Chocolate Buns on a Stick
With some recipes, it’s love at first sight/bite for me. I love the combination of yeast dough and chocolate. The irresistible smell when it comes out of the oven is simply divine. And the beautiful golden hue of the roll when it’s done is a sight for sore eyes.
I can only describe these are perfect!
I wanted to add a new twist to the conventional bun with chocolate and I couldn’t be happier with the result! Imagine a chocolate-filled bun on a stick.
It’s a beautiful sight to see the bun wrapped around the skewer with chocolate poking out here and there. These are easy to make and taste amazing!
Your loved ones will thank you for it, I promise.
Makes 20 buns
500 grams white flour (half a kilo)
11 grams dry yeast (1 Tbsp)
or 25 grams fresh yeast
40 g sugar (2 Tbsp)
5 grams salt (1 tsp)
120 ml canola oil (1/2 cup)
220 ml warm water (1 cup minus 1 full Tbsp)
Chocolate spread of choice
1 egg, beaten, for the egg wash
1. Place the flour, yeast, and sugar in the bowl of a mixer, add the salt, oil and water and mix until you get a soft smooth dough. Place the dough in a greased bowl and cover. Let rise around 2 hours or until doubled in size.
2. Divide the dough into 20 pieces and roll each piece into a thin 8×20 cm rectangle. Spread a thin layer of the chocolate spread over the dough, roll up and elongate it to 40 cm.
3. Wrap the rolled up dough loosely around the skewer, cutting off any excess dough. Let rise for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, preheat an oven to 180°C.
4. Brush with the egg wash and bake for around 20 minutes until golden.
5. You can serve these as is or remove the bun from the skewer and then discard the skewer.
