Rise & Grind Espresso Cinnamon Rolls!

Espresso Cinnamon rolls in a glass pan, a cup of coffee sits on the left hand side.

Raise your hand if you like coffee... now raise your hand if you like cinnamon rolls. That's what I thought. I know I can't actually see you, but I'm going to optimistically guess that most of you raised your hands. Cinnamon rolls are an American classic, and to be completely honest, coffee is also the life blood of this country (along with many other countries). I made these rolls as part of the #CoffeeDessertCollab that I put on with a fellow Minnesota food blogger that I met through Instagram. That's right, I threw together an entire collaboration with Carol of @carolsbakingadventures just over the internet.

The weather in Minnesota has been so bizarre lately. One day it’s 85 degrees and the next, it’s 30. I was going to make these Piña Coladas to pretend I was on vacation, but then we had a random cluster of days that I was SWEATING IT OUT and actually was so glad I was making a refreshing drink on the blog for a change. The only thing people don’t tell you, is that photographing frozen things is super hard!

In the foreground sits a melty piece of ice cream cake. It is mint green with layers of cookie crust and fudge layered in, with whipped cream and another thin mint cookie on top. In the background against a subway tile backsplash, you can see the rest of the full cake.

 

I have been a Girl Scout Cookie fan all my life. I also was a Girl Scout for several years as a kid. My mom was one of my troupe leaders and helped me earn enough badges to receive my Bronze award. If you’re not familiar with Girl Scouts, it’s basically an extracurricular activity in which kids can learn about all sorts of topics and activities as well as take part in various volunteer work in their community. Even though I can’t remember everything I did in Girl Scouts, I remember I had a lot of fun!
