There is something about this classic orange and chocolate combination which never fails to delight you and is surely a winter treat. And what better holiday flavors can you get without orange and chocolate isn't it?
If you have been reading my recipes and posts you must have known by now that whenever it comes to breakfast I want something interesting, flavorful and one that tickles those tastebuds ;)and that's when I came up with amazingly delicious recipe for Orange Chocolate French Toast Roll-ups. Okay I've to confess that I simple Love .. LOOVVEE... LOOOVVVEEE French toasts! There was a time when I used to have only French Toasts for breakfast and I never got tired of having them (can you just believe that? well, that's true) even today I love having them.
I posted a recipe for Nutella Stuffed French Toasts some time ago and I must admit it had been an amazing recipe discovery and everyone enjoyed having those French Toasts. This time I wanted to do something different with the french toasts and that's when I came across this recipe for Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll-ups on Nagi's blog and that's when it struck me why don't I try this with Oranges.
Fortunately fresh Oranges are in abundance these days and when you have home-grown oranges what better thing can you ask for. So this is how this recipe came into existence. When it comes to flavors it already has that classic combination of chocolate and orange but when the chocolate is Nutella it definitely enhances its flavor. Secondly, the cinnamon sugar coating on the top makes it a close cousin of cinnamon rolls and it tastes just like doughnuts!
In short, this is not just a breakfast it's BREAKFAST DESSERT!
So if you are looking for a fancy breakfast or want to treat your loved ones with that special breakfast try out this recipe and impress everyone. This also makes an amazing item for brunch as well and that too in just no time at all.

Orange Chocolate French Toast Roll-Ups
by Hirra Pervaiz December-31-2014
The classic orange chocolate combination and a perfect breakfast/brunch item that has both sweet and citrus flavor with a kick of cinnamon spice and crunch from the sugar, I call it a breakfast dessert and it tastes just like doughnuts!
Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: serves 4 Roll-ups
4 Slices White Sandwich Bread, crust removed Chex
4 Orange Segments, diced small Chex
4 Tbsp Nutella
2 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Milk
1/4 tsp Salt, or less
Cinnamon Sugar Mix
1 Tbsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 Cup Caster Sugar
In a bowl whisk together egg, milk and salt until combine. Use a bowl that has a flat base so that its easy to coast the rolls with Egg Mixture
In a small dish mix together ground cinnamon and caster sugar
Now Flatten the bread slices using a rolling pin. This will help making rolls easily
Spread about 1 Tbsp of Nutella on each slice of bread. Nutella will help in holding the ends of roll together
Add the diced orange segments along the bottom of each slice
Roll the bread up and keep aside making sure the sealing side is faced down so that it seals perfectly, until all slices are rolled up
In a pan melt butter on medium high heat
Roll each roll-up in the egg mixture until fully coated, shake off excess and place in the buttered pan
Cook for about 5 minutes, turning sides so that it cooks evenly
Remove from pan and coat with Cinnamon Sugar Mix immediately. Repeat with all other roll-ups
Serve immediately with a mug of hot chocolate, coffee or even orange juice
This can be made with your choice of fruit such as strawberries or even without fruit
