Sweet braids with chocolate chips recipes

Sweet braids with chocolate chips


The sweet Trecce with chocolate chips are made with a delicious, light and healthy milk brioche bread for our children’s breakfast. They are very soft and delicate with a truly irresistible taste


  • 200 g manitoba flour
  • 100 g flour
  • 50 g sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of seed oil
  • Approximately 150 ml of milk
  • 7 g brewer’s yeast
  • 100 g chocolate chips


  1. Keep the chocolate chips in the freezer.
  2. Warm up a little milk and dissolve the fresh or dehydrated brewer’s yeast in it.
  3. Place the flours in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook.
  4. Add the milk with the yeast and sugar and knead.
  5. Add the oil and gradually the milk to the mixture.
  6. Do not add it all at once but only after the dough has absorbed the previously added milk. If you already have a soft consistency, do not add more milk.
  7. Knead until the mixture has twisted around the hook and completely detached from the sides of the bowl.
  8. Add the chocolate chips and work again until incorporated.
  9. Work it quickly with your hands to obtain a smooth ball and then place it in a bowl; seal with cling film.
  10. Leave the dough to rise for approximately 2 -3 hours or until doubled in a dry place. I usually cover the bowl with a fleece blanket.
  11. After the indicated time, turn the dough onto the work surface, form a cylinder and divide it into 5 pieces of approximately 100 g each.
  12. Roll out each ball into a snake and form the braid.
  13. Place the braids on the baking tray lined with baking paper and leave to rise for about an hour.
  14. Brush with the beaten egg yolk.
  15. Heat the oven to 200° static and when it is hot, bake for 10 minutes and then continue cooking at 180° static for another 20 minutes until completely cooked.
  16. Remove from the oven and enjoy the delicious sweet Trecce with chocolate chips and enjoy them hot. You can keep them for a couple of days or freeze them cooked. Before eating them, reheat them for a few minutes in the oven and they will become very soft!!!
