Chocolate chips rolls!

A few days ago a friend asked me what do I like more, cooking or baking.

Obviously I like both.. a lot!!

Anyaway..I replied that I like cooking more.

She was a bit surprised and said she was sure my answer would be the opposite because it's seems to her like I'm baking all the time.

And actually lately I do, although I have a more natural connection to cooking.

I don't know, I feel good and relaxed when I'm kneading a dough 😅

So here I am, coming up with another pastry recipe.

It's something I discovered on a trip to the States - chocolate chip rolls. HEAVEN.

So simple, so so good!

Especially in the morning with the coffee :)

I do not have much more to say and describe, fluffy and yummy rolls with chocolate chips.

Let's start :)


  • 500 grams of flour '00' [can also be replaced with all-purpose]

  • 100 grams of soft butter

  • 100 grams of sugar

  • 10 grams of dry yeast

  • 3 eggs

  • 165 grams of really cold milk [you can add two ice cubes to it, but calculate it by the weight of the milk. Should be a total of 165 grams of milk including the weight of the ice]

  • A tablespoon of canola oil

  • Pinch of salt

  • 60-80 grams of mini chocolate chips

  • For brushing before baking: 1 egg, 2 tablespoons milk and a teaspoon of powdered sugar

  • For glazing after baking: 3 tablespoons maple syrup and 2 tablespoons boiling water


  • Place the flour, sugar and yeast in the mixer bowl and mix well with a spoon.

  • Add the rest of the ingredients except of the butter and salt and start mixing with a kneading hook on low speed.

  • As the dough begins to form, gradually add the softened butter until completely incorporated into the dough.

  • Add a pinch of salt and continue to knead for 10-15 minutes on medium speed.

  • Cover and let the dough rest in the mixer bowl for 5-10 minutes, after that transfer the dough to a lightly oiled work surface. The dough will be a little sticky, oil your hands a little as well.

  • With your hands, open the dough a little, sprinkle half the amount of chocolate chips and fold the dough.

  • Open it again gently and spread the rest of the chocolate chips and again fold the dough.

  • Open the dough again and folded it several times to incorporate the chocolate chips inside it.

  • Shape the dough to a ball, transfer it to an oiled bowl, cover it plastic warp and move to the refrigerator to rise overnight.

  • After 8-24 hours remove the dough from the refrigerator, separate and shape it to a 150-160 grams balls.

  • Arrange the balls in a pan, leave spaces between so it would have room to rise.

  • Let it rise for an hour and a half.

  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

  • Before you transfer the rolls into the oven, brush it with a beaten egg with milk and powdered sugar.

  • Bake for 15-18 minutes.

  • Mix 3 tablespoons maple and 2 tablespoons boiling water for glazing.

  • Remove from the oven and brush the rolls with the glaze maple.

Enjoy :)
