  • Makes
    16 rolls

Ingredients

  • 2-1/4 cups bread flour
  • 5 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
  • EGG WASH:
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the water, milk and butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead in chocolate chunks until dough is smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 16 pieces. Shape each into a roll. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Beat egg and water; brush over rolls. Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
