And for the shaping of this Chocolate Cinnamon Star Bread is so simple, just everyone will make their own shape. For example, some people will love it in just four pieces of the star, and some like me love 8 pieces of the star, so you have all control over how your star will look, and don’t worry, you can judge your start after you take it out from your oven. This star-shaped treat is not just for parties or Christmas as I plan for, it’s fun and yummy anytime. Mixing chocolate and cinnamon is like creating a good flavor that feels so delicious. And when you roll out the dough and put the star together, it’s not just baking, is like making art, really enjoyable, the first time I feel my self creative was when I made a certain dessert.


To create this Chocolate Cinnamon Star Bread, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 packet (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

How to Make Chocolate Cinnamon Star Bread?

  1. Mix warm milk and sugar in a bowl. Sprinkle yeast on it and wait until it gets all frothy.
  2. In a big bowl, mix flour, melted butter, eggs, and salt. Add the frothy yeast mix and knead until it’s soft. Let it grow big.
  3. Mix chocolate chips, brown sugar, and cinnamon to make a yummy filling for our star bread.
  4. Roll the dough into a big circle. Put the tasty filling on it, leaving some space at the edges. Cut it into some pieces, depending on how many points you want your star to be, I cut it into 8 pieces, then stack them to make your star.
  5. Put your star bread in the oven until it turns golden and smells amazing. Let it cool a little before slicing and then enjoying it.
