WOW! The addition of the coffee and white chocolate really takes the icing on these cinnamon rolls to a new level. DH inhaled them : ) This recipe makes ordinary store-bought cinnamon rolls a dish that would be great for a Company brunch. Won't ever make them the regular way again : ) Made for PRMR, April, 2014.
