Chocolate Cake Rolls

My husband has a friend who LOVES Little Debbie cakes! He just can’t get enough of all the seasonal flavors. From Pumpkin Spice Rolls to Chocolate Cake rolls, Little Debbie has it all. I won’t shame our friend for loving them, but if you ever taste a real cake roll, I don’t think there’s any going back! Swiss Cake Rolls are a favorite for many because of the chocolate and the cream inside!

Years ago I made homemade Chocolate Cake rolls and I had linked them to the original source, which was Southern Living. The recipe is no longer there, and a kind reader notified me and asked me for the link. It’s nowhere to be found. So, I thought I’d fix the problem by simply sharing my printed version of this super good and super easy Chocolate Cake Roll with Chocolate Mint Sauce.

Preparing for July 4th Celebration

A “Ham-Fam” Celebration is on our calendar for next Monday! That’s what we call a Cunningham Family get-together! Here was a vacation. Here was a holiday. Everyone was invited to come for the day. Let me share some of our plans with you as we make preparations for a fun day together.

The guest list – We enjoy being together as a family, and as I said, everyone was invited, but let me stop right here and tell you about my expectations as far as my adult daughters and their families are concerned.
