Chocolate Rolls with Cream Cheese Frosting

Hands down, the BEST CHOCOLATE ROLLS you would ever make!

Soft, fluffy dough filled with two layers of chocolate and topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting (and more chocolate, if you’re extra like me).
It’s one of my favourite things to bake especially during the winter months, when the weather is cooler and this sets as the perfect side to have with my coffee or hot chocolate.

Cinammon Rolls is a classic, and I would always love it but when you wanna spice things down a little, Chocolate can be an amazing alternative.

It’s a dessert that would be loved by both kids and adults alike and also, comparatively very easy to prepare as well.

I can totally continue raving about how good these are, but it’s best you try it for yourself and find out why I am so hyped about sharing this with you all and don’t forget to tell me what you think!
