READY IN: 2hrs 55mins
YIELD: 14 rolls




  • Melt the water and the butter together. set aside and add vanilla.
  • With the stand mixer using the dough hook or in a bread machine add the water and butter mixture, add the pudding.
  • next add the warm buttermilk, egg, sugar, salt, flour and yeast then mix the ingredients well with the stand mixer, or the dough setting on the bread machine.
  • when the dough is ready, kneed the dough a little bit until pliable. Roll the dough onto a lightly floured surface.
  • spread the soft butter around the entire dough. next spread the Nutella just as you did the with the butter.
  • mix the brown sugar and the cinnamon together. if you are adding nuts mix those in as well.
  • roll up the dough, beginning with the longest side. Slice as many rolls that you can. I usually yield approximately 14.
  • place on a buttery pan, then i usually cover them them with a cloth or saran wrap and then set aside to rise twice the original size. Usually takes about an hour. Humidity will make a difference in this process.
  • preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • after the rolls have risen bake them for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • in a bowl add cream cheese, butter, and 3 tbls. chai powder (I use Caffe D'Vita Enchanted Chai powder) together and mix well.
  • add vanilla and gradually add the powder sugar.
  • here add the sugar and milk as you obtain the consistency that you want.
  • remove the rolls out of the oven and glaze the rolls with the frosting and finish with chocolate of you prefer.
