The Thanksgiving Collection
How you doin’? Warm cinnamon rolls are the perfect breakfast food, evening dessert and the best thing ever about the county fair. Why else does anyone bother to go to the fair if not for the cinnamon rolls? I can live for weeks on the aroma alone, but thankfully I don’t have to.
My Chocolate-Caramel Cinnamon Rolls recipe is off the hook in decadence and perfect for your Thanksgiving weekend brunches. Just when you thought nothing could beat an ordinary cinnamon roll, I go and add cocoa and chocolate. This recipe will guide your taste buds to a higher level of Zen—or something like the best kind of guilty pleasures.
The first cinnamon rolls were baked in Sweden where October 4th is known as National Cinnamon Roll Day (we celebrate it here on the same date). In Sweden cinnamon rolls are social institutions that should never be missed, according to www.communityofsweden.com . They are commonly enjoyed during FIKA, a get-together with family and friends.
