- 1-1/2 teaspoons shortening
- 5 eggs, separated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup plus 2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar, divided
- 3 tablespoons baking cocoa
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups cold fat-free milk
- 2 packages (3.3 ounces each) instant white chocolate pudding mix or 2 packages (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed
- 3 tablespoons fat-free caramel ice cream topping, divided
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, divided
- 1 tablespoon fat-free hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed
- Coat a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in baking pan with cooking spray; line with parchment paper. Grease the paper with shortening; set aside.
- In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in vanilla. Combine 1 cup confectioners' sugar, cocoa and salt; gradually add to egg yolks. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into egg yolk mixture. Spread into prepared pan.
- Bake at 350° for 14-16 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Immediately invert the cake onto a kitchen towel dusted with remaining confectioners' sugar. Gently but quickly peel off parchment paper.
- Roll up cake in the towel jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on a wire rack.
- In a small bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping. Set aside 1 cup. Unroll cake; spread remaining filling evenly over cake to within 1/2 in of edges. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of caramel topping; sprinkle with 6 tablespoons of walnuts. Roll up again.
- Spread reserved filling over cake roll. Drizzle with hot fudge sauce and remaining caramel topping. Sprinkle with remaining walnuts. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 12 servings.

Reviews for Double-Chocolate Cream Roll
"My cake had plenty of "substance". I dont know what the last reviewer did wrong but I had no problems."
"I had no problems with the recipe. Gorgeous presentation, great reviews from guests. I would like a little more dark chocolate and/or caramel."
"This recipe was HORRIBLE! The recipe says to bake for 14 - 16 minutes. I only baked it for 11 minutes & it was already bouncing back in the middle. I generously greased the baking sheet AND the waxed paper & still couldn't get the paper off the cake. The cake was sooooo thin & there wasn't really much "substance" to it even in the little corner that I did get peeled off. I would not recommend this recipe."
