Khristmas Kitchen

Where I attempt to channel good karma into baked goods..
Episode 3, Chocolate Orange Breakfast Twists


I found this recipe on Pinterest of course and immediately filed it away for the holidays. I had the chance to make it for a festive holiday brunch we were invited to over the weekend.

The dough comes together quickly in the stand mixer,but did take a little longer than 2 hours to rise.

Before rolling out the dough, whisk together fresh orange zest, fresh orange juice, granulated sugar and butter. It will be lumpy, but will be lumper once you add the chopped dark chocolate.

Roll the dough out to about 1/2″ thick and 12″x 18″ rectangle shape.

Spread the orange, butter, sugar, chocolate mixture over the dough leaving an inch all around.

Roll the sheet along the long side and slice into a dozen even pieces. Take each piece and stretch it and twist into a figure 8, all at the same time. Place twists, side by side, in two rows of 6, in a shallow greased baking pan.

Cover and let rise, then bake as directed. 

 When cool, glaze the twists with mix of confectioner sugar and a few drops of orange juice. You can also give them a slice with a knife or bench scraper edge.

Twists can be warmed before serving, but not necessary.

This Khristmas Kitchen had great karma. Great to make any season…for any reason!
