Glazed honey rolls are an extra decadent way to prepare dinner rolls for a sweet treat or special side dish for family dinner.

Any type of rolls are my favorite type of rolls, but these sweet rolls are amazing.

You can serve them with a dinner (something with veggies, because balance) or even dessert! Glazed honey just makes them sound that much more decadant.

I didn’t have a cooking thermometer handy, so I let it cool for a few minutes after heating on the oven.

Ideal temperature for the yeast is 115-120 degrees Fahrenheit.

The glaze can just be heated in the microwave.

And then poured on top of the rolls before baking.

The glaze might end up on the bottom of the pan if you use a 9 inch round baking dish like I did in the picture, so you can use a smaller dish if available.

Though the rolls do rise a little more in the oven and will soak up the glaze one way or another!
