It’s a guest-pleasing dessert, that will only seem as if you spent all day baking…but you know the truth. This dessert does not take too long to make, but pleases like a bakery dessert. Also, the ganache drizzle and nuts on top make this roll absolute perfection.

You will first need to cook (or buy) Dulce de Leche for the cream. Dulce de Leche is boiled Sweet Condensed milk.
