Chocolate Twisted Bread

Crescent rolls and chocolate chips take front and center stage in this dessert. This bread is also fun for kids to help make!

How to Make

Step 1: Start by preheating your oven, greasing pan, and prep your streusel topping. Use a fork to fluff the mixture then set it aside. 

Step 2: Now you will lay out your crescent roll dough and roll it out to remove the cut lines. I was lucky enough to find, line free, crescent dough sheets.

Step 3: Add your toppings as the recipe stated and roll it up. Twist and place in a greased pan. 

Step 4: Bake as directed! When done carefully remove from the oven and let cook a bit then slice and serve! 

How to Serve Chocolate Bread

  • Slice and serve the bread plain
  • After it cools dust with powdered sugar 
  • Drizzle with chocolate syrup 
  • Pair with a scoop of ice cream 
  • Add a dollop of butter
  • Etc

There are so many fun and creative ways for you to serve up this sweet bread. 

Could I Use White Chocolate Chips Instead

Feel free to use white chocolate chips to replace the milk chips. Or you could even do a semi-sweet, peanut butter or even butterscotch chips. 

Granted if you remove the chocolate chips just adjust the name. 

How to Know When Chocolate Sweet Bread is Done

The top of this sweet bread will become a bit golden brown. Then you can use a toothpick to stick into the bread and if no dough comes out the bread is done. 

You will see melted chocolate if you poke one. The goal is to not see dough from the crescent rolls. 

Best Way to Store

This dessert bread can be stored in a sealable bag or airtight container. Store in the counter at room temperature or place in the fridge. 

Then just slice and enjoy or toss in the microwave for a fresh out of the oven flavor. 

You can also freeze this bread. Once your sweet bread is fully cooled, place in the proper freezer container. Freeze for up to 3 months. 

Thaw the crescent roll bread in the fridge or on the counter if you prefer. Or toss into the microwave to warm up.

Can I Double The Recipe

Want to make extra bread? Simply grab another loaf pan and prep and bake at the same time. Then remove and allow bread to cool then slice and serve.
