Chocolate Brioche Twists

We  indulged ourselves with these brioche treats over the weekend. I made them with love for the people I love the most ......πŸ’•πŸ’–πŸ’—πŸ’˜πŸ’πŸ’Ÿ  


300 gr flour

160 gr soft butter
100 gr chocolate
3 eggs
5 gr dry yeast mixed with 3 - 4 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp sugar
1 egg yolk 
1/2 tsp salt

Place the flour, salt, sugar and yeast mixture into a mixing bowl.
Add the butter and the eggs and form a dough.
Leave the dough to rest, covered with a tea towel for 1 1/2 hours.
Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead it for a minute or two.
Place the dough back into a clean mixing bowl, cover with food wrap and leave it to prove in the fridge over night.
In the morning, get the dough out, it is going to be a cold and hard to handle but at least it's not sticky . 

my little boy was waiting patiently, the smell was divine 

even teddy got one 

Divide the dough into six balls and roll each ball into a rectangle. 
Grate the chocolate on the top, roll it up and cut it lengthwise to get two parts.
Twist the parts and form a knot or a wreath.

Place the knots onto a baking tray, leave to rest for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat your oven on 180 C.
Just before you bake them, brash with a egg yolk and a little bit of milk.
Bake for 30 - 40 minutes.

Serve them warm ...


  1. Your chocolate brioche knot is amazing, I am not a very good bread maker or baker of yeast based products, though I am getting better, so admire anyone who makes anything like this. I really like these and be happy to eat them any time of day. So nice you made them with loved ones in mind,

  2. Thank you Shaheen, I am a baker in my heart, you should give a go making these, easy peasy and you can't go wrong x

  3. These look so yummy! I don't bake much, so I always admire when other people create such lovely pastries.
