Chocolate? Cinnamon? Pastry? Yes, please. Pillsbury’s hot cocoa cinnamon rolls are back on shelves, and they’re everything you need in a dessert meets breakfast food.
With Halloween over, some have chosen to skip the traditional Thanksgiving holiday and move straight on to the twinkly lights and glitter of Christmas. If you’re one of these people who have decided to embrace the holiday season early and are seeking to find foods to match (because let’s be honest, it’s still pumpkin-everything most places), Pillsbury’s hot cocoa cinnamon rolls are the way to do it. The classic pasty has been transformed using a chocolate-based dough infused with the spicy taste of cinnamon, and they come with a sugary marshmallow icing.
While cinnamon is, of course, a flavor that carries all the way from the first days of fall through winter, this hot cocoa version screams Christmas and may be the perfect way to usher in the season and the most incredible smell to wake up to on the big day.
If you want to try them for yourself, they’re available at Walmart for under $4.
