Expert Tips

Instead of chocolate eggs use chocolate chips or chocolate candies.

When I have ready-to-bake bread dough in the fridge I feel incredibly happy. It's so great to put fresh warm bread on the table at any time of day and with just a few changes I can add variety and adapt the recipe for different festivities throughout the year. For example, for a simple Easter bread that is still incredibly delicious, I decided to prepare cinnamon rolls with orange glaze stuffed with chocolate eggs. Bread with chocolate is always delicious and it makes me want to prepare an extra special, luxurious breakfast. The best part of this recipe is that if you bake them separately they are ready in just 11 to 12 minutes. Can you imagine? It's like having a bakery in your home; in the blink of an eye you'll have delicious fresh bread ready for your whole family! I recommend leaving the glaze for the last minute and always eat the pastries fresh out of the oven. After all, there's really nothing better than that, plus a cup of coffee.

You can also omit the chocolate and use 1 tablespoon of sliced almond before rolling up each roll.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • 2 Open the package of cinnamon rolls and separate the rolls. Unroll and fit 3 or 4 eggs in each. Roll up again and place them in a baking dish lined with parchment paper. Bake 11-12 minutes or until they're golden brown and have expanded.
  • 3 In the meantime, heat the glaze that comes with the cinnamon roll a bit in the microwave for 15 seconds.
  • 4 Remove from the oven and pour on the glaze.
  • 5 Serve immediately.
