To call these rolls are “chocolate-y” is an understatement. These rolls are chocolate itself, from the buns to the filling and glaze! Using tablea lends a deeper, darker, and more pronounced chocolate flavor.

If it’s your first time making bread, don’t worry: rolls are actually very forgiving and easy to work with. It helps to have a stand mixer, but making it by hand—with patience and arm muscle—is not impossible.
