As far as the cuddly recipe is concerned, I can clearly say that we haven't invented better than the brioche! And these chocolate-hazelnut rolls are no exception to the rule ... Difficult to limit yourself to one part per person. I would say that the number 1 tip for making a brioche is… just take your time. And that's good, since at the moment, we have time!

A brioche is generally a first (long) shoot and a second before baking. For this chocolate-hazelnut rolled brioche recipe, I opted for a first push in the oven at 30 °, covered with a damp cloth. After an hour, the dough had doubled in size. For the second growth, after shaping, a beautiful ray of sunshine did the rest! Overall you shouldn't be in a hurry, expect to do other activities between preparing your dough and final baking.

When it comes to the flavors of the garnish, I opted for the classic - but still very tasty! - with ingredients that you usually have in your cupboard: whole hazelnuts, dark chocolate pastry, hazelnut spread (favorite for the Hazelnut, the famous organic spread… Those who know it know what I'm talking about! This is the one I used here).

No refined sugar for this recipe (you know, I now try with each recipe to reduce or even eliminate refined sugar by finding healthier alternatives), I opted here for honey: the advantage is that 'it deliciously perfumes the brioche dough… You can also opt for agave syrup.

Let's go for the recipe, I hope you like it! Do not hesitate to post your achievements and tag me on Instagram (@liliebakery) so I can see them!

Chocolate-hazelnut rolls

Ideal for snacking!
Prep time1 time
Cook time8 minutes
Yield: 15


  • 250 ml warm milk
  • 2,5 cc dry baker's yeast to rehydrate
  • 80 g soft melted and lukewarm butter
  • 2,5 cs liquid honey
  • 1,5 cs natural vanilla extract
  • 1 oeuf
  • 500 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 this salt
  • +
  • 5 cs spread
  • 40 g softened butter
  • 1 cs flour
  • 45 g dark crushed pastry chocolate
  • A handful of hazelnuts
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • Agave syrup to top off the oven


  • Start by activating the yeast by pouring it into the bowl of warm milk, cover with a cloth and store in a warm place for 10 minutes.
  • In a bowl, combine the flour and salt. In another container (or bowl of the food processor), combine the melted butter, honey, milk and vanilla extract.
  • Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients, in 3 batches, while mixing (flat mixer of the food processor). Add the lightly beaten egg then install the dough hook. Knead low / medium speed for about 8 minutes: the dough should become elastic and come off the bowl well. Cover with a damp cloth in a warm place or like me in an off oven preheated to 30 °. Let the dough grow until it doubles in size (1 hour or more).
  • Then roast the hazelnuts by placing them on a baking sheet for 5 minutes at 180 ° traditional heat. At the exit of the oven, remove the skin of the hazelnuts by rubbing them with a cloth (be careful not to burn yourself) then crush them.
  • Prepare the filling: in a bowl, combine the spread, the flour and the softened butter. Homogenize everything well.
  • On the floured work surface, roll out the brioche dough by making a rectangle measuring approximately 42cm x 28cm. Then cover with the filling using a spatula, then distribute the pieces of crushed chocolate and the crushed roasted hazelnuts (keep a little for decoration after cooking).
  • Then roll the rectangle in its width to form a roll, then cut into 15 pieces using a good ceramic knife. Place each piece flat in a 30x20cm rectangular mold prepared with baking paper. Cover with a tea towel and let rise again for 20 to 30 minutes. The pieces should touch each other after this second push.
  • Preheat the oven to 200 ° traditional heat, coat each piece with a mixture of egg yolk and water. Bake for 8 minutes or until a nice golden color. Out of the oven, with a brush, cover with a little agave syrup for the shiny side and sprinkle with the rest of the crushed hazelnuts.


To be enjoyed warm or cold.
Cover with a tea towel so that the buns do not dry too quickly.

    8 min at 200 degrees and the center was not cooked at all! Shouldn't I bake 25min at 180 degrees like your cinnamon buns recipe?

      Hello Emilie, for this recipe it's about 8 minutes, but as each oven is different, I advise you to adapt according to what you see in your oven. In any case, the outside of the buns must be golden brown. See you soon :)

    Thank you for the recipe, it makes me really want! I will have to test it very soon!! I will make it with 20g of fresh yeast. Personally, I find that the taste of the brioche is better.
