Enjoy an authentic taste of the Pacific Islands with this traditional coconut rolls recipe!

Prep Time: 5 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 30-35 min
Servings: 9
Skills: Beginning


  1. 18 Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls
    14 ounce can coconut cream or milk
    1/2 cup sugar


Place frozen rolls in 3 rows of 6 in a sprayed 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let thaw and rise until double in size.

Combine coconut cream and sugar and mix well.

Remove wrap from risen rolls and pour coconut cream mixture over the rolls (try to coat each roll completely as you pour so they will have a consistent color as they bake.)

Bake at 350°F 30-35 minutes.

Note: Coconut cream mixture will thicken as the rolls cool.

This recipe is delicious and came out looking like the picture. I think you can also sprinkle some coconut on top of these to make them look more appealing, although you would have to cover them for a time so that the coconut doesnt burn.
But, these are yummy!!!!!!
