Chocolate Chip Brown Sugar Rolls

Bad days often equal the best ideas.
When I am having a not-so-awesome day I tend to escape into food fantasy. My happy place is a fully loaded kitchen with an unlimited supply of butter, bacon, and chocolate – and an open bar. Anyway, on one of my recent no-so-awesome days I retreated to my inner test-kitchen and decided I wanted to combine cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies, with a little cream cheese tossed in for good measure. I can’t tell you how comforting the thought was, so when I got home I went to my real-life test-kitchen (aka, Shenanigans Central) and made my happy thought a very happy reality.
These are an adaptation of my Quick Sour Cream Cinnamon Rolls. I used the dough as inspiration for these rolls but traded cream cheese for sour cream giving them a tangy bite, but with a silkier, richer flavor. The filling is based on the flavors found in a chocolate chip cookie – butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and of course chocolate. Here I used bittersweet chips for their robust flavor. Finally, I drizzled over a little vanilla bean glaze to make the rolls pretty, and to add just a little more sweetness. These are wonderful warm, but they hold up well the second day. Some of my taste-testers said they liked them better the second day, so go figure. You can make these up the night before you want to bake them , just cover with plastic and stash in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
