Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Roll – The Bitter Side of Sweet

Written by on October 30, 2020

One of my all time favorite holiday recipes to make is a really good pumpkin roll. I decided to change things up a bit and do a Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Roll!

You guys would never guess that this is one of my most popular post of the year!

It’s so easy to make that anyone can do it!

With a few simple ingredients it will be the star of your dessert table!

Pumpkin rolls are such a classic recipe but let’s make it better by adding chocolate to it! Why not, right?

For this recipe I decided to add mini chocolate chips to my cream cheese layer. I felt like the cake itself is good enough that I didn’t need to change it.

Next I melted chocolate chips and drizzled it over the top for a pretty presentation! It’s just perfect!
