Hi everyone! It’s me again, Celeste from The Whole Serving, back with a recipe that will literally have you licking your fingers and lips.

I hardly ever, more like never use my bread machine for baking breads I usually only use it for dough because it makes things so much easier, but you can certainly make this dough without it if you don’t have one.

Such a pretty dough, don’t you think.

A few months ago my daughter became obsessed with cinnamon rolls after using leftover pizza dough I had to make a batch. She likes the plain and simple brown sugar and cinnamon filled rolls, while I like to experiment and try different fillings.

I like the combination of nut butter and chocolate so I gave it a try. I used cashew butter because my daughter is allergic to peanuts, however, you can use peanut butter if it’s not a problem for you.

My daughter isn’t a big chocolate lover and didn’t want to give these a try, but she did and she was blown away by the out-of-this-world deliciousness. I also took a batch to work and it was a hit with them as well.

This is over-the-top delicious, trust me. Make it for your family and watch it disappear.
