I never heard of "Chocolate Rolls" until I married my husband. These were a family favorite when he was growing up so I eventually learned how to make them even though my mother-in-law did not use a recipe..I prepare mine a little differently than she did, but the taste is the same and they became a family favorite in our house also.
