Yield: 6 Slices

Materials

Dough

Filling

  • 1 cup dark chocolate
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • cup cocoa powder
  • 2 medium oranges for zest

Instructions

  • Combine water, honey, and yeast. Allow this mixture to sit for 5 minutes until bubbly to ensure that the yeast is active.
  • Combine the rest of the dough ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. The dough will be sticky.
  • Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a few minutes until dough is smooth. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and allow to rise for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • For the filling: Melt butter, chocolate and zest in the microwave for 30 second intervals until melted. Stir in coconut sugar and cocoa powder until smooth.
  • Punch down dough to redistribute the yeast and split into two even dough balls. Using a lightly floured rolling pin, roll 1 dough ball into a 10x14-inch rectangle.
  • Spread filling evenly over the dough leaving a ½-inch border all the way around. From the short end of the dough, roll gently but firmly into a tight coil. Repeat with other half.
  • Cut each rolled dough ball in half lengthwise and lay them next to each other (cut side up). For 1 loaf, take two halves and twist them around one another. Repeat with other two halves. Place each rolled dough into a parchment lined loaf pan. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  • Bake in a preheated 375ºF degree oven for 25-30 minutes or until golden and cooked all the way through.
  • Allow loaves to cool completely before removing from pans.
  • Enjoy!
