Reese’s Stuffed Sweet Rolls

Warning: This recipe calls for an overloaded amount of peanut butter that only certain people can handle. Liking this recipe requires a true passion for peanut butter and chocolate ooey-gooeyness.

I was only half kidding in that disclaimer statement above. Some of you might not like peanut butter, but I know a majority of you do. When you make these Reese’s Stuffed Sweet Rolls, you will be in peanut butter heaven. I’ve been in peanut butter heaven before, but this much sugar for breakfast? Awesome. If there was a limit on how much sugar can be added to a baked good, this recipe would be illegal.

How did we come up with this amazing treat? Well, one, we’ve had this idea for at least 6 months, but never got it just right. A lady gave us the idea of a peanut butter sweet roll last year when we were running our garage sale. We tried several different versions over the past year.  All very edibly delicious, but just not yet perfected. We eventually got it just right- peanut butter cream and Reese’s peanut butter cups inside. Mmmm. Let me tell you, just eating the filling is amazing. But it’s really good with the roll holding it together.

I don’t know if I’ve told you before, but in our family, when we eat sweet rolls, the rule is you eat the middle last because it’s the gooiest. When mom makes sweet rolls, she puts the smallest roll in the middle. Then, you see, we have the choice to make of whether to go for the biggest roll, or the most desired middle roll.

When I’m in the driver’s seat, I put the biggest one in the middle and make sure I get to it first when it is time to dig in.

Big sweet roll + baked in the middle of the pan + gooey inside = Super gooey sweet roll.

How to Make Cinnamon Roll Dough

There are options to making the sweet roll dough. If you have a stand mixer, I would recommend using that to knead your dough. If you have a bread machine, that works good too, since you can use the dough setting and be hands off while it does it’s thing. If you have neither, you can make it by hand, but you’ll need to knead the dough for a good 5 to 7 minutes.

So join me in peanut butter heaven and make these sweet rolls right now! You can’t say no to that ooey gooey goodness, can you?

What you need to make sweet rolls:

Stand Mixer: Ok, you don’t 100% need this, but it does make life easier.
Red Star Yeast: My favorite yeast! It’s so forgiving and I have perfect baked goods, every time.
Pastry Mat: This makes clean-up a breeze.
Dough Cutter: I JUST got one of these. What have I done without it all these years? Works as a scraper too, to get stuck-on dough off surfaces.
Baking Pan 9×13 or 10×15, depending on what you need.

Peanut Butter Cream:

  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 20 Reese's peanut butter cups chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream warmed
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup milk chocolate chips


  • Add the warm milk and the yeast to a stand mixer bowl. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until yeast is activated. Add the egg, butter, salt, sugar and flour. With with dough hook, beat on low for 2 minutes until the dough is combined and forms a ball. Then let the dough hook knead the dough on medium speed for about 6-7 minutes. Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 20-30 minutes.
  • While the dough is rising, make the peanut butter cream. In a bowl, blend together peanut butter, powdered sugar, butter, and milk using an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  • Roll out the dough into about a large rectangle. Spread the peanut butter cream to cover the dough. Sprinkle the chopped Reese's cups on top, then roll it up like a jelly roll. Cut it into 15 slices and place them into a greased 9x13 baking pan.
  • Set the pan of sweet rolls in a warm place to rise for 20 minutes. After they are done rising, drizzle the warmed heavy cream overtop all of the rolls.
  • Bake them at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes until lightly browned.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, warm the ⅓ cup peanut butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and stir. Drizzle the warmed peanut butter over the sweet rolls.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Stir the chips and warm for additional 10-second intervals, stirring in between, just until the chips are melted. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the rolls.
  • Makes about 15 rolls, depending on how many rolls you cut.

I can’t eat gluten or peanuts so would have to adapt to almond butter and dark chocolate but with gluten free that could only help ;o) My question is, why the cream over the top before baking? What does that do?
