Ingredients

Rolls

  • 4 tablespoons butter melted
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 cup instant chocolate pudding
  • 1/4 cup Hershey’s cocoa powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour bread flour is preferred
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

Filling

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 cup Nutella Hazelnut Spread

Glaze

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter softened, close to melting
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons hot water
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

Rolls

  • Place ingredients as listed in order above into a bread machine. Set for dough cycle. After complete on dough cycle, remove from machine and roll out to a rectangle about 17x10 inches. If you don’t have a bread machine follow the directions below.
  • Combine yeast, water and sugar in a small bowl. Let it sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes until foamy.
  • In a large bowl add all ingredients, beginning with dry ingredients and ending with the wet ingredients. Knead this all together until well combined, I do this for 8-12 minutes. Time to get your workout in.
  • Cover bowl with a dry dish towel and allow to rise until doubled. About 60-90 minutes.
  • Remove dough onto floured surface, punch down to get rid of all the bubbles and roll out to a rectangle about 17x10 inches.

Filling

  • In a small bowl combine the sugar and the cinnamon, set aside. Spread the Nutella on the rolled out dough, make sure to cover the dough entirely. Sprinkled cinnamon and sugar mixture over the Nutella.
  • Roll the dough tightly from long end, pinching edges closed when completely rolled. Slice dough into 12 rolls, about 3/4-1 inch thick slices. Place into greased 9×13 pan, let rise until doubled, I always get impatient at this point and will let it rise for 30 minutes then bake. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes. Prepare glaze while baking if serving immediately.

Glaze

  • Mix butter, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract. Add hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency. Drizzle over sweet rolls after they have cooled for a few minutes.
  • Serve immediately. If serving later, set the rolls aside and glaze when ready to serve. Enjoy!
