• 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 packet active dry yeast
• 1/2 cup whole milk
• 1/4 cup unsalted butter
• 3 large eggs
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/2 tsp salt
• 1/4 cup cocoa powder
• 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter (for the filling)
• 1 cup brown sugar (for the filling)
• 1 tbsp ground cinnamon (for the filling)


. Warm the milk and melt 1/4 cup of butter together in a saucepan. Allow it to cool until warm but not hot.
. In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Add the milk mixture, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until a dough forms.
. Gradually add the remaining flour and knead until the dough is smooth and elastic. Place it in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let it rise for 1 hour.
. While the dough is rising, prepare the filling. In a saucepan, melt 1/2 cup of butter. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined. Remove from heat and let it cool.
. Roll out the dough into a rectangle. Spread the cooled filling evenly, and sprinkle with chocolate chips.
. Roll up the dough tightly from the longer side, creating a log. Cut it in half lengthwise, then twist both halves together. Place it in a greased loaf pan.
. Let the babka rise for an additional 30 minutes.
. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Bake the babka for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
. Cool the babka in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack.
. Slice, serve, and enjoy the irresistible swirls of goodness!
