 Skill Level: Intermediate

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 12 Servings

All you will need is:

For the Dough:

1 teaspoon Salt

1 tablespoon Sugar

4 teaspoons Baking Powder 

1 pint Heavy Whipping Cream 

Chocolate Cinnamon Filling:

4 tablespoons Butter 

½ cup Brown Sugar 

1-½ tablespoon Cinnamon 

½ cup Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Chips 

For the Chocolate Glaze:

1-¼ cups Powdered Sugar 

1 tablespoon Hershey’s Cocoa Powder 

½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract 

2 tablespoon Milk 

All you need to do is:

Mix in the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl until evenly combined.

Now combine the heavy whipping cream with the dry mix to form a dough.

Dust a clean work surface with flour and turn the dough out onto the surface. 

Now slightly work the dough on the dusted station to form a smooth and cohesive dough (do not knead the dough).

To make the chocolate cinnamon filling, melt the butter in a separate bowl and stir in the brown sugar and the cinnamon in it.

Spread the cinnamon sugar mixture over the surface of the rolled dough, from edge to edge. 

Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Now roll the dough up from one side to another to have an approx. 16” long roll.

Use a knife or clan dental floss to cut out the roll into 12 equal buns (size may vary depending on how big you want your buns to be).

Grease a casserole dish and place the buns in it (slightly close together). 

Bake the buns for 20-25 minutes or until they are golden brown on top.

Allow the buns to cool. Prepare the glaze while the buns are cooling. 

Place the powdered sugar in a bowl and add the cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and milk. 

Stir the ingredients until they form a thick, chocolaty glaze. 

Once the buns are mostly cooled, drizzle the glaze over top and enjoy.
