      This was the first time I've ever made cinnamon rolls and they turned out pretty good. For the filling, I used chopped almonds and pecans and added about a tablespoon of cocoa to the sugar, cinnamon mixture. For the frosting, I mixed 3 oz cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 Tbls orange juice and 1/2 a cup of mini-chocolate chips. What a hit! It did take a little longer, the first rising took about 2 hours, but that might have been the yeast, or it may have been too cool.

      These were nice. I couldn't figure out how much sugar to combine with the cinnamon for the fililng and guessed. I wish I had increased the cinnamon for more of a Mexican hot cocoa flavor. Also, since I didn't know how sweet it'd be and needed something rich, I threw in about 1/4 c chocolate chips to the filling- that was great! I liked the bread-type texture of the roll. I will try it again, this time increasing the filling.
