Cinnabon Chocobon Recipe

Does this picture make your mouth water? We tried to imitate the very famous cinnamon chocobon roll and it did come out very beautiful. It almost looked like it really came from Cinnabon's kitchen. Unfortunately, the taste tells a different story. It tasted good but not quite the original, of course. Check out the recipe below. It was originally from Food Network's Paula Deen, with a few tweaks here and there. 

Makes 12 - 15


1 small packet instant dry yeast
1 cup milk (heat 1/2 cup to dissolve yeast into)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 egg
3 cups Bake King all purpose flour

1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
3/4 cup Dutche alkalized cocoa powder

Choco Glaze
4 tbsp butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 Dutche alkalized cocoa powder
3 tbsp warm milk


1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Whisk with a fork to dissolve completely. Set aside.
2. Using a large bowl, stir in sugar, melted butter, salt, and egg in the remaining milk.
3. Add 2 cups of flour and mix until smooth.
4. Stir in yeast mixture until dough is easy to handle.
5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 5 to 10 minutes.
6. In a well-greased bowl, cover and let rise until the dough has doubled its size for a couple of hours.
7. Once dough has doubled its size, roll out on a lightly floured surface into a 15 x 9 inch rectangle.
8. Spread melted butter over dough.
9. Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on buttered dough.
10. Mix sugar and cocoa powder and sprinkle over dough. Ensure that dough is well coated before rolling it up beginning at the 15-inch side.
11. Pinch edge together to seal.
12. Cut into your desired slices.
13. Place cinnamon roll slices in a well-greased pan. Set aside until dough has doubled for at least 45 minutes.
14. Bake at a preheated 350°F for 30 minutes or until nicely browned.
15. Meanwhile, mix butter, powdered sugar, cocoa, and vanilla. Stir in 1 tbsp warm milk at a time until the glaze has reached desired consistency. Drizzle on top of cinnamon roll.
