Kids can put this one together the night before and parents can bake it for breakfast or lunch. You can even use any kind of bread–gluten free, whole wheat, etc.!
Alyssa’s Chocolate Rolls6 c. flour 2 sticks butter, melted 2 eggs 1 c. water 2/3 c. cocoa powder ¾ c. sugar 1 packet yeast
Put yeast in a little water, about as hot as bathwater; let sit 5 minutes or until bubbly. Mix all the rest in with spoon in a bowl until it’s too thick to use a spoon. Then knead (mush with your hands) about 5 minutes. Add more flour or water if needed to make a soft dough.
Form into small balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise in warm place 1 hour.
Get a grown-up’s help to preheat the oven and bake the rolls. Bake at 350 for 22 minutes or until done.
Alyssa (age 10) made up this recipe using advice for a basic roll dough and her own idea to make them chocolate! We love them as a snack.
