Project Description

Bake Some Toffee Chocolate Dessert Challah - A Braided Bread - In One Day!


Hello! I am so glad you joined me for learning to bake this magnificent dessert Challah. Challah is an ancient Jewish style braided bread. It is loved the world over for it's amazing taste and beauty.

Although I am known as the "Sourdough Queen," this formula was written for a complete baking course on learning to bake and braid Challah which includes yeasted and sourdough formulas for Challah breads. You can find it on my site at: http://www.northwestsourdough.com/sourdough-baking-courses/

In this class you will learn to bake a toffee chocolate filled dessert Challah in only one day. You can start it in the morning and have it served for dinner dessert. 


Toffee Chocolate Dessert Challah Bread

You will need:

  • Instant yeast - one packet (7 grams)
  • bread flour
  • sugar
  • baking oil or butter
  • salt
  • 3 Heath Candy bars or other type of toffee candy.
  • 100 grams of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  • kitchen scale that measures in grams (metric). Most kitchen scales will do both standard and metric. 
  • You can use a mixer or mix and knead by hand. 

When you are done baking this beautiful Challah, upload a photo to the project gallery so we can all admire your creation! Once you post a photo of your beautiful dessert Challah, shoot me an email at [email protected], let me know you've posted a photo and I will send you a link to a free download of the first volume in the series, "Discovering Sourdough."
