  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 4 tsp. instant yeast
  • 6 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 4-4½ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • Food coloring


  • 1 stick butter
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon


  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Heavy cream


Step 1: Heat your milk to 110° F. Remove from heat and stir in the yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Step 2: While the milk and yeast are blooming, add the butter, brown sugar, and salt to your mixing bowl with the dough hook attachment.

Step 3: Add yeast/milk mixture to the mixing bowl and add 4 cups of flour. Mix until the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl. If the dough still looks sticky, add another ¼ cup of flour. Beat with the dough hook for 8 minutes, adding 1 Tbsp. flour at a time, if needed, to get the dough to completely pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Step 4: Once the dough is in a ball, remove from the mixer and separate into smaller balls to add your food coloring.

Step 5: Add a few drops of food coloring to each smaller dough ball. Knead and fold the dough for 2-3 minutes until the color is incorporated.

Step 6: Cover the dough on the counter and let rise for 1 hour. Mix your filling while the dough rises.

Step 7: Divide the risen dough into smaller sections and press together to form one large piece of dough. Roll out into a large rectangle and spread the filling onto the dough. Sprinkle on some Lucky Charms marshmallows.

Step 8: Roll the dough up and cut into rolls with a piece of string. Place rolls into a buttered baking dish, cover, and let rise for another 30 minutes.

Step 9: Bake at 375° F until just golden on top, about 35-45 minutes.

Step 10: Mix your icing while the cinnamon rolls bake. Spread it on top when they are fresh from the oven. Let cool and enjoy.
