Wow, now that’s a new name and a recipe that is certainly not within my comfort zone. I usually don’t make desserts, I am sure you know it by now. But my 2 yr old is already commanding me to make all sort of sweet dishes because he can eat anything sweet. Well, why am i surprised? that’s very typical of any 2 year old because they have a sweet tooth. So, I bought this kitchen aid dessert recipe book from Borders which is going out of business (too bad) only because it was on sale as I generally don’t buy dessert recipe books. I saw this fancy name yet easy recipe that i could make and satisfy my 2 year old’s sweet craving. And I must say that it turned out darn good but I just wish I had added a little more chocolate.
* 1 – 1/2 cup all purpose flour
* 2 tbsp granulated sugar
* 1 package(1/4 oz) active dry yeast
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp milk
* 1 & 1/2 tbsp oil
* 1 milk chocolate (6 oz bar)cut into small pieces
* 2 tsp colored sugar
Combine flour, salt and sugar and yeast and keep aside. In a sauce pan whisk together milk (except 1 tbsp) and oil in low heat for a few minutes and then pour this mixture into the the flour mixture and make a soft dough. Knead well for a few minutes until dough is smooth. Make a shape of a ball and place into a greased bowl, cover it with towel and keep it in a warm place for about an hour until the dough rises and doubles in size. Then knead again and make small balls about 8 pieces about 3 inch in round, place 2 or 3 pieces of chocolate in the center, fold the edges around the chocolate. Place them on a greased baking sheet about 3 inches apart, cover it with a towel and let it rise for about 20 – 30 minutes.
Preheat over to 400F degrees. Brush each roll with 1 tbsp milk, sprinkle some colored sugar on top of each and bake for about 12 – 15 minutes until golden brown. Serve hot.
1. Since the weather was not warm, I preheated the oven to about 150F and kept the dough inside for rising.
2. I also had food coloring, so I made my own colored sugar
3. The recipe called for butter and egg but I did not use and instead substituted with oil.
Beautiful presentation! It’s a great idea to use oil to substitute butter and egg.
Thanks so much Amy. Yes, we do not eat eggs and hence substituted it with Oil and it turned out well.
