1 hour Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

Chocolate cinnamon rolls are a classic recipe that dates back to the 1800s. This dish is simple, but it’s no less delicious! Try these easy chocolate cinnamon roll recipes and enjoy this decadent treat anytime of year.

The “chocolate cinnamon cake” is a delicious dessert that can be made in 1 hour. The recipe calls for 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 sticks of butter, and 4 eggs.

Today, we dispute what we formerly believed to be a universal truth: there is no other meal better than cinnamon buns. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Of course this is true, Sarah,” and I understand. But wait, there’s more….chocolate cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon rolls prepared with CHOCOLATE, for example. This is something I never expected to say… Chocolate rolls, on the other hand, are preferable than cinnamon buns.


And I’m going to persuade you to alter your viewpoint as well.


What are chocolate cinnamon rolls, and how do you make them?

Instead of butter and cinnamon sugar, chocolate cinnamon rolls are filled with chocolate spread, small chocolate chips, and a dusting of cinnamon. That’s pretty much my all-time favorite taste combination. I can’t wait for you folks to create them and test them for yourselves.


With the addition of chocolate, you get all of the gooey pleasure of a cinnamon roll.


This Christmas season, these chocolate-filled buns are ideal. What’s even better? In one hour, they’ll be ready.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN?! Yes! Time limit: 1 hour


How to make fast cinnamon rolls:

I’m sure I’m not the only one who like cinnamon rolls. And I’m sure I’m not alone in despising the time-consuming procedure that goes into making them. A store-bought cinnamon roll (or chocolate roll) is fine, but a freshly baked cinnamon roll (or chocolate roll) is much superior. Traditional cinnamon roll recipes, however, call for many hour-long rises. 

Ain’t anyone got time for that, say Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast and I.


You can have handmade chocolate cinnamon buns on the table in an hour thanks to Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast. In one hour and 35 seconds, you’ll be in your tummy. 


Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast is a quick-rise yeast that makes homemade baking a breeze. There’s no need to activate the yeast in water–just mix it in with your dry ingredients! This dough comes together fast and bakes up into a lovely, soft, delightfully cakey, slightly bready dough that is the ideal fit for a cinnamon chocolate filling with only one thirty minute rise.

Let’s take it one step at a time!

Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

In a large mixing basin, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast.


Step 2: In the middle of the bowl, make a well and pour in the butter, milk, and eggs.


Step three: Mix everything together with your hands until it forms a dough. Add additional 14 cup flour if your dough is too moist.




Step 4: Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until the texture is smooth. Allow the dough to prove for 30 minutes in a loosely covered bowl.


Step 5: Roll out the dough into a 16″ × 24″ rectangle after 30 minutes.


Step 6: Cover the dough with the chocolate spread. Cinnamon and small chocolate chips are sprinkled on top.


Step 7: Roll the dough into a tight log starting at the long end. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 equal pieces.



Step Eight: Bake for 35 minutes at 350°F in a greased 13 x 9′′ pan.


Step 9: Finish with a cream cheese coating and serve.

For the cinnamon chocolate rolls

  • 2 14%–2 34% all-purpose flour
  • 13 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast, 1 packet
  • 34 cup warm milk
  • 3 teaspoons melted butter
  • 2 beaten eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup chocolate ganache
  • 12 cup chocolate chips, mini
  • a pinch of cinnamon

The cream cheese glaze is made using

  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of milk
  • 1 cup sugar (powdered)
  • 1 teaspoon extract de vanille
  • a sprinkle of salt


  1. Melt the butter in a small pot. Whisk the milk into the butter until it is completely combined. Remove from the equation.
  2. In a large mixing basin, combine 2 14 cup flour, sugar, salt, and Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast. In the middle, make a well and pour in the milk and butter. Use a spatula or your hands to fold in the beaten eggs. The dough is going to be moist. If the dough is too moist to work with, add another 14 cup of flour.
  3. Knead for 5 minutes on a floured surface after turning out the dough. The dough should become less sticky as it smooths out. Make a ball out of the dough and set it in an oiled basin. Cover and set aside for 30 minutes to proof in a warm location.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F after 30 minutes. Set aside a 13 x 9 pan that has been greased with butter or cooking spray.
  5. Turn the rising dough out onto a floured surface and spread it out into a 16″ × 24″ rectangle using a rolling pin. The dough should be light and airy. This implies there will be more swirls! Using a spatula, evenly distribute the chocolate spread on the rectangle. Cinnamon and small chocolate chips are sprinkled on top.
  6. Roll the dough into a log starting at one end and squeezing the ends together to keep it together. Cut off the ends of the dough where there isn’t enough filling using floss or a very thin thread. The dough should be divided into 12 equal pieces and then cut into 12 buns. Place the buns in the pan that has been prepared. There will be some gap between the buns as they bake, but they will inflate up!
  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 35 minutes, flipping the pan halfway through. Cover the rolls with tinfoil if they start to brown too much.
  8. Make the cream cheese icing while the cinnamon buns are baking. Combine the powdered sugar, cream, cream cheese, vanilla, and salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil after whisking together until no clumps remain. Remove the pan from the heat and put it aside.
  9. Serve the glaze over the heated cinnamon buns while they’re still warm!

Chocolate cinnamon buns, fast cinnamon rolls are two terms that come to mind while thinking of this recipe.


  1. We used Hershey’s Chocolate Spread, but Nutella or a similar spread would also work!
