They're back, they're back! Pillsbury brought back their seasonal favorite: Grands! Hot Cocoa Rolls for a limited time to ring in the holiday season.

Hot cocoa seems to be the "it" flavor now that we're over pumpkin spice. See M&Ms take on it and these Cocoa Hershey's Kisses to see what we mean. And we have zero complaints. The recent sweet dough re-release from Pillsbury comes in a tube of 5 "big" rolls and looks like cinnamon rolls except they use a hot cocoa filling instead of cinnamon and a creamy marshmallow icing. It's cinnamon rolls meets mug of hot cocoa for a breakfast food mashup we'll eat for dessert and snacks, too.

You should start seeing the Hot Cocoa Rolls in stores like Target and Walmart in the coming days if you haven't already. If you can't find them yet, try these hot chocolate recipes to get you through until the shelves at your local store are stocked.
