Nutella Braided Bread
These days I try to bake most things at home. But kneading the dough to make bread, buns or rolls takes some effort. Nevertheless it is worth the effort and so this time I wanted to try something a bit more fancy. So I tried a nutella braided bread which is basically bread dough filled with hazelnut chocolate spread. This is braided into a nice plait and then baked off till golden brown.
A hot cup of coffee and some ooey gooey nutella braided bread to go with it can set you right up. I know chocolate spreads are rich in calories but hey cannot hurt to make this once in a while. A small piece would not hurt anyone and share your nutella braided bread. It is just fun to make it and eat it. In fact involve kids while making this, yes a bit of mess will be on your hands to clean up later. But who’s complaining!
Make this nutella braided bread at tea-time and have it as a snack. It is a perfect after-school snack. It tastes best when served straight out of the oven or just warm. Dunk it in a glass of milk or enjoy by sinking your teeth into some soft bread with melting chocolate spread. Also remember the nutella braided one need not be a well made plait it can be rustic which makes it a true homemade baked item. Talking of homemade baked items, some more from FOI:

Notes
Carefully work with the chocolate spread, as it can create a mess

While braiding the log, it does not have to be perfect, it creates a sort of tear and share texture

You can also just make into filled buns if preferred
