Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate. In Lovers Day, chocolate is allowed even in bread. View like to play a game and do all the steps of this delish roll. It's light, delicate texture and it's so charming on the table. Serve warm, just removed from oven, the melted chocolate in the dough is scandalously yummy!

600g flour
10g active dry yeast
2 tbsp white vegetable shortening
1 egg, beaten lightly
300ml lukewarm water
150g cold butter in cubes

100g grated milk chocolate
1 egg, beaten lightly

Sift flour and salt and stir in dry yeast. Rub in the shortening with your fingertips. Add the egg and water enough to mix to have a soft dough. Knead it for about 10 minutes to make a smooth elastic dough.
Divide butter into 3 parts. Chill in fridge.
Roll out the dough to form a rectangle. Dot one butter portion over the dough and fold the dough in 3 parts, press with a rolling pin. Re-roll and fold again. Cover the dough and chill for 30 minutes. Repeat the process 2 times with butter and another 2 times without butter.
Roll out again the dough and cut into 15 triangles. Brush with egg, place a chocolate portion and roll up beginning in the larger part. Cover and set aside to rise for about 40 minutes in a warm place. Brush with egg and bake in preheated oven at 420˚F for 20-25 minutes, until is golden brown.

Serve: Freely rolls for snack.
