2 things I love, homemade cinnamon rolls and a clean kitchen. That being said, I don’t typically make them as they can be somewhat of a mess lol. So if I’m going to clean up, it’s going to be for a good flavor concept and these were a total win..like, I think they are my number 1 favorite hands down! Worth every piece of dough that stuck to my kitchen counters lol
So let’s talk about these cinnamon rolls!
I’ll be honest, I’m not the best at rolling them. I feel like I can’t get the shape right, the butter can melt making it harder to slice and the list goes on. Full transparency though, it’s not about perfection. I think that’s where many get overwhelmed and pass on making them. I promise you, perfection is overrated. As long as you impart the right flavors aka this amazing filling, you’re good! Bonus, my personal favorite slicing hack is to just use a pizza slicer. The cuts are more uniform, you don’t have to worry about rolling, using a knife etc. It’s just too easy, you have to try it.
Let’s talk espresso and chocolate!
If you know anything about Chocolate, coffee enhances it’s flavor. If you’re a lover of all things coffee, then this is perhaps your favorite flavor combo. The combination of chocolate and espresso, with the notes of cinnamon and that espresso icing really put it over the top. If you’re leaning towards traditional icing for this recipe, don’t, it truly makes the rolls so much more impactful.
What’s fab about this recipe? Holy, moly. Everything. These are made in just an hour, light, fluffy, have minimal proofing time that’s cut in half, require no eggs, are packed with flavor, have notes of chocolate, espresso, salt, cinnamon, the frosting is even espresso based, vegan, you can seamlessly cut these with just a pizza cutter and forget the rolling, these are perfect for any season, have a crispy top but a buttery soft inside, and are just amazing with a cup of coffee!
If you love all things coffee or just crave a seamless cinnamon roll, you have to try these new vegan Chocolate Espresso Cinnamon Rolls!
