Chocolate Quicky Sticky Bread

Pin It
This came out of Ava's Cooking For Kids cookbook and it was really quite simple to make although it did have quite a few steps to it.  The kids liked the surprise bite of chocolate inside and the gooey-ness of the outside.  I need to get a bundt cake pan that doesn't come apart.  The one I used has the inside tube and bottom part that come out of the sides and even though there is a lip on the bottom to hold in thicker mixes, most of the caramel sauce leaked out.  Thankfully I had the foresight to put it on my big cookie sheet so it didn't spill all over the oven.  I will definitely make it again.

Chocolate Quicky Sticky Bread

2 loaves (16 ounces each) frozen bread dough
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon Hershey's cocoa
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted & divided
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 bag Hershey's Mini Kisses semi-sweet or milk chocolate baking pieces (I used milk chocolate)

Thaw loaves as directed on package; let rise until doubled.
Stir together granulated sugar, cocoa and cinnamon in a medium bowl.  In a microwave safe bowl stir together 1/4 cup butter, brown sugar & water.  Microwave 30 to 60 seconds or until smooth when stirred.  Pour into fluted tube or bundt cake pan.
Heat oven to 350.  Pinch off pieces of bread dough big enough to hold 3 pieces of mini kisses.  Seal dough around kisses, dip each ball into the remaining 1/4 melted butter; roll in cocoa-sugar mixture and place balls into pan. 
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool 20 minutes in pan then invert onto serving plate.  Store in an airtight container.
