This Mocha Glaze is the perfect cinnamon roll frosting recipe. It is super easy to make using Millstone coffee made in my Keurig!
I’ve made no secret of my love for coffee. It is one of my daily pleasures! So I was delighted when Millstone offered to send me a Millstone Bean To Cup Tasting Kit complete with a Keurig and Millstone K-Cups! Test delicious coffee at home in my yoga pants? Oh yeah! That is perfect for me!
I was even more excited when they said I could give an additional kit to one of my followers! Are you a fellow coffee lover? You can enter to win a Millstone Bean To Cup Tasting Kit that includes all of the items in the photo collage above! But first, let me tell you about my experience with Millstone coffee.
I visited Millstone.com and check out the beautiful, new, virtual Millstone Bean Journey! The journey starts with how the beans are grown in Arabica, handpicked, washed and dried.
As I scrolled down the virtual through the virtual journey, I learned how the beans are roasted and blended. I learned that Millstone Master Roasters spend 2- 4 years training their palates to detect the key attributes that make each cup of Millstone Coffee taste exceptional! They look at the acidity, body, aroma, flavor and balance! Want to learn more? Check out the Millstone Bean Journey!
After all that reading, I was ready for some sampling! The Foglifter is a medium roast that has a bright, spicy aroma with a complex flavor, delicate notes and a rich, full body. This is a perfect coffee for drinking after dinner with a chocolate dessert!
I also sampled Millstone Breakfast Blend and Hazelnut Cream. The Breakfast Blend is a light roast. It has delicate top notes and a bright floral, almost tea-like finish. We found that it was a perfect way to start the day!
But my favorite coffee was the Hazelnut Cream! It is a deliciously flavored coffee that is such a treat to drink. I received my tasting kit on a Monday and by Friday we only had a couple hazelnut K-Cups left from the box!
I am excited to finally have a Keurig and I love that I can make Millstone coffee in it. I have been loving waking up in the morning, popping a K-Cup in my Keurig and sitting down to start the day with a cup of delicious, smooth Millstone coffee! My tween even offers to make it for me now. Brian very rarely drank coffee in the morning because of the time it took to make it. Now, he makes himself a cup of coffee almost every morning and has really been enjoying it!
I’ve been enjoying my coffee so much that I couldn’t stop at just drinking it. I had to use it in a recipe and I wanted the recipe to be easy enough to make in the morning. And of course the recipe had to include chocolate! I started out by placing Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls on a greased cookie sheet. Then, I took a teaspoon of mini chocolate chips and pressed them into the top of each cinnamon roll. I put them in the oven at 400°F for 8-10 minutes.
While the cinnamon rolls were baking, I made a Mocha Glaze Drizzle with my Millstone coffee! I put one tablespoon of mini chocolate chips in a bowl and added one tablespoon of hot Millstone Foglifter coffee to the chocolate chips and stirred until the chips melted. Then, I slowly stirred in the frosting that came with the refrigerated biscuits until smooth. I put the mocha glaze into the fridge for 15 minutes to get it to thicken a bit before drizzling on the cinnamon rolls.
