This bread is oozing with hazelnut chocolate flavor. Every bite is as exciting as the next and the next and the…….

How could you not want to gobble up this entire loaf yourself? The chocolate chips just highlight and enhance the hazelnut spread flavor. Because you know you can never have too much chocolate!

The pull apart aspect just means you get the bread in your mouth faster! No messing around with a knife to slice. Just get in there and pull away.

I will warn you that you need to be prepared to get messy when you make this bread. Those gooey amazing layers are created by stacking piece after piece on top of each other. Which means that you are going to need a napkin…….

Or you know lick your fingers a lot. It’s only your family…… {is just me or are standards a little less when no one outside your four walls is going to be eating?}

Ok now here are those Foolproof Tips I promised. Do not fear yeast. It’s a lot easier than you think. It just takes a little longer to make. Starting with a high quality yeast is essential! I use Red Star Yeast Quick Rise in a jar. This brand has the greatest success rate of any yeast out there. I won’t use anything else.

The first thing everyone asks me is how hot should the water be? I have never actually measured the temperature. I use water about as hot as I like to take a shower. Yeast doesn’t like a cold shower or a scalding hot one. Goldilocks syndrome. Just go by how you like your showers. Don’t forget that yeast needs “food”. For every tablespoon of yeast you use you need 1 teaspoon of sugar.

The next question I get is how do you get the dough to rise? As soon as you start to make your dough turn your oven on to 200. Make the dough. Take a dishcloth and get it wet with hot water. Wring it out really really really good! Turn the oven off, place the towel over the bowl with the dough and place in warm oven. Walk away! Don’t be tempted to check in on it all the time to see if it’s working. Come back in an hour and you will have a beautifully doubled in size ball of dough. This has never not worked for me. It has 100% success rate!

Do you have any other questions about yeast dough? Let me know and I will do my best to answer them.
