Chocolate Chip Soft Preztel Bites
- 1 package dry active yeast
- 1 1/2 c. warm water
- 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 4 c. all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 c. chocolate chips (I used Nestle semi-sweet)
- 1 egg
- Dipping Sauce
- 1 c. chocolate chips
- 1/2 c. peanut butter
Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the yeast and warm water. Let sit until the yeast dissolves (about 2-3 minutes).
Stir the brown sugar into the yeast mixture until dissolved.
Add the flour, salt, and chocolate chips. Stir to combine. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead with floured hands until smooth.
Beat the egg in a small bowl; set aside.
Divide the dough into 6 portions. Working with one at a time, roll the dough balls out into ropes that are about 1 inch in diameter. Use a sharp knife to cut 1-inch lengths of dough.
Drop each of the dough pieces into the egg mixture and immediately transfer to prepared baking sheets. Place them about ½ inch apart.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown.
Combine chocolate chips and peanut butter in a small saucepan.
Heat over low heat, stirring often, until completely melted.
