Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls

How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day? Personally, I take it as an opportunity to show love to my family, friends, and myself. This usually involves taking time to enjoy some of my own favorite things (such as a face mask, a good book, Grey’s Anatomy, and chocolate), making breakfast for my family, and giving cards and little gifts to my friends. I love giving presents, but to be honest, I’m so indecisive that I’m not an amazing gift giver. And that’s where these Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls come in.

They are pillowy, melt-in-your-mouth tender, and, most important, chocolatey. Because nothing shows love better than chocolate. Especially Eating Evolved Chocolate, which allows you to show love to your body, the environment, and your tastebuds, all at the same time.

These rolls would make the perfect Valentine’s Day breakfast or gift, either to friends/family or to yourself. But if you don’t have time for baking this year, you could also order Eating Evolved products to be delivered right to your door, so you won’t even have to leave the house to give the best Valentines day present out there.

Check out Eating Evolved products here (by ordering through my blog you’ll receive a free jar of mint chocolate spread!) and if you make these rolls be sure to share with me on Instagram.

Happy early Valentine’s Day!
