  • For the dough:
  • 1 cup milk warmed to the touch, but not hot
  • 5 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 package 2½ teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons chocolate malted powder
  • coconut oil spray
  • For the filling:
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened
  • ½ cup crushed peppermint candy
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • For the icing:
  • cups confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate malted powder
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ cup crushed peppermint candy


  • To make the dough:
  • Add the warm milk, melted butter and granulated sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer.
  • Add the yeast to the milk and butter mixture and stir well to combine.
  • Allow the mixture to sit and get foamy (approximately 10 minutes).
  • Stir the flour, salt, egg, cocoa powder, and chocolate malt powder to the bowl and stir slight to combine.
  • Switch to the dough hook for the stand mixer and thoroughly knead the dough until it comes away from the sides of the bowl, and forms a soft ball (at least 7 minutes).
  • Transfer the dough to an bowl that has been sprayed with coconut oil and cover the bowl with plastic wrap.
  • Allow the dough to rise until doubled in bulk in a warm, draft free place (approximately 90 minutes).
  • Turn the dough out and pat (or roll) the dough into an approximate 12" x 17" rectangle
  • For the filling:
  • Spread the softened butter evenly over the entire surface of the dough.
  • Top the dough with ½ cup of the crushed peppermint, and ½ cup of the chocolate chips.
  • Roll the dough, lengthwise to form a cylinder.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut the cylinder into even circles (12-15)
  • Place the rolls into a 9" x 13" baking dish that has been sprayed with coconut oil spray.
  • Place the rolls in a warm, draft free place to rise until doubled in volume (approximately 90 minutes).
  • Once doubled, preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake the rolls for 30-35 minutes. Until a toothpick inserted into the center of the dough comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for at least 30 minutes.
  • While the sweet rolls are cooling, prepare the icing.
  • For the icing:
  • Add all the icing ingredients into a medium bowl, and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Spread the icing liberally over each sweet roll and sprinkle the top of each roll with the remaining ½ cup of the crushed peppermint candy.

And now, back to the #Choctoberfest celebration and all the fabulous food bloggers and their deliciously chocolaty recipes. By clicking on the photos below, you’ll be taken directly to their recipes. I sure do hope you’re hungry!!

But wait, before you go I’d like a chance to show you these elegant frosted Winter in the Woods wine glasses that I painted two years ago for a customer/friend who wanted them to coordinate with her holiday china collection. After receiving her glasses she was generous enough to share a photo with me of her place setting. Needless to say, I was thrilled to see her finished table setting.

If there is ever anything I can paint for you, from glassware items to fabrics, please don’t hesitate to contact me or visit one of my shops: Etsy and Wazala. I always welcome custom orders, and will happily paint and design from any photo (like the glasses show above), idea or description you send my way. I lovingly hand paint each item I ship with great attention to detail. Each glass will come in its own gift box, making them perfect for gift giving.
