I adapted this recipe for the winter holidays and it's been successful around here. I always buy already crushed peppermint candy at the start of every holiday season. It's just so handy to have ready and can be sprinkled on so many things to add a festive (and tasty) touch.

How to Make Chocolate Peppermint Cinnamon Rolls


  • 1ROLLS:
  • 2In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup warm water. Add the butter, sugar, salt and remaining water. Stir in 2-1/2 cups flour and cocoa. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 3Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 4Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle; brush with melted butter. Combine the sugar, cinnamon, chocolate chips and crushed candy; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges
  • 5Roll up each jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal. Cut each into 10 slices. Place cut side down in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 6Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 7Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough milk to reach desired consistency. Spread over rolls while slightly warm; sprinkle with additional crushed candy bits.
