Easy Mint Chip Sweet Rolls

Today is National Chocolate Mint Day. We’re celebrating with some Easy Mint Chip Sweet Rolls. In my house we can never let this day pass without a celebration because my daughter loves chocolate and mint.

Regardless of the day, you need these in your life. Breakfast or dessert? You choose.

Easy Mint Chip Sweet Rolls - just a few ingredients and less than 20 minutes to have mint chip sweet rolls for breakfast!

This is, for some reason, a really hard post for me to write. I had all these grand ideas and then I sat down and just cried instead.

Today? Today Jordan, my baby, my only, turns 10. Double digits. *sobbing*

I really can’t even fathom that she’s a ten year old. That it was 10 years ago we went through all we did and got our little superstar. Time flies when you’re having fun, right? 😉

So I’d like to wish Jordan a very happy fantabulous bling a ding ding birthday today. Would you join me in wishing her that?

My little girl has changed a lot over the last year. She’s lost a lot of that “baby” look and grown taller. She wears women sized shoes. She’s grown into a love of reading and she’s discovered her love of jazz dancing and theatre. I really am loving the big girl she’s becoming. And I’m excited (and freaked out) about what the next couple of years bring.

There are a few things about Jordan that have not changed and I hope they never will. One, she’s fiercely loving and loyal. She can’t ever wait to spend time with her grandparents. Her sense of style only gets more refined as she ages, as does her sense of self. She’s her own person and content with who she is. I thank goodness she got all that from my husband!

Oh, and the other thing that hasn’t changed about her? Her love of chocolate and mint. I don’t think that will ever change. Secretly? I’m glad, because I love it too.

These Easy Mint Chip Sweet Rolls are the first in a series of mint posts I have for you over the next few weeks. The fact that Jordan’s birthday falls on Chocolate Mint Day and is only a few weeks from St. Patrick’s Day (the day of all things green and mint) means that I can go wild on recipes this time of year.

It’s one of my favorite baking times of year, seriously. #MintForever

For today: Easy Chocolate Mint Sweet Rolls. They’re a sweet roll that you can have on your breakfast (or dessert) table in under 30 minutes. They start with one of my favorite things: Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.

I’ve made easy sweet rolls a few times before using crescent rolls. I love using this time saver because well, it’s a time saver. And if I’m looking for a quick breakfast or snack or dessert, I’ll take the extra minutes where I can get them.

The Crescent Rolls are flattened and pinched together, then filled with a little butter and granulated sugar and a hefty dose of mint chip baking pieces. They’re the Andes Mints Baking Chips that come in the baking aisle. They’re near the chocolate chips and it’s a whole bag full of chopped up Andes Mints. I can find them all year long at Target and Walmart, as well as some grocery stores.

If you can’t find the baking chips, look in the candy aisle for the actual Andes Mints, and chop them up. Or, some grocery stores carry Guittard Green Mint Baking Chips. Those would work as well.

Once you roll and bake the sweet rolls you top them (optionally) with some melted mint chip pieces or some melted chocolate chips – you choose! You can also skip the drizzle and enjoy them plain. I’d probably do that if I was serving them for breakfast.

Unless it was a special occasion, like, you know, a 10th birthday.

Happy, happy birthday Jordan. I love you so much I can’t stand it. Also? I can’t wait for you to open your present this morning.

And to everyone else, I apologize for the photo deluge on instagram. Isn’t it appropriate that her birthday falls on #throwbackthursday? I plan to #tbt. A lot. 🙂

  1. Those look absolutely delicious.  Mint and chocolate is maybe the best combo ever.  Why didn’t I know there was a chocolate mint day?  I’ve been missing out on having an excuse to make and eat chocolate mint things all these years!  I was feeling the same thing last week when my oldest turned 9 and she just all of a sudden looked SO old!  Time goes too fast.

  2. Dorothy, I love that you baked these for your daughter . . happy birthday Jordan! Wow, 10 years old. .  that’s so great!!! hang in there, momma. .  sounds like you are already doing an awesome job (she sounds amazing!) and eat lots of sweet rolls together! 🙂 TGIF!

  3. Mint chip ROCKS. Ice cream, in particular has been my fav ever since I was a wee lad. This recipe rocks and I cannot wait to try it out! PINNED!

  4. I LOVE all things mint chocolate! These sound awesome. And Happy Birthday to Jordan! Her room makeover looks like a girl’s dream come true.

  5. Awe what a super fun way to celebrate a birthday!  Happy Bday Jordan!   And I totally know what you mean about crying when the baby hits double digits.  All three of mine are there and I’m so not happy about it.  My baby will be 12 and in jr. high next year…how is that even possible?!?!?!?

  6. Hope Jordan had an amazing birthday, filled with smiles and treats!  My son will turn 10 in June – I can hardly believe it so I know how you feel!  What a delicious treat this must have been for the birthday girl!  I think my son would be thrilled if he got this – we are all huge mint chocolate fans here.  

  7. Happy Happy Birthday Jordan!!  I am expecting our first in 2 weeks. I am already crying about the 1st, 2nd, and 10th birthday.
