Mondays are hard.  Right?

I know what you’re thinking.. It’s Tuesday.  And you’re right.  Because I didn’t post this on Monday.  Because.. Mondays are hard.

Prepare yourself for the upcoming unoriginal segue..

You know what would make Mondays better? (there it was)  An Overnight Fruit Loop Sweet Roll.  Made with actual Fruit Loop cereal milk.  And smothered in a fruity glaze.

Oh, I know what you’re thinking right now.  And let me just say.. I know how you feel.

Ok.  So I don’t really know what you’re thinking, but I know what I’m thinking.  Homemade sweet rolls are incredibly difficult and require yeast and rises and nobody has the time for that.  Plus.  Do we really need to add fruit loops to sweet rolls?  Is that, like, breakfast sugar overkill?

First of all let me address the question of do we need to do this?  And let you know that yes.  Yes we do.

Why?  Because food is meant to be enjoyed.  Food is a gift.  I’m not saying that all things should be consumed at all times.  No.  These are definitely a special breakfast item.  Typical mornings around here involve oatmeal.  But every once in a blue moon I decide that we’re all due for a little treat.  Which is where these little fellas come in.

Now onto the next thing.  The yeast.  Yes, these do use yeast.  It’s not so bad!  It does take time, but honestly most of the time is just letting the dough sit there and letting the yeast do it’s thing.  The hands on time for these is really short and simple.  Mix the dough, roll the dough.  Sprinkle with fun colored crushed up fruit loops.  Bake.  Glaze.  Sprinkle some more fun colored fruit loops.  Eat and enjoy.

The rest?  It’s seriously just letting the dough sit.

The best part?  These sit and rise overnight.  So we can prep this the night before we want to eat them.  Come morning time remove them the fridge, let them rise one more time and bake.  Definitely an easy task for the morning. Something I can handle even without my coffee.

One of my favorite parts about these Fruit Loop sweet rolls?  They’re made with cereal milk. You know how when you have a bowl of cereal the milk becomes infused with the sweetness of the cereal.  One of my favorite ways to drink milk.  I was never much of a fan of just plain milk.

Well, cereal milk is basically infusing the milk with the cereal and then straining the cereal out so you just have the milk.  It’s the genius creation of Christina Tosi.  She’s the mastermind behind the Momofuku Milk Bar in NY and the author of the cookbook Momofuku Milk Bar.  Which I highly recommend if you have a sweet tooth.  It’s definitely an inspiring book!

Anywho.. this Fruit Loop cereal milk brings a hint of fruit flavor to the dough itself.

The glaze is also made with cereal milk.  But I felt it still needed a little extra, so I added some vanilla and lemon extracts to give just the right amount of Fruit Loop flavor.  The glaze really makes the entire roll.

Ingredients

Cereal Milk

  • cups fruit loops
  • ½1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • tsp salt

Sweet Rolls

  • 1 cup cereal milk, from above
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cups all purpose flour

Filling

  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter , melted
  • 1 cup fruit loops, crushed

Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp cereal milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp lemon extract
  • 1 drop red food coloring, optional

Topping

  • additional crushed Fruit Loops

Instructions

Cereal Milk

  • Pour the milk into a large container. Crush the Fruit Loops with your hands as you pour them into the milk. Let this sit for at least 20 minutes at room temperature.
  • Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the cereal.
  • Stir in the sugar and salt. Store in refrigerator.

Sweet Rolls

  • Warm the milk, not to boiling, should be about 110 degrees, pour into large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and the yeast. Allow this to sit for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the butter and mix. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing in between.
  • Add salt and flour. Mix slowly until combined.
  • Lightly flour a smooth work surface. Place the ball of dough on the floured surface. Knead it for about a minute until smooth. Add more flour as needed so that the dough isn't sticky and forms into a ball.
  • Place the dough into a greased mixing bowl. Cover and set in a warm place. (I turn on my stove to about 250 and then turn it off and you can place the bowl on top of the stove if it's warm enough or inside if needed.)
  • Let this sit for about 2 hours. The dough should be double the size, remove from the bowl and place on flat floured surface. Roll the dough out using a floured rolling pin to a rectangle about 18 by 12 inches.
  • Brush the dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with the crushed fruit loops.
  • Roll the dough starting farthest away from you and rolling toward yourself.
  • Pinch the dough where it meets so that the dough holds its shape in the roll. Cut into 12 even rolls. Place rolls into a greased or parchment paper lined 9x13 baking tray.
  • Cover and place in refrigerator overnight for second rise.
  • In the morning remove the rolls from the refrigerator and set in a warm place for another 2 hours for the final rise.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake rolls for about 25 minutes until just turning golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile prepare the glaze, add the powdered sugar to a small mixing bowl. Pour in the cereal milk stir to combine. Add in the vanilla and lemon extract. Stir to combine.
  • I added a drop of red food coloring to give the glaze more of a pink color. This is optional.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the sweet rolls. Top with crushed fruit loops. Serve and enjoy!
