Chocolate Butterhorns

I found this recipe on Life as Mom when looking for things that are good for freezer cooking. I haven't tried them yet, so maybe I shouldn't post this, but they sure look good! I made a few adjustments, like adding some cinnamon sugar and coconut.

Chocolate Butterhorns

1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
4 - 4 1/2 cups flour (I used 2 cups whole wheat and 2 cups all purpose. Then added in 1/3 cup flax seed as well)
1 tsp salt
1 Tb dry yeast, heaping

1-2 cups chocolate chips, depending on how chocolately you want them

Combine all dough ingredients in the pan of your bread machine according tot he manufacturer's directions. Set on dough cycle and start machine. When machine beeps, remove dough from pan and divide into four equal parts. (I ended up dividing into three parts, getting 8 triangles from each one.)
Roll each part into a 12 inch circle and cut each circle into 8 wedges. Sprinkle chocolate chips (and whatever else you may want in them) over the surface of each wedge. Roll each wedge like a crescent roll, starting with the bottom of the triangle and ending with the point.
If preparing ahead, place rolls, point down, on baking sheet and freeze. Once frozen, place in freezer bags and store in freezer until needed.
To bake: Grease baking sheet or line with parchment or silpat mat. Place frozen rolls on prepared sheet. Allow to thaw and rise for five hours or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake rolls for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
