Chocolate Filled Buns

Chocolate Filled Buns

Chocolate-filled buns, also known as chocolate buns or chocolate-filled rolls, are a delicious baked treat made with a dough that is rolled and filled with chocolate before being baked. The dough is typically a sweet, yeast-based dough that rises and becomes soft and fluffy when baked. The filling consists of pieces or bars of chocolate, which melt and create a gooey, chocolaty center when baked. The buns are often brushed with egg wash before baking to give them a shiny and golden crust. After baking, they can be optionally dusted with powdered sugar for added sweetness and decoration. Chocolate-filled buns are enjoyed as a delightful breakfast, snack, or dessert option by chocolate lovers of all ages.


  • 270ml (1 cup) milk
  • 15g fresh yeast
  • 520g (4 cups) flour
  • 120g (1/2 cup) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 80ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
  • 200g dark chocolate
  • Additional egg for brushing
  • Powdered sugar for decoration


  1. Dissolve the fresh yeast in a small bowl with milk, stirring until the yeast is fully dissolved.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, sugar, prepared yeast mixture, and egg. Mix well with a spatula until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Begin kneading the dough until a smooth consistency is achieved. Gradually add the vegetable oil while continuing to knead. Once the dough is smooth, cover it with cling film and let it rise for 2 hours.
  3. Once the rising time is complete, transfer the dough to a floured working surface. Roll it out into a rectangle shape, approximately 30x40cm in size. Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces. Place a piece of dark chocolate onto each dough piece.
  4. Starting from one end, roll up each rectangle of dough, making sure to enclose the chocolate within. Roll the dough firmly to form a bun shape.
  5. Arrange the buns on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover them with a cloth and allow them to rise for 1 hour.
  6. After the hour has passed, preheat the oven to 190°C/374°F. Brush the risen buns with beaten egg, then transfer them to the oven. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until the buns turn golden brown.
  7. Once baked, remove the buns from the oven and let them cool. Decorate the buns with a dusting of powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
