Nutella Bread can be eaten any time of the day. It makes a great grab-and-go breakfast, a sweet mid-morning snack, or a dessert whenever something sweet is desired. My kids and I usually just call it Chocolate Bread, but regardless of what it’s called, it’s great!

Nutella and this homemade sweet bread dough are a match made in chocolate heaven. The faux braid is not difficult to make and results in a beautiful loaf.
How To Braid Bread
Roll out freshly made dough, or dough that has been frozen and thawed, into a large rectangle.
Slather a generous amount of Nutella down the middle third. (My middles are usually quite generous because I like a lot of filling.)
Along the length of each side cut 1-inch strips. Stop cutting just before you reach the filling.
Starting at one end, take the top strip and fold it at an angle over the filling so that it almost touches the other side.
Repeat this step, alternating sides as you go.
When you reach the end be sure to tuck or pinch the final piece. This may not be real pretty and you can always cut it off after it has baked. (You can consider it your sample piece and enjoy it.)
It’s pretty easy and makes your finished loaves look nicer.
