Chocolate rolls (Kakaos csiga)



The chocolate rolls are the all time favorite of Hungarian kids...and not only kids... I usually make the dough in the bread making machine because it simply works better than my hands... This recepie has worked very well for me, I hope it will work also for you...

Ingredients:

For the dough:

400 g flour
2 eggyolks
1 pkg of dried yeast
40 g butter
44 g sugar
250 ml milk


For the filling:
140 g sugar
130 g butter
3 Tbsp cocoa powder

200 ml cream
50 g sugar



Preparation:

Mix all the ingredients of the dough and work it well with your hands - at least 20 minutes (or use the machine...it is MUCH easier). Let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour. When it is done, extend it with a rolling pin in a form of a square and 2 cm thick. Pour on it the filling that you previously mixed well, roll it up and cut it in 2-3 cm thick slices. Put these rolls in a medium sized pan - on baking paper - 2 cm apart and let them rise for additional 30 minutes. Bake them in preheated oven on medium heat. When the rolls start to get a golden color, pour over them the cream and sugar mix. This will make them remain soft. Bake them for 10 more minutes on lower heat.

WOW! Someone who knows kakaos csigak! I've got to try your recipe! My favorites were from a small town where the train stopped outside of Hortobagy on the way back to Debrecen. Hajduszo- something, if I recall.

Mmmm. Those were SO good!
