  1. In the bowl of your strand mixer add the flour, sugar, salt and yeast, stir to combine.

  3. Using the dough hook, gradually add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture, add the egg and knead over medium/low speed for 4-5 minutes; the dough will be slightly sticky.
  4. Place the dough in a clean bowl coated with cooking spray and cover with plastic wrap.
  5. Turn your oven light on and place the bowl inside to let the dough rise while you make the filling.
  6. In a bowl stir together the 1/2 c brown sugar and 3 Tbs of softened butter, stir in the finely chopped chocolate.
  7. Roll the dough out into a large rectangle (a little extra flour will keep it from sticking to your counter).

  9. Starting with the long side roll the dough towards yourself and pinch the seam to seal.
  10. Slice the log in half and then slice each half into six equal pieces.
  11. Spray a large pie pan or 9"X13" baking pan with cooking spray and arrange the rolls in the pan.
  12. Cover with plastic wrap and return the pan to the oven (keep the light on) to rise for about 45 minutes - 1 hour.
  13. After the rolls have risen, remove from the oven and discard the plastic wrap.
  14. Preheat your oven to 350ยบ F and bake for 25-28 minutes, until lightly golden at the edges.
  15. Remove the rolls from the oven and let cool about 5-10 minutes.
  16. In a bowl stir together the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla bean paste to form an icing.
  17. Spread the icing over the rolls and serve warm.
