Goya Choco Hazelnut Braid

My Goya crepes were amazing (and my kids enjoyed it!) so I thought of using another Goya product in my recipe.

I made my own version of Nutella Braid but this time using our local product – Goya Choco Hazelnut Spread




The texture of this bread is similar to pies and tarts, flaky but very moist and soft.

I wasn’t able to do a step-by-step photo as to how to create the braids, however this demo from Eat,Live,Run  can help you figure out how it’s done.


The trick is  to just keep on stretching your dough until it rolled into a big rectangular shape.

Be careful not to get it too thin in any places or you dough will end up with a hole or a tear when you start cutting its sides into strips.

And for my final tip – spread A LOT of chocolate! 🙂
