Chanukah Chocolate Babka Challah
Festival of Lights
Chag Urim Sameach!
Chocolate coins are a favorite at Chanukah. I’ve taken the chocolate and put it in the challah. What occurs is a marriage between a sweet challah and a babka. What a taste!!
Light and sweet and chocolatey makes this challah one that will become a family tradition. Many thanks to my baking friends for their suggestions as I was developing this recipe!
In the darkness of the winter, the lights of Chanukah brighten the home and shine out into the world. A most Happy Holiday of Lights to our Jewish readers.
