Has anyone ever made rolls that are similar to Little Debbie's Swiss Cake Rolls. I love those and wish I could make some if I had the recipe. Thanks in advance.

I know he has copied Twinkies, maybe he's done Little Debbies too! Click "recipes" on the left. They are in alphabetical order.
If you check the top secret recipe website, you'll find free recipes and others you have to pay for. At one time all of their recipes were free but not now.
I don't know how close this is but:
I notice it did not include the choc coating.
If you'd want to try something similar that's delicious and probably less work to make than the rolls, do a search for a whoopie pie recipe. These are sandwich cookies with a cake-like texture and a creamy filling. Sorry I don't have a link handy to a good recipe; maybe someone else would post one.
I found the same link already posted. I suppose you could dip the whole thing in chocolate afterwards?
I use a recipe called "Gobs" that I cut out of a newspaper years ago. Cooks.com has several recipes for Gobs. These sandwich cookies have a cake-like texture and the filling is really, really creamy. My family loves them!
I found this recipe in an old book haven't tried it yet
Little Debbie Swiss Roll Cakes
5 medium egg whites
5 medium egg yolks lightly beaten
1 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbs cocoa
3 Tbs milk, vitamin D
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbs cocoa
Whipped Cream Filling
1 cup whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 to 4 Tbs powdered sugar
Crisco all vegetable shortenning (to grease pan)
flour (to flour pan)
wax paper (to line the pan)
1. Beat egg whites until frothy. Add one cup confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff. Add three tablespoons cocoa and mix well. Fold in egg yolks. Grease a ten by fifteen inch jelly roll pan with vegetable shortening. Line the bottom of a pan with a sheet of wax paper, then grease and flour the wax paper and the inside of the rest of the pan. Spread the cake mixture evenly in the pan and bake twenty minutes at 375 F
2. While the cake bakes combine the milk, one cup of powdered sugar, and one tablespoon cocoa to make icing. Blend until smooth.
3. Sprinkle powdered sugar over a clean dish towel, and turn out the baked cake on it. Cover the cake with a second dish towel dampened with water until the cake cools.
4. Mix the whipped cream: Beat whipping cream and vanilla extract until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form.
5. Spread the whipped cream over the top of the cake.
6. Roll up both ends of the cake toward the center, creating two rolls. Cut the rolls apart, cut each roll in half, and frost with icing.
