You've no doubt had cinnamon buns at some point before, but perhaps not a variation on the theme that replaces the traditional spice filling with a chocolatey spread, as in this recipe. The method is the same, meaning you make a yeast dough (here, in the Thermomix), then roll it out, spread with the filling, roll it up into a log, slice, and bake. You can use your favorite chocolate-hazelnut cream, such as Nutella, being sure to leave a border all around when spreading it over the dough pieces.
