Recipe by Peggy Lynn
This recipe is one that I adapted from a Bridgford Rolls brand recipe. Very delicious rolls that would be perfect for a Holiday breakfast or anytime that you want something special. I use alot of the powdered sugar icing and chocolate syrup when I make these. Did I mention Chocolate and Orange?

Another home run by Peggy Lynn! These were so full of flavor - the orange/chocolate is such a great combo! I used the Hershey's Special Dark syrup... just writing about it now makes me want to bake another batch! Thanks for another great recipe!
- 1 (21 count) packagefrozen Parker House Rolls (I usually end up using around 21 of the rolls, I prefer the type that look like golf balls)
- 1⁄4 cup melted butter
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon orange extract
- 1⁄2 chopped pecans (optional)
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2 -4 tablespoons orange juice (I used four)
- 1⁄4 cup chocolate syrup (I actually drizzle the Chocolate Syrup over the rolls until I get a good coverage and it looks nice)
Directions See How It's Made
- Lightly grease a 10-12 cup fluted bundt pan.(Mine is a 10-cup).
- Mix together melted butter, sugar, and then the orange extract.
- Dump the rolls into the lightly greased bundt pan, trying to make sure they are evenly distributed.
- Sprinkle the pecans over the rolls if you are using them.
- Spoon the melted butter mixture over the rolls--again make sure it is evenly distributed.
- Next, you need to let the dough rise until it is double in size.
- This may vary quite a bit as to the amount of time it takes to rise.
- I have found that it can take three hours to overnight, depending on temperature etc.
- When the dough has risen to double in size, bake on center rack of a preheated 350 degree oven for 30-40 mins, or until golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and invert onto a serving platter of your choice.
- Mix the powdered sugar and the orange juice together and drizzle it over the hot rolls.
- When it has cooled, drizzle with 1/4 cup (or more) of the chocolate syrup.
- This also tastes great reheated in the microwave.
- Please note prep time does not include the time that it takes for the dough to rise*.
