Publisher Photo
This swirled yeast bread is chock-full of chocolate chips. The sweet slices don't need any butter. Keep one loaf for your family and share the other with neighbor. —Dawn Onuffer, Crestview, Florida

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the sugar, salt, eggs, cream cheese and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a floured surface; divided in half. Roll each portion into a 12-in. x 8-in. rectangle. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and cocoa until smooth. Spread over each rectangle to within 1/2 in. of edges. Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Brush tops of loaves with egg. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. Cover loosely with foil. Bake 15-20 minutes longer or until loaves sound hollow when tapped. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).
