    • ½ cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Lightly grease an 8-inch cake pan with non-stick spray; set aside.
  • Separate dough into 8 rolls and unroll.
  • Brush each piece of dough with melted butter.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cinnamon and sugar.
  • Evenly divide and sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon-sugar over each roll.
  • Evenly divide chocolate chips and spread over cinnamon-sugar.
  • Carefully roll up each dough, pinching seams together.

  • Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until tops are golden brown.
  • While rolls are cooking, make the icing.
  • Melt the Tablespoon of butter in the microwave.
  • In you mixing bowl, mix together the butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar.
  • Add in the whipping cream (or milk), little by little until you reach desired consistency.  I like a thick, spreadable icing, so I tend to use closer to 4 Tablespoons of the cream.  The more cream you add, the thinner icing you will have. If you get it too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  • The nice thing about icing is that it is very forgiving. You can add a little of this or a little of that and make a super yummy icing!
