Chocolate Challah


Gilding the lily? We don't think so.

If you’re a baker-at-heart who loves to play around with fancy measuring spoons and flour sifters, you may want to shield your eyes from this recipe. We’ll admit it: this one’s more for the folks who are better at buying food than making it, which is totally ok, especially when you’re talking about candy bars and delicious breads. What it lacks in technique, it makes up for in sheer Turducken-style ingenuity. And caramel.

Recipe provided by Yosef I. Abramowitz:

Put two Milky Way bars in the middle of whatever favorite challah-dough recipe you like. Packaged, prepared frozen challahs, like those sold at many supermarkets, work well. Defrost and slice them down the middle lengthwise to make an opening in which to put the chocolate.

Bake. Serve warm.

If the Milky Way Challah is already baked and cooled off, it can be microwaved for 60 seconds before Shabbat candle-lighting and motzi, the blessing over the challah.
