Roll Directions:

1. In a small bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon sugar and yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy (about 10 minutes). Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Mix in 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and salt; stir until melted. Let cool until lukewarm.

2. In a large bowl, combine the yeast mixture, milk mixture, eggs and 1 1/2 cup flour; stir well to combine. Stir in the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

3. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

4. While dough is rising, melt 3/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in 3/4 cup brown sugar, whisking until smooth, add orange zest. Pour into greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Sprinkle bottom of pan with 1/2 cup cranberries; set aside. Melt remaining butter; set aside. Combine remaining 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup cranberries, and Cocoa; set aside.

5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, roll into an 18x14 inch rectangle. Brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter, leaving 1/2 inch border uncovered; sprinkle with brown sugar and Cocoa mixture. Starting at long side, tightly roll up, pinching seam to seal. Brush with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. With serrated knife, cut into 15 pieces; place cut side down, in prepared pan. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in volume. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).

6. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool in pan for 3 minutes, then invert onto serving platter. Scrape remaining filling from the pan onto the rolls.

Chocolate Glaze Directions:

1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat (about 2 minutes).

2. Stir in cocoa powder and milk. Cook the glaze, stirring, until it thickens and comes to a boil (about 2 minutes).

3. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 cups of confectioners' sugar, adding more if needed to make the mixture smooth and a little thicker than pancake syrup; don't allow glaze get too thick.

4. Drizzle the warm glaze over room-temperature rolls. Finish with sprinkling Toasted Brownie Brittle® Crush and let sit until the glaze hardens, about 30 minutes.

NOTE: Garnish the Breakfast Rolls with Drizzled Chocolate Glaze and ‘Brownie Brittle® Crush'
