A Beautiful Mess - Chocolate-filled Brioche Rolls

Most of you must know about Pintrest and if you are anything like me, then you are ADDICTED to the place and as I am intrested in food my Boards are fully with food.
I had seen this beautiful looking bread there one day and had pinned to my bread board and have been wanting to make them the day I saw them.
But as bread needs time to make and sometimes I don't have that much free time these days it had taken me while to make this beautiful bread which is from Food Diva's Kitchen.
And I must say she has explained it so good and she has this video whcih shows how to shape this bread which I was so happy to watch as it is only after watching the video that I was able to make this beautiful shape. So do go to her place and watch the video as she shows it very well.

I must say the moment the bread was a bit cool to handle I ate and eating them straigt was so delicious. But if you are a sweet person like me then the bread is not that sweet so when I ate for my breakfast next day ( I MW for a minute) I split opend and spread with butter and also jam.
On the other hand Hans thought it I hadn't used chocolate he would have ate with ham or cheese.
I am sure going to make this bread again and maybe try my hand in making a savoury filling too.

Beautifully Messy Chocolate-Filled Brioche Rolls
250 g (2 cups) all-purpose flour
250 g (2 cups) bread flour
2 eggs
2 teaspoons dried instant yeast
50 g (1.8 oz) butter, melted and cooled
120 g (little more than 1/2 cup) sugar
200 ml (about 3/4 cup) lukewarm milk
1 tablespoon rose water (optional)
50g dark chocolate
Milk, for brushing
Poppy seeds
Melted butter, for brushing

1. In a large bowl mix the flour, the sugar and the butter. Mix for 5 minutes by hand or with a mixer.
2. Add the eggs and mix for a further 5 minutes. Meanwhile, turn on the oven to 50C/122F and turn it off as soon as it has reached the temperature.
3. Let the yeast dissolve in the warm milk in a small bowl. Add the rosewater to the milk/yeast mixture and then incorporate the mixture, little by little, to the flour/sugar bowl and mix for other 5 minutes. The dough should be now smooth and even. If not, place on a board and mix by hand, eventually adding a little flour. Shape it into a ball.
4. Place the ball back into the big bowl (oil it) and place it uncovered in the oven. Let rest for at least an hour up to a couple of hours. Take the ball out of the oven and divide into 2 equal parts.
5. Roll each portion flat into a rectangular shape, grate some chocolate filling on top and finally roll into a cylinder. Divide each cylinder into 4 parts. Take each part and slice thinly about 1/2cm wide. Pinch the ends together and fold backwards to form a ball shape (refer to video above).
6. Place on parchment paper and leave to rise for another 30 minutes, cover with a clean, damp cloth. Preheat the oven to 180C/375F.
7. Brush milk on top and sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until tops are golden brown. As soon as they come out of the oven, brush rolls all over with melted butter. Best eaten on the day they are made

It looks so beautiful! Almost like a work of art! You should have kept it as a decoration and not cut it up. :-)

I am not used to the taste of chocolate at breakfast. These were on the buffet recently on my trip and I didn't realise what they were, so when I put them in my mouth, I was surprised.

I left a comment on your previous posts too, not sure if you didn't publish or they didn't go through.

Sra I did get the comment just that i didn't go and do publish , now I did :-). So did you like the bread after putting them into your mouth or did you spit them out .
