Overnight Toffee Cinnamon Rolls will make you even more happy it’s Christmas morning. The make-ahead dough makes it possible!

The turkey leftovers are gone, pumpkin pie all but decimated, and now it’s time to focus on winter, Christmas, and all things cozy, people.
I’m starting with what I plan to serve for breakfast on Christmas day. These OvernightToffee Cinnamon Rolls are it!
Having the only grandchild on my side of the family means Christmas morning is a little intense around here. Everyone wants to be here to watch Elle open her presents.
There’s just something about watching a two-year-old rip into festive wrapping paper to make the season feel extra bright, you know?
Since we’ll have a crowd, and they’ll be here super early, we always serve breakfast and I am definitely baking up a little extra to make sure the whole family gets a bite. And of course with copious amounts of coffee and hot tea. We might be on our second or third caffeinated beverage by 8 a.m., is what I’m saying.
I love to create a little coffee and hot tea bar on our kitchen counter next to the coffee maker and electric tea kettle. I stock it full of flavored creamers, sweeteners and some of my favorite tea bags like Twinings English Breakfast and Earl Gray. I find them to both be really well balanced in flavor and they pair perfectly with these Overnight Toffee Cinnamon Rolls.
These cinnamon rolls have a dough that can be made ahead, making them perfect for Christmas morning. All you’ll have to do is pop them in the oven for proofing as people start walking in the door, and before the tea kettle starts ringing that the water is warm, they’ll be ready for devouring.
You can make the dough up to 2 days ahead of time. They’ll still need about an hour of rising time before they go into the oven to bake, so stick them in your oven on the proof setting, or in a warm place as soon as you get up.
Thanks to using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise™ Yeast, they only need that hour, and a single rise.
When they’ve doubled in size, (about an hour), bake them for half an hour. While your family helps clean up wrapping and tissue paper, you can retreat to the kitchen to whip up the caramel icing.
Totally justified, and acceptable, because caramel.
The original Overnight Toffee Cinnamon Rolls calls for less toffee in the filling and the addition of pecans, but I went a little crazy and added more toffee, and no pecans.
I love pecans, don’t get me wrong, but all of mine got used in a homemade cheeseball (why are they so addicting?!), so I wanted to try focusing on the amazing taste of toffee.
I’m glad I did, because it allows the toffee to envelope your taste buds, and I just dare you not to want more than one of these rolls.
Be sure to bake a little extra because these Overnight Toffee Cinnamon Rolls are sure to disappear! Serve these rolls up alongside my Make-Ahead Breakfast Casserole and you’re all set for a delectable Christmas morning!

I made these delicious scrolls and they tasted amazing but mine looked a little oblong and oval shaped after baking. Did I overcrowd the pan? They were huge as they went into the oven and I had them shaped into as best circles as I could, do you think I made a mistake in the preparation or just the baking? I used a large ceramic dish around 40cm x 25cm

I don't think so, Sarah. Yeast can have a mind of its own in the oven! How did they taste?

Hi, Rhonda! They soften but don't turn totally melty (if that makes sense!). Let me know how you like it!
