Churro Cinnamon Rolls with Chocolate Drizzle

I have to admit, I've never been much of a baker. I think it's because I hate math. No seriously, hear me out! Even since I was a kid, I've always despised anything that required me to deal with measurements, fractions, percentages, you name it...(Let's just ignore the fact that I've made a living as an engineer in my adult life, which requires lots of math).

Cooking to me has always been my strong suit, because you can season and measure as you go. I'm a free spirit, I suppose, and baking just feels so...regimented. Strict. Baking can be so unforgiving if you're not spot on with your measurements, and if your ingredients aren't quite up to par.

Take baking bread, for instance. One wrong move, and you're, well, toast. (Pun so totally intended). I've never successfully done baked bread. Don't get me wrong. I've tried. Oh, how I've tried! But the whole "waiting 17,000 hours for my bread to rise" thing probably has a lot to do with my failures in this area. I just don't have the patience!

Besides using Fleischmann's® RapidRise® Yeast in these delicious cinnamon rolls, I use cornstarch to keep the cinnamon-sugar filling from going all over the place when these are baking. It's also the secret to why those ever-popular cinnamon rolls you get at the mall always look so darn perfect.

I was inspired to make these because one of my other favorite desserts, which I have yet to make successfully, are churros. The combination of sugar and cinnamon is one that reminds me so much of childhood. Cinnamon is a key element in lots of Latin desserts, like arroz con dulce, coquito, and flan. Often when churros are served in Latin restaurants, they're served with a warm chocolate sauce for dipping.

I top my churro cinnamon rolls with a deliciously creamy chocolate drizzle because I'm a firm believer of go big, or go home. It's so easy to make, just melt chocolate and cream or milk in the microwave for 30 seconds, and you've got instant chocolate sauce.
