Briochettes au Chocolat/Chocolate Mini Brioches

Brioche, my kids will go crazy for this bread,they simply love this rich bread. Usually i get them from the nearby bakery,as yeast god is super kind enough with me till now, i couldnt stop myself trying my hands in making an another brioche dough for making this mini brioche aka briochette.We call mini brioches as briochette, actually if you have visited Paris you must know very well the famous crossiant aka crescent and pain au chocolat, a flaky bun with chocolates inside.

I tried to reproduce the famous pain au chocolat with brioche dough and prepared this briochettes, they turned out extremely awesome,we couldnt stop ourselves having this tiny attractive briochettes for our snacks. My kids enjoyed thoroughly and they simply love it.




3cups Bread flour or all purpose flour
1tbsp Active dry yeast
1/2cup Milk (luke warm)
3nos Egg yolks
1/4cup Sugar +1tsp Sugar
1tsp Salt
150grms Butter
1no Egg yolk+1tsp Milk (for brushing)
Chocolate bar or chocolate chunks (as per need)

Mix the yeast,a teaspoon of sugar and salt to the luke warm milk, keep aside until the yeast turns foamy.

Meanwhile take the flour,egg yolks,sugar in a large bowl, add gradually the foamy yeast and turn everything as a soft dough, now add the butter and knead everything for 10minutes.

Arrange the dough in a bowl covered with a towel,keep aside for atleast for 2hours until they double their volume.


Knead well the dough and and divide into two equal balls, roll a ball as rectangular disc, cut it again as 6-8nos of small rectangles as show in the picture.

Place the chocolate chunks or bar as shown in the picture and roll over it.

Arrange this rolled briochettes over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray,with enough spaces between them.

Keep the baking tray in a warm place for half an hour.

Preheat the oven to 350F for 10minutes.Mix the egg yolk with milk for brushing together, now brush the unbaked briochettes generously.

Bake them for 20-25minutes until the crust turns golden brown.

Cool it completely on a wire rack and enjoy.
