Jordan is totally in a breakfast rut. Cereal, every day. Sometimes she asks, “Have you made anything??” with hopeful eyes and when I say no I can see her dashed hopes and she just says “Alriiiiight. I guess I’ll have Cheerios. Again.”

And then I feel like a horrible mother and I pick up a can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and some chocolate spread and make her the most fabulous breakfast ever.

Am I the only on that does that? No? Good.

You’re welcome.

Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread

Besides my inability to make breakfast food at breakfast time (hello, not a morning person), I have another really embarrassing thing to admit. Ready for a good laugh?

Until recently I did not know that k-cups weren’t recyclable. *hangs head in shame*

In my defense, we don’t have to recycle in my city. We throw everything in huge garbage cans and they recycle for us. And then I realized that all those k-cups are just trash floating out in the sea forming trash island. And I kind of felt dirty for using my machine after that. Knowing all those k-cups were trash made me aware of every cup of coffee I made. Which is why I was so excited that, shortly after my lightbulb moment, Hamilton Beach emailed me about reviewing their newest coffee maker, the 2-Way FlexBrew Coffeemaker. It brews a pot of coffee AND can brew a single cup…from grounds OR a k-cup.

Pretty much it does everything but drink your coffee for you.

I’ve been using this coffee maker for about 2 weeks full-time and my other k-cup only machine is now in the garage for a rainy day. I’m back to saving the planet and using coffee grounds, which makes me feel good. Also, the two complaints I always had when using k-cups were that the coffee wasn’t strong enough (I like it STRONG) and that I prefer to drink bowls of coffee. That can happen with this machine wether I make the pot or brew a single cup.

And, before you mention that fill-your-own k-cup thing you can buy, this machine is not that. That thing made horrible coffee. This one comes with a mini gold re-usable filter perfect for a single cup. And it’s drinkable!

I’m not one for talking about products I don’t love, so know that my sharing this coffee maker – even as a review – carries some weight. I really do love it! You can find it online and in Walmart, if you’re interested.

Back To This Delicious Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread

Now, back to the Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread. OMG.

This really is the easiest Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Pull Apart Bread recipe you’ll ever make. Well, maybe aside from this one. Nope, this one is easier.

Step one: slice cinnamon rolls lengthwise into three pieces. It’s a messy step, but your hands get covered in cinnamon paste. I mean, you could wash them…or lick them clean.

Step two: spread some sort of chocolate spread all over each slice and sandwich them all together. Bake. Eat. Repeat.

I used a chocolate peanut butter spread for my chocolate centers. You could also use Nutella or the Hershey equivalent, or Biscoff/Cookie Butter, or Peanut Butter. OR ALL OF THEM.

I’m doing the latter. Since I’ll be making this a trilionty more times. Jordan will be happy.

Total Time 40 minutes
Yield 8 servings
Serving Size 1 slice


  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls not flakey
  • Chocolate spread such as Nutella, Chocolate Peanut Butter, or any similar product


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with cooking spray (for best removal results use the spray with flour in it).
  • Unroll the tube of Cinnamon Rolls carefully. If they split, just press them back together. Separate the rolls. Slice each into three thin slices, lengthwise (like you'd cut a sandwich roll). This is a messy step!
  • Sandwich the slices together with chocolate spread, forming a loaf. Do not spread any chocolate on the outside of the two ends. Place the loaf in the pan. Bake for 24-28 minutes until golden brown. Place the frosting cup that comes with the rolls on the stove while the loaf is baking to melt it, then pour it over the warm bread. Serve warm.
