Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls

2 packages active dry yeast (or 4 1/2 tsp)
1-1/4 cups warm water (110 to 115)
1.5 cups warm milk (110 to 115)
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 eggs
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons salt
7 cups all-purpose flour

3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/8 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 package (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1.5 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water; let stand 5 minutes. Add the milk, butter, eggs, honey, salt and 1.5 cups flour; beat on low for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a large greased bowl; turning once. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divide into two pieces. Roll each into a 14-in. x 8-in. rectangle; spread with butter. Combine the brown sugar, chips and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges and press into dough.

Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut each into 12 slices. Place cut side down in four greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dishes. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks.

For glaze, in a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over rolls.Name:  943490_190116744475774_1113781320_n.jpg
