Nutella Rolls

 I made up some Nutella rolls, This turn out really well, it has an intense chocolate flavor. Nutella is not only in the filling, but in the icing also.

So for the roll, this is based on an egg bread recipe from my Better Crocker Cook Book:

About 4 -6 cups of flour
1 package of yeast ( I used 3 t of bread machine yeast because that is all I had)
3 T sugar
3 T butter
1/2 t salt

1 egg (original recipe calls for 2 eggs)

 Heat milk, sugar, butter and salt until it is warm (about 105 - 115 degrees Fahrenheit) stir in the yeast.  Let is sit about 5 minutes until it gets frothy.

Add in 1 cup of flour and the egg. mix until it is well blended. On a well floured surface,  kneed in more flour until until it is a moderately stiff and is smooth and elastic. Place dough in a bowl of about 1 T vegetable oil and ensure the dough is well cover with the oil. let the dough double in size in a warm spot. ( about 1 hour)

To make the filling I used:
1 cups sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup Nutella
1 t vanilla

Thoroughly heat all the ingredients. Let cool slightly.

After the dough has doubled, punch it down.

I rolled the dough to form a rectangle (about 9 x 13), spread your filling on the dough, roll up from the long end and seal the end. Cut about 1 inch rolls and place in greased 9x13 backing pan. Let the rolls double in size before baking ( about 30 minutes). Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

To make Nutella frosting:

1T Nutella
1/4 t vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar.

Combine first 3 ingredients, with a mixer, blend in enough milk to make the frosting the consistency you want.  (usually not a lot, only a few tablespoons) Spread frosting on finished rolls while still warm.
