Doesn't every family celebrate the holidays with a Western theme night? 🤠🤣Complete with rodeo games, Western movies and authentic cowboy meals - we fully embraced the theme.
So when we decided to make a giant Swiss Roll to round out our chuck wagon style feast, we renamed our epic dessert creation - A Rodeo Roll!
I have to give credit to my daughter in law for the inspiration for this dessert. It was her idea to make homemade Swiss rolls. I suggested turning it into one giant roll instead of tackling individual rolls and she suggested adding graham crackers and chocolate and to turn it into a s'mores roll. This is what we came up with...
Giant S'mores Swiss Roll
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
1/4 cup ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
2 Tablespoons vegetable shortening, room temperature
8 ounces marshmallow fluff
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted (more as needed)
1/4 cup crushed graham crackers
2 Tablespoons chopped chocolate
4 ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon salted butter, cut into cubes
Pour over cake.
Sprinkle cake with extra graham crackers and chocolate.
You can call it a S'mores Swiss Roll, a Rodeo Roll or a Little Amy Roll - but you need to try this. It's amazing. And if you're feeling your creative juices flowing - change up the fillings to make this roll unique.
