes it takes a full 2 hours. Then begin baking.

NOTE: For baking: I keep the rolls in the oven while the temperature raises to 350°. (This allows the rolls to raise a little more). I set a timer for 25 minutes. The rolls are usually done by that time. But check to make sure they are not doughy or too soft in the middle. If they are, continue baking for 5 more minutes. If you put the rolls in a preheated oven, it usually takes about 17-20 minutes for them to bake sufficiently.

NOTE: For best results, do not use any lower percentage of milk than whole milk.

NOTE: For best results, I recommend using Fleischmann’s yeast. Other brands have a tendency to fail more easily.

NOTE: If you use regular sized chocolate chips, you will probably have to use the whole package to get the same coverage.
