A few months ago, I made chocolate peanut butter sweet rolls, and they were a complete bust. Such a big fail!

The chocolate sweet rolls were the driest and most stale-tasting rolls, even straight out of the oven. It was crazy.

The peanut butter glaze also didn’t turn out quite how I wanted it to. Major fail, but I want to make them again because, hello, who wouldn’t love to have a perfect recipe for chocolate peanut butter sweet rolls?

Stay tuned on that because I’m going to work on it.

I moved on for now though, and fortunately I found a winner that still gives us the amazing opportunity to have peanut butter in our cinnamon rolls = yay!!

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Sweet Rolls are a hit. They are incredible, and completely 100% opposite of a fail.

They’re actually perfect.

If there’s one person that I think this recipe is made for, it’s my brother. He loves a good batch of homemade cinnamon rolls, and he loves all things peanut butter (sound familiar? Must be in our genes!). This is literally made for him.

I know he’s going to see this Peanut Butter & Jelly Sweet Rolls recipe and want to make these right away. He and his wife love to make recipes from the blog, so I’m excited to hear their feedback when they try this — I know they’ll try this recipe!

All peanut butter lovers will die for these rolls though, of course. The rolls are soft and pillowy, a really nice puffy and soft roll!

The peanut butter filling is very peanut buttery, and totally delicious. It’s sweetened with a touch of brown sugar and honey!

And these rolls are topped with a rich, sweet, peanut butter frosting on top too — it’s to-die-for. A smattering of jam in the center certainly doesn’t hurt either, and if you are a peanut butter fan, especially PB&J, you’ve got to try these!

If you love PB&J-themed recipes, I’ve got quite a few! Check out this Peanut Butter & Jelly Monkey Bread, and these Peanut Butter & Jelly Thumbprints. You’ll love both of those!
