When I saw this incredible bread I knew I had to try it. I haven't baked with the group Bread Baking Buddies for ages, but this bread was too good to pass. Plus it is so festive! It is not for the inexperienced bakers, the brioche is not a beginner bread and the rolling and chocolate spreading were not that simple. However, the end result is so beautiful! In Italian we say "anche l'occhio vuole la sua parte", which means that even the eye has to be pleased.

- I rolled the sections really thin in order to be able to create a nice layering effect, and in retrospect I should have chilled the circles before spreading the nutella since they were quite soft (even after softening the spread in the microwave).
- I cut the staked circles to have a perfect circle before the twist. The leftover made a tasty although misshapen morsel.
- I used the top of the spread in the center of the bread before cutting, this made sure the cuts were even in the center.
Can't wait to try it!
