Chocolate Chip Hanukkah Challah
Hanukkah is about latkes and rugulah but I always like a new tradition. Chocolate chip challah seems perfect for the occasion! This is delicately sweet, strewn with chocolate and scented with vanilla. Braided with a chocolate-flavored dough and a regular, sweet one and topped with sugar, this is a divine sweet challah that's just perfect for Hanukkah dessert or coffee break.
2 tablespoons instant yeast
Place both doughs in two bowls that have been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and insert in a large plastic bag. Allow to rise until almost doubled in size, 45-60 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Gentle deflate the doughs. Make into three strands and braid into one large loaf or two smaller loaves. Bake as loaves or round the dough (end to end) and place each (or a large one) in spring form pans to make circular challah. Brush with egg wash and dust with coarse sugar. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and let rise 45-60 minutes.
Bake for 27-30 minutes, or until middle looks like it has just set, and the color is golden.
