The aroma and warmth of freshly baked sweet bread is a homely comfort that is hard to resist.  Chocolate Pecan Roll is a fresh take on the good old cinnamon rolls, where the rolls are filled with a generous amount of chocolate spread and pecan nuts instead of cinnamon sugar, giving it a lovely chocolate-nutty flavour.
