Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

This sweet roll is filled with peanut butter and chocolate chips. A delicious way to start your morning!

Holidays tend to revolve around food at my house!  We typically sleep in and then eat a leisurely breakfast. Then we move on to our morning activities: watching the parade on Thanksgiving or opening gifts on Christmas. We'll often munch on some appetizers before having a late lunch. Dinner is often leftovers from lunch or some more appetizers or even another slice of dessert!

One of my favorite breakfast foods is cinnamon rolls.  This isn't your traditional cinnamon roll though!  Oh no, this one is stuffed with peanut butter and chocolate chips!  I've made other stuffed cinnamon rolls before, like cookie dough, funfetti, and peach. This peanut butter and chocolate chip roll definitely ranks up there as one of my favorites!

P.S.  There is not any cinnamon in the roll, so the title is a bit misleading, but regardless of the filling, I still call these cinnamon rolls! :)

Peanut Butter Cinnamon Rolls

Makes 9 rolls

Ingredients:
3/4 cup milk
2-1/4 teaspoons yeast
1/3 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3 cups flour

2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chocolate chips

1.  Measure milk into a glass measuring cup and microwave for about 30 seconds, until the milk is about 120 degrees.

2.  Add the yeast and sugar to the milk and allow it to sit for 5 minutes, until the mixture becomes frothy.

3.  In the bowl of your stand mixer using the paddle attachment, combine the butter, salt, and egg.

4.  Add the milk mixture and stir.

5.  Switch to the dough hook and add the flour to the mixing bowl.  Mix on low speed until the dough forms a ball.

6.  Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, about 1-1/2 hours.

7.  While the dough is rising, stir together the peanut butter and brown sugar.

8.  Once the dough has risen, turn it out onto a floured surface.  Roll it into a rectangle, about 12" by 9".

9.  Spread the peanut butter mixture over the dough.  It might be a little difficult to spread, just do the best you can!

10.  Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the peanut butter mixture.

11.  Roll the dough up tightly from the long end.  Slice into 9 equal slices.  I find it's easiest to use dental floss to cut the dough!

12.  Place the cinnamon rolls in a greased 9" pan.

13.  Allow the rolls to rise for 1 hour, until the rolls are expanded in the pan.**

14.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.

**If desired, you can stop at this point and refrigerate the rolls overnight.  Cover tightly with plastic wrap and place in the fridge.  When you're ready to bake them, allow the rolls to come to room temperature while the oven is preheating.  Then bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.
