2 ¾ cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons unsalted butter or coconut oil
1 egg
1 tablespoon instant yeast
½ cup water
¼ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt


¼ cup (½ stick) butter, melted (or coconut oil)
⅔ cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
1 drop of Cinnamon Bark oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


4 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
¼ cup (½ stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tablespoon coconut milk (to desired thickness)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a large bowl combine the flour, yeast, and salt.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl combine the sugar, butter, water, and milk. Heat in the microwave until the mixture is hot and the butter is almost melted. Let the mixture cool. Gradually add the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Add the egg and mix until a soft and sticky dough forms.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  4. Knead by hand on a lightly floured surface for 3-4 minutes. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 10 minutes.
  5. Once the dough has rested, roll it out into a rectangle. Prepare the filling by combining all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl except for the butter. Spread the butter over the top of the rolled dough, then cover with the filling. Cut out 24 strips of dough. Roll each up into a tight roll.
  6. Place the rolls into a greased 9×13 baking dish and place a piece of aluminum foil over top. Turn off your oven and place the covered rolls inside to rise for 45 minutes.
  7. Remove the rolls from the oven and turn ON your oven to 375 degrees. Once heated, remove the foil and bake the rolls for 15-18 minutes or until the centers are lightly golden brown in color.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before frosting. While rolls are cooling, prepare the frosting by combining all of the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and beating by hand until smooth. Spread over the tops of the rolls.

Coconut Hot Chocolate

Coconut Hot Chocolate - Cinnamon Bark Oil - Kim Beasley

If you've never tried making hot chocolate with coconut milk, now is the time. Coconut milk takes hot chocolate to the next level by making it the creamiest lactose-free drink you will ever have the pleasure of tasting.


Hot Chocolate
1 cup of coconut milk
2–3 scoops of unsweetened cocoa powder or your favorite cocoa mix.
1–2 toothpicks Cinnamon Bark oil
2–3 tablespoons of sugar or agave

Coconut Whipped Cream
1 13-ounce can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon sugar or agave (optional)


  1. Start the whipped cream by refrigerating the can of coconut milk overnight. Open can and put the thick chunks in a bowl. Set aside the remaining milky liquid substance for making hot chocolate.
  2. Add optional sweetener to the coconut cream chunks. Using a hand mixer, beat until you get a light, whipped texture. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan, put the remaining liquid coconut milk from the can, or coconut milk from a carton. Warm to the desired temperature. If you use milk from the can it will be a more creamy hot chocolate.
  4. Once warm add in cocoa powder and sweetener.
  5. Dip a toothpick in the Cinnamon Bark bottle and swirl in the mixture.
  6. Place a dollop of fresh coconut whipped cream onto your hot cocoa, and enjoy!
