How about some chocolate fudge cinnamon rolls? You just cannot get enough of it. So fudgy, so gooey.

Here is what you will need:

2 tablespoons sugar

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons margarine

In a bowl, add in the flour, cocoa powder, yeast, sugar, pinch of salt, margarine, one egg, one cup warm milk, and knead until it forms a dough, cover, and let it proof until it doubles in size.

For the filling

3 tablespoons margarine

3 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon powder

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

Mix everything together in a bowl and apply on the rolled dough, then roll the dough like a Swiss roll and cut about 1/2 inch slices. Arrange in a casserole and let it proof. Once it’s proofed to double in size, pour the cream over the rolls and bake in the oven at 180°C for 30 minutes.
