These are not a low-fat, low-calorie, low-sugar, low-carb dessert. If any of those things frighten you, please turn away now. For everyone else, these are the most delicious cinnamon roll variation I have ever tasted.
Sweet rolls have been around for centuries, but it is thought that the cinnamon version we have today most likely originated in Sweden, and brought to America by German and Swedish immigrants, so be sure to thank them for that.
Gooey, delicious, and chock full of chocolaty-nutty goodness, these cinnamon rolls are best left for a special holiday because those are the only times, I have heard, when calories don't count. Cinnamon rolls have always been a Christmas morning treat in my family, but this year they came a little early.
The original recipe is an adaptation from two other recipes, the sources of which I do not recall, with the addition of my nutty chocolate variation. These are 100% from scratch, but if you want to bypass the extra work, you can use a high-quality pre-made dough and just use the filling and frosting.
If you try this recipe, I hope you'll let me know how it worked out!
