Shari's Sexy Seductive Swirly Snacks

So exciting, I made these chocolate swirl rolls without referring to a recipe for the dough, the filling, the oven temperature, or the timer setting! A most superb new combination, my own creation. We had some old grapes in the fridge and some dried plums that had been in the cabinet forever. I thought it was time to use them up. I wanted to use them up in epic fashion. I did. My fruit filling was fabulously succulent and delectable, the perfect match for my quintessentially dramatic chocolate swirl rolls.
