After a crazy week last week, we had an even crazier Saturday. Two soccer games, one home and one away, lots of shopping, house cleaning, and a checklist a mile long.  I rolled into bed just happy to be able to shut my eyes.

Sunday morning dawned and our plans to go to Apple Hill for the day seemed a bit daunting.  All I wanted to do was be lazy and rest – for once! I got up to make the boys some breakfast and was feeling generally uninspired. I was going to suggest cereal when I remembered we had a box of the new Pillsbury Cinnabon Bakery Inspired Cinnamon Rolls – score!

Because the boys weren’t quite ready for breakfast I decided to make this meal one of pure indulgence.  And what goes better with ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls than chocolate milk?

I decided to get a little creative and pulled out the slow cooker.  I wanted some chocolate milk that would go perfectly with the cinnamon rolls and the thought of that thick, rich frosting had me thinking white – white chocolate! White chocolate with spice – cinnamon, of course, and nutmeg and cardamom…. sooo good!

Because the theme of the morning was most definitely indulgence, I made the chocolate milk with the marshmallows already inside.  A tub of marshmallow creme makes this drink so smooth and creamy and utterly amazing! Totally worthy of our indulgent breakfast.

The cinnamon rolls baked up beautifully while the chocolate slowly melted in the slow cooker and by the time everyone was ready to eat, I had the most amazing breakfast ready to go with hardly any effort – exactly what this mama needed.  Jumbo cinnamon rolls topped with the most amazing cinnamon glaze and frosted with extra rich, thick frosting.  I thought the boys would maybe split one of these but no, they devoured one a piece in just minutes.

And that spiced hot white chocolate? Glorious! The perfect match for these amazing cinnamon rolls!

  6. Waking up to a sweet treat like this sounds AWESOME! It sounds like you’ve been crazy busy too lately, eh? Slow cooking is totally the way to go. Go you, and a supermom of the year award for you for making this! All I ever got for breakfast on those school mornings was a badly-buttered piece of too-crisp toast, hehe (just kidding, it was all right–but still! This white hot chocolate!)

  10. Eeks, your week definitely sounded full – hope this week is less hectic and more manageable :) Holy cow, this looks amazing!!! Both the kiddies got sick last week so I definitely need a treat like this. I am a sucker for white chocolate anything and the fall spices sound perfect!

  11. I don’t have marshmallow creme where I live, do you think I could just pop some marshmallows in there and get the same effect?? Any suggestions would be awesome – I’m going to make this asap!

  12. Hey girl!! Just wanted to come back and tell you I tried these tonight (Its freaking cold in Upstate NY) and it’s delicious!! Just what our night needed. Thank you for a great recipe!!

  13. Hi! This sounds amazing! Can you tell me how many people your recipe will serve?? Thanks!

  14. Susan Spears says:

    I am curious if you have had any leftover and reheated it. I would like to make this and keep it in the refrigerator. What do you think?

  15. At first taste this stuff is amazing but, after a few sips it’s more like drinking a vanilla sugar syrup. The cardamom and vanilla beans cost way to much where I live too. It’s $20 just for those two ingredients. If I made this again I would omit the marshmallow creme and use all milk instead of half and half.

    • It’s definitely a decadent treat Kathy! The cardamom could definitely be omitted and the vanilla bean could be replaced with vanilla extract. Don’t break the bank just for some hot chocolate :) Thank you!

    • I have to say, it tasted too sweet for me liking..probably would omit the marshmallow creme as well or the condensed milk..its just too much

  16. This looks like my kind of hot chocolate! I love white chocolate! We featured this recipe in our Featured Friday blog post for Cinnamon and Spice Desserts! I hope you can visit

  17. I made this and really enjoyed it, but I couldn’t drink more than half a cup because of how sweet it was. Any suggestions on how to cut out some of the sugar? Could I use unsweetened condensed milk? Or maybe skip the condensed milk all together? I love the taste the spices give it, so i’m hoping I can tweek it a bit to make it perfect for my husband and I.

  18. Wow, this looks incredible! Could you tell me how many people this recipe serves?? I can’t wait to try it out!!!
