Chocolate Orange Pull-Apart Bread made with Rhodes Rolls

This recipe makes a huge impact, but is truly simple to make. And it’s all due to using Rhodes Dinner Rolls.

These rolls are super popular and I always have a bag on hand in my freezer. They can be baked as rolls, but are also a great foundation for other recipes.
