All opinions are mine alone. #DelightfulMoments #CollectiveBiasMaking a sweet or cinnamon roll is something that happens every holiday. It has become quite the tradition and I love to make a variation for all of our friends and family. One of my favorite, sweet flavors is this Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Rolls batch!
In college I studied abroad in Italy and absorbed an obsession with chocolate hazelnut! It was fairly common that you would find us studying with an open jar of the spread, dunking fruit and breadsticks into the tub. They love their chocolate and hazelnut in Italy, and you can find the combination in many foods like gelato, candy, and more. Ever since I returned, I have kept this love of chocolate and hazelnut and try to use it whenever I can. Making a roll featuring these flavors was an obvious choice!
I had some International Delight® Chocolate Hazelnut Creamer in the house and thought it would be a perfect addition to inserting more flavor in the rolls! I also have a International Delight® Peppermint Mocha Creamer which I am loving for the holidays! We love to have these creamers on hand as they are a fantastic addition to our morning coffee. The creamers are perfect because we can have different flavors available for all of our friends and family over the holidays so that everyone gets their perfect cup of coffee. They are also fun to get creative with in your favorite recipes!
They are incredibly easy to find in the refrigerated section of your local Wal-Mart. International Delight® is also doing an in-store demo at select stores through Thanksgiving weekend for some more inspiration.
To make the Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Rolls, get the dough mixed, kneaded, and let it rise. Then it is time to assemble!
Roll out the dough until it is approximately 15 x 9 inches. Make your filling by mixing the cream cheese and instant coffee. Stir to combine. Spread it out over the dough. Then take the chocolate hazelnut spread and spread it across the cream cheese mixture. You can use more to taste if you wish. Sprinkle the hazelnuts and chocolate chips on top.
Then roll up the dough from the longer edge to make a long log. Cut it in half, then each piece in half again, so you have four log pieces. Each piece can then be cut into three rolls, for a total of twelve. Line your baking dish with 1 Tbsp melted butter and sprinkle with some sugar. Then line up your rolls, 3×4. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rise until doubled in size, approximately 45 minutes. This is the point where you can stop and leave them overnight for a fast breakfast! Just pop them in the refrigerator after the rolls have risen the second time.
After the Chocolate Hazelnut Coffee Rolls are done, top them with the glaze, some additional hazelnuts, chocolate chips, and caramel sauce as desired. Serve with some coffee, including the Chocolate Hazelnut Creamer, and enjoy!
