CHOCOLATE COCONUT BUN ROLLS
This is a new twist to cinnamon bun rolls. I decided to do something different from the classic cinnamon rolls and it turned out to be very palatable. Cooking is all about confidence, having fun and creativity; to cap it all, it brings the family together and keeps us happy. This is what I enjoy and look forward to when cooking.
To serve this, I drizzled warm maple syrup on top of it, hmm… to bring it up to a climax.
Folks, let’s get cooking!
4 cups of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tsp of salt
2 1/4 tsp of instant dry yeast
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 stick of butter
1 tsp of vanilla
FOR THE FILLING
3-4 tbs of coconut butter
3/4 cup of milk chocolate chips (or any type of milk chocolate you have available)
Attach the dough hook to the mixer
In the mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, salt, yeast and stir it ( remember to put the salt on the side of the bowl, so that it doesn’t get to the yeast because it deactivates the yeast)
Warm the milk with the butter in the microwave for 1 minute
Add the warm mixture to the dry ingredients
Add the eggs and vanilla
Turn on the mixer and mix for about 10 minutes or until the mixture is well combined stretchy and smooth
Let it rest for 10 minutes
Roll out the dough to a rectangular shape and at about 1/2 inch thickness
Mix all the filling ingredients except the chocolate
Smear the filling mixture on the rolled out dough
Sprinkle the chocolate chips
Roll the dough into a log
With a sharp knife cut the dough width wise
Oil the baking dish or casserole dish and place the rolls about 1 1/2 inches apart
Leave it in a warm place to rise (i usually put mine in a warm oven to make it faster)
Bake in 375 degrees oven for 14 minutes
Serve with warm maple syrup or serve as it is.
