BBD # 30 Twisted Breads : Torcetti al Cioccolato

This event is hosted by Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies I'm sure you all know her: she is such a wonderful baker, cook, reviewer, mother, wife, cheese maker and everything else I'm sure you came across her creativity at least once.

She decided for twisted breads and few days before I had seen this recipe in Genny's blog and we fell in love with them.
This torcetti are not exactly sweet nor salted ..they are both. I remade Genny exact recipe (I always do the first time) but I'm sure they can be varied in many ways.
If you are a wild yeast owner it's a great recipe: you can make it with the leftovers, it doesn't need any raising time and they are just a wonderful snack !


400 gr sourdough (not refreshed) (I use a 50% sourdough :100gr sourdough,100gr flour,50 gr water)
4 TBS flour
60 gr olive oil
80 gr bittersweet chocolate cut in small pieces
Fleur de sel

Start kneading the oil in the sourdough, add the flour, the chocolate and the salt. Form in any desired shape sprinkle with Fleur de Sel. Bake until nice and crunchy about 20 minutes in a 400° preheated oven.

Please visit Genny for more beautiful photos !!
