White Chocolate & Craisin Cinnamon Rolls

White chocolate and craisins has to be one of my favorite flavor combinations. I love any opportunity to combine the two because they are truly a match made in heaven.

These rolls come together quickly with the help of frozen white dough. You could always make your own dough, but I would suggest not using a sweet dough as you would for regular cinnamon rolls. I think the plain white dough worked perfectly because the white chocolate is sweet enough on its own.


White Chocolate & Craisin Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe from Nestle

2 loaves (1 lb each) frozen white dough, thawed
2 TBSP butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 TBSP cinnamon
2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup craisins
1 cup powdered sugar
3 TBSP milk

Grease two 9" round pans.

Roll 1 bread loaf into 16x10 inch rectangle. Spread 1 TBSP butter on dough. Combine cinnamon and sugar in small bowl; sprinkle 2 TBSP on dough leaving 1/2" border on sides. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup craisins, firmly pressing into dough.

Roll up dough tightly starting at short end. Seal edges with water. Cut into 6 slices; place cut side up into pan. Repeat with other loaf.

Cover and let rolls rise until they almost fill pans, about 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 15 minutes in pans on wire racks.

Melt remaining 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Stir in powdered sugar and milk to make a stiff glaze. Drizzle over cinnamon rolls.

Cristine-those rolls look SO good. I love making bread but I also like a quick and easy cinnamon roll recipe for those days I don't have time to make the dough. Cranberries and white chocolate? Can't beat that combo!
