Chocolate rolls

I've always wanted to try these. Whenever I'm making cinnamon rolls and it's time to sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on, I always think "I wonder what this would be like if I used cocoa?" So, here it is!!!

You all know how to make cinnamon rolls, so pretty much I'll just tell ya what I did in the short version.

Just use what ever bread recipe that you like for cinnamon rolls. When you're all ready to spread on the ingredients then you just spread the butter. Instead of cinnamon and sugar just sprinkle cocoa and sugar (I used 1/3 cup cocoa and 1/3 cup sugar). And you know the rest, then bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes and when you take 'em out of the oven make a glaze (I just use powdered sugar and water) and drizzle it on while they're still nice and hot.

I have to admit I was really surprised at how good they turned out. I would even make these again. There are so many things you could add to spruce 'em up - nuts, dried cherries, maybe some spices. Although, I really liked 'em just like this.

And uh.... so did Daniel, (he didn't know I was taking his picture)

and Andrew.

Sarah didn't want any.


  1. What a great idea! Sounds so yummy. I'll have to try it. I loved Sarah's picture by the way, beauty queen!

  2. Such sweet attitude! And I love the chocolate rolls, too! I can't believe I've spent a lifetime being a chocolate lover and I've never tried that--thank you for a wonderful idea--those I have to make!

  3. Chocolate swirls of heaven and its not even a dream...Saturday morning this will be at my house!!! Love this idea Val!
