    We have done Christmas tree rolls in our family for over 100 years. We have been using Rhodes Rolls since the mid-90’s. We decorate with candied pecans, sprinkles, red hots, whatever we have on hand at the time. It was my honor to share this tradition with the new generation this year. Having the 6 year old granddaughter help decorate this year.

      I’m sorry that happened! Yes the rolls have to rise or the rolls will be dense. I’d be happy to send you a replacement coupon this time. Please call our Customer Satisfaction department at 1-800-876-7333, so we can get some information from you.
